Plenty of recruiting news from both the Syracuse basketball and football world on this Halloween edition of the roundup.
We start with Syracuse basketball and 2023 four-star guard Mike Williams. He is set to announce his decision on Nov. 6, and the Orange is in his final five schools, according to 247 Sports. Along with SU, Williams is considering DePaul, Wake Forest, LSU and Clemson. The Bishop Walsh School guard is ranked 96th in his class, and took an official visit to Syracuse back in mid-September.
When Syracuse football hosted Notre Dame at the JMA Wireless Dome, the basketball team hosted 2024 Archbishop Wood guard Jalil Bethea according to Sports Illustrated’s Mike McAllister. He is a four-star guard according to 247, and is the No. 63 overall recruit in his class. Among the schools pursuing him include Miami, Penn State, Pitt, Rutgers, UCLA and Villanova. Syracuse extended an offer in September and most recently, he was offered by Notre Dame. “Syracuse is definitely one of my top schools,” he said to McAllister.
Staying in the 2024 class, Syracuse is also in the running for elite point guard Elliot Cadeau. The five-star point guard is ranked eighth overall, and has trimmed his list to Kansas, Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse, Texas, and Texas Tech. On3 Sports’ Joe Tipton chatted with him about those schools. About Syracuse, Cadeau said: “They were one of the first schools to recruit me. They show me a lot of love and I probably would like to visit them.”
Moving over to the football world, 2023 quarterback LaNorris Sellers recently picked up an offer from South Carolina, and that may threaten his Syracuse commitment, according to Rivals.com. Sellers flipped to Syracuse from his original commitment to Virginia back in March, following Robert Anae and Jason Beck. But the three-star South Carolina native is projected to change his commitment for a third time, according to Adam Friedman and Jason Higdon.
Syracuse offered 2026 running back/linebacker Savion Hiter over the weekend. The Virginia prospect holds offers from Maryland, JMU and Virginia already.
The Orange also offered 2025 running back Iverson Howard. The Quince Orchard (MD) prospect holds offers from West Virginia, Boston College, Ole’ Miss and Wisconsin, and is a top 100 prospect with a 4-star ranking from 247 Sports.
2024 offensive lineman Fletcher Westphal holds over 30 offers, and was on the Syracuse campus over the weekend. Prior to the visit, he said he would be cutting his list of schools on Nov. 30. Among the programs to offer include Pitt, Penn State, West Virginia, Georgia, Auburn, Clemson, Stanford and Florida. Rivals rates him as a four-star prospect and he is a top 250 recruit.
