Ennis planning visits

Five-star 2013 point guard Tyler Ennis visited Syracuse last weekend, and is considering visits to Louisville and Arizona. Scout.com national analyst Brian Snow has an update.


The Syracuse Orange hosted one of the top uncommitted class of 2013 point guards over the weekend. Newark (NJ) St. Benedict's Prep floor general Tyler Ennis enjoyed his time in Syracuse, and says that more trips will be coming up in the future.

It was a busy weekend for Ennis. On Saturday he took in the action at the Carrier Dome, and then on Sunday he returned to his St. Benedict's team to help them rout St. Patrick's.

"I think everybody is just buying into their role and knows what they have to do to help us get the win," said Ennis of his team's victory. "I think as long as we all keep staying in our role, we will continue to do well."

With his team cruising to an easy win, that capped a heck of a weekend. Ennis' trip to Syracuse proved to be an excellent one.

"I liked the visit a lot," said Ennis. "The visit was great. They had 32,000 fans there so it was almost sold out. It was a great game to go to and I really liked what I saw."

So far Ennis says his conversations with the Syracuse staff have been excellent.

"They have offered and they are telling me who will be there and what I would be coming into," said Ennis. "Just stuff like that. I am having good talks with them."

Along with Syracuse, Ennis has offers from Arizona, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, Rice, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Virginia, and West Virginia amongst others.

With the visit to Syracuse in his rear view, Ennis says a few more are coming up.

"There is nothing set right now," said Ennis about potential visits. "I am waiting until the end of the season before setting anything up. I know my father is talking about visiting Arizona and Louisville for visits."

When it comes to the Arizona Wildcats, Ennis says it is their history with guards that really stands out.

"They have a good history with guards," said Ennis. "They have a lot of guards who went pro, and they didn't bring in a lot guards in the 2012 class though they brought in a ton of talent. They will only have one point guard on their roster with Josiah Turner so it gives me a chance to come in and play right away."

Ennis also feels Louisville could give him an excellent opportunity early on to in his college career.

"Peyton Siva is a junior now, so by the time I get there they won't have a pure point guard," said Ennis. "All the guys they have now are combo guards, so that is something that interests me because I could make an impact from day one."

While at the moment Ennis says he isn't close to making a decision, he does know what he pays attention to when on visits and researching schools.

"Basketball wise I see how they play and the offense they run," said Ennis. "Also I am just seeing how the players live and the atmosphere at the games, stuff like that."
