Thursday afternoon, Adam Zagoria broke the news that 2016 4-star guard Kevin Huerter is down to 8 schools.
Despite only offering the 6-foot-6 combo-guard a 2017 scholarship, Syracuse remained in the mix for quite a while. In the beginning of the summer, it looked as if the Orange would land a visit from Huerter and his family. When CuseNation.com reached out to the Shenendehowa product last week, we got a much different vibe.
Kevin told CuseNation.com he had no intentions, or plans, of visiting Syracuse and was currently setting up 2016 visits. This came just a week-or-so after reports indicated that Syracuse were among the schools working the hardest in his recruitment.
“If Syracuse had a 2016 scholarship available, they would be offering it to Kevin,” Hart told SNY.tv. “And they would be right there. He has an offer for 2017 from Syracuse. [Mike] Hopkins and Gerry McNamara actually were on him earlier than most. He’s staying 2016 so they are out.”
