Syracuse always has talented players on their campus for their annual elite camp. The camp itself is on Sunday, August 28th, but some players arrive on Saturday. Here is a list of the most notable visitors according to CuseNation.com sources.
Mohamed Bamba is the number two player in the entire 2017 class. The elite, five-star center prospect runs the floor well, is a natural shot blocker and has great length and athleticism. Syracuse getting him on campus is huge for their chances to land the coveted prospect.
Quade Green has been Syracuse's top point guard target for quite some time. The Orange have recruited him as hard as anyone and he has visited the campus multiple times. Over the summer, both Kentucky and Duke offered and he visited the Blue Devils. Returning to the Syracuse campus is a good sign for where they stand.
One of the top players in the 2018 class, Jalen Smith is a gifted power forward. He is a physical specimen that seems to fit well with what Syracuse looks for in their front court players. Smith already holds an offer for the Orange and is one of their top 2018 targets.
Another five-star prospect who has been on Syracuse's radar for some time, Nazreon Reid is attending the elite camp. Syracuse is among the schools prioritizing the talented center. He is extremely athletic and can impact the game on both ends.
Jahvon Quinerly is a four-star point guard and a top 35 player in the class. He has a bunch of offers and hails from New Jersey. Quinerly has good size and a lot of interest in the Orange. An offer would make Syracuse one of his top options.
Robby Carmody is a top 100, four-star shooting guard in the 2018 class from Pennsylvania. He already holds an impressive offer list that includes Louisville, Michigan, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Xavier and others. He does not have one from Syracuse yet, but the camp is a chance for him to snag one.
Nate Roberts is a power forward prospect from Maryland who Syracuse likes. He has length, runs the floor well, and fits the mold of Syracuse power forwards. Keep an eye on him.
Atiba Taylor is a point guard with the size Syracuse likes for the position at 6-foot-4. The New Jersey talent holds offers from Rutgers and Seton Hall, and is also receiving interest from Villanova.
Raheem Solomon is a combo-guard from Connecticut. He has solid size and is on Syracuse's radar for 2018, though he does not yet hold an offer.
Mika Adams-Woods is a local prospect that attends Bishop Ludden High. He already holds offers from George Washington, Georgia Tech and East Carolina. Syracuse likes his game, and a strong camp performance would only push him further up their board.
A shooting guard from Staten Island, Malik Martin has size and is a talented athlete. He flourishes in transition, and seems to be a solid fit for what Syracuse likes in their guards. Martin already holds an offer from Rhode Island.
Cole Swider is a talented forward from Rhode Island. He already holds a handful of offers, including Boston College, Creighton, DePaul, UMass and New Hampshire. He could play small or power forward at the next level, depending on how his body develops.
A 6-foot-10, 250-pound center originally from Jamaica, Kofi Cockburn is on the radar of several high major programs. Syracuse is getting involved early. He attends Christ the King in Middle Village (N.Y.). Keep an eye on him as a potential priority target in 2019.
Isaiah Stewart has the potential to be one of the best players in the 2019 class. He is already firmly on Syracuse's radar, and it would not surprise if they prioritize him going forward.
Khalif Battle is the younger brother of Syracuse freshman Tyus Battle. Khalif already holds an offer from Rutgers. Should Syracuse pursue hard, they would be one of the top options for the younger Battle.null
