2016 big man Taurean Thompson expected to visit Syracuse this weekend

Taurean Thompson expected to visit Syracuse this weekend.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Class of 2016 big man Taurean Thompson is expected to take an unofficial visit to Syracuse this weekend, according to a source. This will be his second time visiting SU.

Taurean has taken official visits to Syracuse, Connecticut, Seton Hall and Xavier. He has one remaining.

Here is Scout.com's breakdown of Thompson as a player:

Thompson is a player whose best basketball is clearly ahead of him. He has long arms, runs the floor extremely well, and also can step out and make a 15-foot jumper. He absolutely has to get stronger, but that should come in college. Also he is limited in terms of his basketball experience, so he has some rawness to his game, but the upside is through the roof.

He would join 2016 signee Matthew Moyer, along with 2017 targets Hamidou Diallo, Quade Green and Jordan Tucker this weekend at Syracuse.

With another official visit looming, this would be a great opportunity for the Orange to make one final push at Thompson, who remains a priority target.
