Syracuse Basketball 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

Coming up on what should be a great year for the Syracuse Orange!

 

with 5 returning starters plus Freshmen Carey, Boeheim and Braswell this Cuse club can make some noise in March

 

Also 2019 Center Ajok has just committed to the Orange 

 

Heres to a great year!

Imagine if Bazley hadn't been a total idiot and attended the Cuse.  They would have had even more talent.

Coveted 4* 2019 SF, Quincy Guerrier, to announce his final 3 tonight at 8:30.  Cuse and Oregon believed to be among his favorites.

 

Also, Joe Girard III to announce his commitment within a week or so.  It’s believed to be between Cuse and Duke, so you know....

 

Edit: Guerrier narrows it down to Syracuse, Oregon and Illinois.

I thought you guys were calling a season when that guy went to the G League then he even blew that off?

 

Akok Akok committed to SU?

Screw Bazley, whatever. He could’ve been the cherry on top 

 

Its a sweet 16 team returning 5 starters, a couple of which are NBA players, and 3 really good recruits as well

 

not to mention a 6’6 SG transfer who is now eligible after sitting last season 

 

Jon Bowl Ajok was the center to commit. 6’11 current 3* defensive center

Perhaps the best 3 point shooter of the ‘19 class.  Great job by Red Autry and Gmac to steal him away from Duke and Michigan.

2019 4* SF Quincy Guerrier announces that he will commit on 10/31.  Looks to be between Oregon and Cuse right now with Illinois on the outside looking in.

 

Also, 2019 5* C Akok Akok (pronounced Ay-kook Ay-Kook😂) making his official visit to Syracuse this weekend.  Believed by most to be a Syracuse lean right now.

Bravo to the Orange for bringing UB to the Dome again. Tuesday, December 18 on ESPN 2.

Amazing that Glens Falls High School has churned out two (Jimmer) D-1/NBA level players in recent years. This was big news!!!!

According to their coach in a video they made about Girard, he said all their varsity seniors had D1 offers

 

though probably not to Syracuse

Assuming they probably had at least one or two seniors who weren’t in the starting five, that’s pretty astounding.  Hell, even if they all were starters.  Especially given that they’re a smaller class B school.

 

Girard is fun to watch.  I see the G-Mac comparisons in his game.

Crazy.  On top of breaking NYS HS scoring record in basketball.

Headed to 2K Classic down in NYC at MSG.  Thursday 11/15 vs UCONN and Friday 11/16 winner plays the winner of Oregon/Iowa game.  Anyone else going or going to be down in the big apple?

Based on what I've heard, we seem to be pretty confident that Guerrier will commit. Seem to feel like Akok Akok is a coin flip and might be less likely than Isaiah Stewart at this point. My gut feeling is that we end up with neither Akok or Stewart; think Akok Akok ends up at UConn and Stewart at Michigan State or Washington. I hope I'm wrong, but that's my prediction at this point.

I think we land Guerrier and Akok.  I think our chances at Stewart have improved since Girard committed, and I heard that he has a really good official visit, but I still think he ends up at either Michigan State or Duke.

Our chances at getting Stewart have definitely improved a lot recently. We had been thinking for awhile that we had no realistic chance at him and now there's definitely hope. I know Stewart hated his visit to Kentucky at least, so unless they make a convincing last ditch effort, they're probably out on him.

 

We'll see with Akok Akok; I'd prefer him over Stewart personally. He's keeping things really close to his vest as far as his recruitment goes. Someone close to him is trying to push him to UConn and has been telling UConn that he's 100% going there, but AA himself has denounced that. I really hope he ends up in orange but I'm not really confident about it.

 

Guerrier...I think Syracuse would be pretty shocked if they don't get him. Assuming we get him, I'll be pretty satisfied with him and Goodine as the big commitments. Obviously adding Akok and or Stewart to the mix would make it even better though :)

I think most people forget about Goodine who is already a very good commit for ‘19.  With the additions of Guerrier and either Akok and/or Stewart, this has the potential to be one of JB’s best recruiting classes ever.  Your take on Akok being partial to UCONN is new to me, and I’m guessing based on someone “in the know.”  Last I heard he was believed to be a Cuse lean.  We’ll see...

FWIW, I'm hearing that the coaching staff feels really good about Stewart coming to Syracuse.  Apparently, there is family pressure to stay closer to home, and after his official visit, he is really warming up to the idea of doing so.

 

For those who have followed me in the Syracuse hoops threads, I have made it known that I have a "source" within the SU athletic department (and another actually who is an alum and prominent donor to the university).  My information has proved to be correct on many occasions, and turned out to be wrong on other occasions.  College basketball recruiting is a crazy thing, and decisions can change at the last minute for different reasons.  Take this information for what it's worth.
