Syracuse watches Taurean Thompson

One day after defeating Elon, coach Autry traveled to watch 2016 target Taurean Thompson.

Less than 24 hours after defeating Elon and improving to 3-0, Syracuse assistant Adrian Autry hit the road to watch 2016 target Taurean Thompson.

"Syracuse and Seton Hall are the only two recruiting him the hardest right now," his mother, Sherese Piper told CuseNation.com. "He hasn't committed yet."

With coach Autry watching, Thompson finished with 9 points and 12 rebounds as Brewster Academy improved to 6-0. 

So far this season, the 6-foot-10 big-man is averaging 14 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. 

On November 11th, he finished with a season-high 16 rebounds in Brewster's 105-81 victory over Redemption Christian.

If he chooses Syracuse, Thompson would join Tyus Battle and Matthew Moyer in what is already a very talented recruiting class. 

As of right now, the Orange don't have a scholarship available for Taurean, which could be the reason the Orange haven't received a commitment yet. Syracuse does expect to regain a scholarship from the NCAA, but are still awaiting the decision from their appeal.

Thompson would provide much needed depth in the frontcourt. His ability to run the floor and rebound are two assets that could lead to early playing time.

North Carolina State also watched Thompson today and Pittsburgh recently offered, according to his mother.
