Recruiting Roundup: Syracuse commit Moe Neal to face ex-commit Robert Washington

Here’s to the start of the Syracuse basketball season tonight! Hope springs eternal in early November. Let’s get to today’s recruiting links…

There’s a big game between Forestview and East Gaston coming up this week, and there’s extra intrigue for Syracuse fans. As we all know, SU commit Moe Neal plays for Forestview, and East Gaston features former Orange commit Robert Washington. The winner will also have a much easier road to tournament seedings that are released on Saturday, Nov. 7.

Syracuse commit Monquavion Brinson has a new highlight reel. The 2016 Mays (Ga.) defensive back is a 3-star recruit on 24/7 Sports and committed to Syracuse over the summer. Another recruit with a new set of highlights is Jalen Mayen. The 2018 quarterback from Texas has offers from Syracuse, Oregon State and Houston according to Scout.

Lindsey Scott has been invited to the Offense-Defense All-American Game in Daytona Beach, he tweeted over the weekend. The 2016 quarterback from Zachary (LA) is a three-star recruit and commited to Syracuse in early October.

Elite 2017 wing Michael Porter Jr. has a new highlight video. Porter has narrowed his list to 10 schools, and Syracuse has made the cut. He is currently the No. 3 recruit in his class, according to ESPN, and the No. 1 small forward.

Seton Hall hosted a “Fab Five” over the weekend, consisting of  2018 recruits Jahvon Quinerly, Luther Muhammad, Atiba Taylor, Louis King and Naz Reid, according to’s very own, Adam Zagoria. The five were met with a poster of the quintent in Pirates uniforms and the words “Seton Hall’s Next Generation.” King and Reid both hold offers from Syracuse.
