SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Class of 2017 three-star power forward Oshae Brissett announced via Twitter on Monday that Syracuse had extended a scholarship offer. CuseNation.com caught up with him Monday evening.
"Coach Autry called me and offered the scholarship," he said. "I've been talking to the assistants for a while now and they told me they'd be coming out to my games."
Brissett, who recently attended Findlay Prep in Nevada, is a native of Toronto. He has decided to transfer for his senior year, but he still doesn't know where, he told CuseNation.com.
Oshae said he and Autry didn't have an in-depth conversation yet about how Syracuse views him, but he said that will likely come soon. They did, however, talk about seeing the campus sooner rather than later, although there isn't a timetable for a visit.
"There's no timetable for my recruitment," he said. "I definitely would like to visit though. I've always liked Syracuse. This is just a bonus they like me back," he joked.
What is Brissett's game like?
"I can score well around the rim with my athleticism and length. I can guard multiple positions, too. I need to work on a more reliable jumper and my ball-handling, though. I'm 6-foot-8, 200 pounds and use that to my advantage."
He said he hasn't narrowed anything in his recruitment. He remains interested in all the schools that keep up with him.
Oshae holds offers from USC, Memphis, Arizona, Arizona State, Maryland, Memphis, UCLA, Oklahoma, Syracuse and Oregon.
