2017 small forward Andre Rafus remains high on Syracuse, wants to visit again

2017 four-star forward Andre Rafus remains interested in Syracuse, would like to visit in near future.

Andre Rafus, a talented 2017 small forward, has interest from 20+ D-I schools, including Syracuse. The interest is mutual. 

Rafus told CuseNation.com on Wednesday evening that he remains very interested in Syracuse and would like to visit again. SU was among a few schools that watched him play a few weeks ago.

The 6-foot-9 forward also told CuseNation.com he's planning on visiting Arizona State, KansasSeton Hall, UNLV and USC.

The Orange have not yet offered Rafus, but that doesn't affect his interest level in the program. 

Before the season, he transferred to Roselle Catholic (NJ), a school in which Syracuse has a great relationship with. "I chose Roselle because of coach Boff," he said. "I trust coach Boff and I know he'll make me a better player."

UNLV was the first school to offer him a scholarship, which took place his freshman year of high school.

Syracuse first contacted Rafus in July 2015. He told CuseNation.com that coach Hopkins had reached out and extended an invitation to the elite camp. 

"They contacted me before I transferred," Rafus told CuseNation.com back in August. "I can see myself playing there."

"I really like their style of play," he said when asked about the Orange.

During his visit to SU during the elite camp in August, Andre said he loved the campus and that it was a 'great visit.' 

Rafus is averaging 13.1 points per game for Roselle Catholic, who is 7-2 on the season.
