Syracuse freshman Matthew Moyer will redshirt this season, the school announced on Tuesday.

The reason, according to head coach Jim Boeheim, is, “preseason time missed with an injury.” Moyer sat out more than a month after injuring his toe this summer. In the first exhibition game that Syracuse played, Moyer saw just nine minutes, the lowest total for anyone on the roster.

Moyer is a 6-foot-8 freshman from Ohio by way of South Kent Prep in Connecticut. Given the amount of depth the Orange have on their front court this season, this loss should not affect their season much.

The Orange open the year with Colgate on Friday.
