There’s a great article from the News-Sentinel over the weekend on CJ Fair and Rakeem Christmas, who have been reunited with the Mad Ants. And on that note, on to today’s recruiting links…
2016 big man Taurean Thopmson says that Syracuse and Seton Hall are coming at him hardest right now, writes SNY.tv’s very own, Adam Zagoria. The Brewster (N.H.) Academy prospect says that he’s friendly with Malachi Richardson and Frank Howard, and complimented Syracuse when asked. “Syracuse, the tradition,” he said. “Coach [Jim] Boeheim is a great coach.”
Courtside Films posted a new video of Syracuse commit Matt Moyer, who went “beast-mode” in two games with South Kent. It’s safe to say that he is going to wow fans once he arrives on campus in 2016.
Kentucky coach John Calipari and UConn head coach Kevin Ollie were on hand to watch Hamidou Diallo over the weekend, Zagoria also reports. Diallo was slowed by injuries to his Achilles and thumb, and only scored 8 points in the National Prep Showcase. Syracuse is one of many schools to offer the 2017 5-star guard.
2016 Sunshine State defensive back Cycoby Burch has Syracuse and West Virginia atop his rankings right now reports Scout.com’s Corey Bender. The 3-star recruit took a visit to Syracuse during the Clemson game and liked what he saw. “The visit was great, and the coaches were great and fun to be around,” Burch said.
Have a great start to your Thanksgiving week, everyone!
