SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After John Gillon committed to Syracuse earlier today, the scholarship situation became more tricky heading into next season. CuseNation.com breaks it down, including who SU could target to fill the open scholarships.
2016-17 projected scholarships:
- Dajuan Coleman
- John Gillon
- Tyler Roberson
- Tyler Lydon
- Frank Howard
- Paschal Chukwu
- Tyus Battle
- Matthew Moyer
Malachi Richardson has until May 25 to return to Syracuse for his sophomore season. If he does return, the Orange will have two open scholarships heading into next season.
Other than Taurean Thompson, who remains the top remaining target for the Orange, SU has reached out to Kalif Young, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound center from Canada. Young has reportedly scheduled three official visits to Alabama, Marquette and Providence. It is unknown if he is still open to more schools, but the Orange might find itself searching for another big if Thompson continues to stall.
