Syracuse recruiting top Canadian prospects — Cuse Clicks

Syracuse has a tough road ahead

Comparing any young Canadian player to Andrew Wiggins is inherently unfair, yet some of Canada’s best young players are being recruited by Syracuse, Georgetown and Boston College, among other major programs. That group includes 6-5 2016 guard Jamal Murray, 6-4 2015 guard Jaylen Poyser and 6-8 2015 center Kyle Alexander — all of whom play with the new Canadian prep program Athlete Institute, which we profiled here last month. Syracuse, Georgetown and Boston College “have probably been in the most,” Larry Blunt, the team’s head coach, told by phone Friday.
