Congratulations to former Syracuse star Chris McCullough, who made his NBA debut with the Brooklyn Nets last night after being away from action for 13 months. On to today’s recruiting links…
Hamidou Diallo’s high school coach tells Syracuse.com’s Mike Waters that the elite 2017 prospect will take an unofficial visit to Syracuse. He is the No. 15 prospect in Scout.com’s class, and holds offers from UConn, St. John’s and Maryland, among others.
Another elite guard in the 2017 class, Trevon Duval, sits down with Nate Bucsko from PrepCircuit.com for an interview. They talk about hoops, hobbies and standing out. Duval holds an offer from Syracuse, among many, many others.
Switching to football, Scout.com’s Mike McAllister reports that local product, 2017 CBA wide receiver Noah Jordan-Williams, will take a visit to Syracuse later this month. Jordan-Williams received an offer when Scott Shafer was the head coach, and he also holds an offer from Buffalo.
2017 Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) corner back Cedrick Dwyer has received offers from Wisconsin, Syracuse and Florida Atlantic, according to Scout.com’s Corey Bender. “What I like about ‘Cuse is their coach’s (Nick Monroe) swagger. That’s the swag daddy right there,” Dort said.
Bender also reports on 2017 Miramar (Fla.) defensive end Owen Carney. Duke and Kansas State have the early lead for his services, and Syracuse, Wake Forest, and Kentucky are among the other schools to extend offers.
We end today on a sad note with Terrel Hunt, whose quest for a sixth season of eligibility was again turned down by the NCAA. Best of luck to you on your future endeavors.
