Syracuse Women's Basketball Prioritizing an Elite 2018 Versatile Forward

Syracuse women's basketball has their sights set on an elite 2018 forward. Details inside.

The Syracuse Orange women's basketball has enjoyed strong recruiting since Quentin Hillsman took the job. They are looking to continue that trend in the 2018 class and have targeted one of the elite players. 

Fresh Meadows (N.Y.) St. Francis Prep star forward Emily Engstler is one of Syracuse's top targets in the 2018 cycle. Assistant Tammi Reiss spent Thursday night conducting an in-home visit with the talented prospect, according to a source. 

Engstler is a versatile prospect who stands at 6-foot-1, giving her enough size to play inside but with the offensive game to make plays on the perimeter. She is physical, plays through contact, handles the ball well and is an affective outside shooter.

Give that skill set, Engstler projects as a small forward or stretch power forward. With her length and athleticism combined with her physical nature, she fits perfectly with Syracuse's system on both ends of the floor.
