Three-star Canadian power forward Oshae Brissett will receive a visit from Syracuse basketball on Tuesday, a source tells CuseNation.com. Brissett played for Findlay Prep in Nevada last season. The visit will be from head coach Jim Boeheim and assistant Adrian Autry.
Brissett is a 6-foot-7, three-star power forward prospect ranked as the 19th best player at his position in the 2017 class. Syracuse extended an offer back in July. His primary recruiter with the Orange is coach Autry.
Syracuse is definitely looking for front court help in the 2017 class as they lose Dajuan Coleman and Tyler Roberson to graduation, and are likely to lose Tyler Lydon to an early departure for the NBA. Matthew Moyer and Taurean Thompson will be back for their sophomore campaigns, but there are still plenty of minutes available for a true freshman.
Brissett currently holds other offers from Arizona State, Cal, Maryland, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, UNLV, Utah and USC among others. Syracuse has done well recruiting Canadian prospects in recent years, and Brissett could be their latest example should they land him.
A physical forward, Brissett has skill, athleticism, moves well in the open floor and possesses the length that would seem to fit perfectly within the Orange system on both ends of the floor.
Syracuse spending time to visit him during the open recruiting period shows that their interest is real and that they feel the 6-foot-7 forward would be a good fit within their program.
