Midway through last week, Quade Green told CuseNation.com that he, and teammate Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, would unofficially visit Syracuse this weekend. Cosby-Roundtree took a rain-check, but Green made the trip to Central New York.
Late last week, Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins called 6-foot-8 power forward Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree and asked him to cancel his visit this weekend. Odd, right? The reason: the coaching staff wanted Dhamir's family to see the campus, facilities and discuss the future together.
"Coach Hop called me earlier this week," Cosby-Roundtree told CuseNation.com, "They wanted me to come on a different date with my family."
DCR says he hasn't rescheduled his visit yet, but visiting Syracuse remains a priority.
Despite Cosby-Roundtree not making the trip, Quade Green told CuseNation.com he had a "great" visit. Multiple Syracuse fans requested pictures at the LSU-SU football game, which he agreed to.
"I liked it a lot," Green said Saturday night. The Neumann-Goretti product arrived on Saturday morning, toured the campus, facilities and had a sit-down meeting with coach Boeheim.
"It's a beautiful campus," Green said via text message.
The Orange coaching staff have made Quade the priority point guard target in the 2017 class. Despite getting heavily involved with Trevon Duval, they have backed off due to his recent transfer to Advanced Prep International.
This was the second time Quade Green was on campus in the past month. He attended the Syracuse Elite Camp at the end of August, as well. In a recent interview with CuseNation.com, the 4-star guard said he will cut his list of schools "soon," and expects the Orange to make the cut.
He plans on visiting again this winter for a basketball game.
The Orange have made quite the first impression.
