Matthew Moyer to sign National LOI on Wednesday

Matthew Moyer will finally make his Syracuse pledge official this week.

Matthew Moyer has been committed to Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange men's basketball program for over a year now. On Wednesday, Moyer will make that official.

"I'm super excited," Moyer told 

The 4-star forward confirmed earlier today that he will sign his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday at his new school, South Kent. 

"I'll be signing at South Kent," Matt said via text message. He also said his parents will make the trip from Ohio to celebrate the achievement. 

After an impressive month of July in 2014, Moyer's recruitment took off. When the Syracuse coaching staff reached out and invited him to the elite camp the next month, he couldn't wait to see the campus.

Matt described Syracuse as home, saying he knew right away he wanted to attend Syracuse -- he just needed an offer.

Well, after an impressive showing at the elite camp, coach Boeheim called the 6-foot-8 forward into his office and officially offered him a scholarship. He told the podcast last month that he was hearing from a plethora of top programs. However, just one day after the camp, and after talking with his parents, Moyer verbally committed to the Orange, giving SU their first 2016 commitment. 

Over the past year, the Ohio native has stuck with Syracuse through thick and thin. He never once doubted his commitment during the NCAA sanctions, even when other schools continued to press him. 

Not only has Moyer remained loyal to the Orange, he's helped improve their roster as well. It has been duly noted that through daily conversations, text messages and tweets, Matthew helped secure Tyus Battle's commitment.

Moyer is a member of the National Honor Society, as well.

He transferred to South Kent (CT) for his senior year to help make the adjustment to Syracuse next year easier on both himself, and his family. 

Matt told me last winter, "Well, my answer is clear. I'm not going anywhere. I don't care what allegations there are. I told myself, coach Boeheim and the university I'm coming and that's not changing!" 

Syracuse is getting a good one, a really good one.
