Haverford (Pa.) School guard Cameron Reddish is one of the most talented players in the 2018 class. He is already on the Syracuse radar, and visited over the weekend when they kicked off the 2014-15 basketball season.
”I really enjoyed Orange Madness,” Reddish said. “I loved the atmosphere up there in the Dome! My favorite part was the dunk contest. The dunks were very entertaining. I also liked how the crowd was cheering and was into it. My favorite dunk was B.J. Johnson’s 360 windmill.”
Another high point of the freshman standout’s trip was checking out the Syracuse basketball facilities, which are some of the best in the sport.
”Awe man, it was fantastic!” Reddish said. “The gym is really nice. I was able to watch them practice in there. It was a great opportunity. I feel they really encourage their players to go hard on every rep and to communicate and lift your teammates up.”
As with every recruit that visits Syracuse, Reddish had a chance to speak with the Orange coaching staff. That includes head coach Jim Boeheim, assistant coach Gerry McNamara and even assistant Mike Hopkins. All sides are working to develop a strong relationship with mutual interest all around.
”I spoke with almost all of the coaches,” Reddish said. “When I spoke with coach Boeheim, he was telling me to continue to work hard on and off the court. With coach McNamara, he said the same. He also told me they were very interested me. Coach Hop I didn’t speak to until on the way out.
”He asked how I was doing in school and I said I was doing well. We shook hands and that was it.”
The visit was so good, Reddish said Syracuse is his number one school even without an offer. Reddish is a 6-foot-5 point guard who is still growing. His length and frame would be an ideal fit for the zone and their offensive system.
