Syracuse has fallen back in the Antonio Barton sweepstakes — Cuse Clicks

After visiting Maryland last week, it appeared as if Memphis transfer Antonio Barton was headed home. It appears now that the Terps have some new competition for Barton from Tennessee. Barton was in Knoxville “Wednesday or Thursday,” according to a source. Initially, it was thought that Maryland’s main competitor in this recruiting battle was going to be Syracuse, where another close friend of the former Lake Clifton standout has become one of the team’s stars. But C.J. Fair’s influence did not weigh as heavily as the impending arrival of 5-star freshman point guard Tyler Ennis.
