Recruiting Roundup: Syracuse and Kentucky working hardest for Quade Green

Mike Hopkins should take over after Jim Boeheim retires

Syracuse women’s soccer has ended nonconference play with 7-1-1 record! On to today’s recruiting links…’s very own, Adam Zagoria, writes that Syracuse and Kentucky are the two schools working hardest for 2017 point guard Quade Green. SU coaches Gerry McNamara and Jim Boeheim met with Green earlier in the week at Neumann-Goretti (PA). “They love him,” Goretti coach Carl Arrigale said of Syracuse.

Another 2017 Syracuse recruit, big man Nick Richards, met with Kentucky coach John Calipari on Thursday, Zagoria also reports. Kentucky is “laser focused” on the St. Patrick’s (NJ) product. Syracuse, UConn, Indiana and Arizona are the other schools pursuing Richards.

247Sports’ Adam Rowe reports that elite 2018 Norristown (Pa.) Westtown School forward Cameron Reddish will be at Penn State on an unofficial visit over the weekend. Reddish already holds offers from bluebloods like Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Syracuse, Villanova, and Virginia.

» Related: Brandon Randolph includes Syracuse in final four’s Mike McAllister reports that Syracuse will be meeting with Reading (PA) guard Lonnie Walker on Friday. Walker recently listed Syracuse in his top five schools along with Kentucky, Villanova, Arizona and Miami.

Maryland is the latest school to extend an offer to 2018 Hudson Catholic (NJ) guard Javhon Quinerly, writes MadeHoops’ Pat Lawless. UCONN, Villanova and Kansas are among the schools to have already extended offers. He previously attended Syracuse’s Elite Camp.

Perhaps one of them will commit soon, but for the moment, Syracuse doesn’t have a single commit in the class of 2017, writes’s Mike Waters. The coaches aren’t worried, though, “instead continuing to work on their targeted recruits by watching them in open gyms and scheduling in-home visits.”

Have a great weekend, everyone!
