Syracuse had two of their priority targets on campus over the weekend. One of them was Canadian forward Oshae Brissett. Brissett is viewed as someone that can fit the program by being a versatile player who can play either forward spot at Syracuse. He has ideal length and a strong offensive skill set.
His visit on Saturday was checking out players who currently fit the Syracuse system at Orange Madness.
"It was great to see the love and support all the players get," Brissett said. "The gym wasn't halfway full and it was still loud."
Following Orange Madness, Brissett was able to see practice on Saturday. He called watching practice and meeting the team one of the best parts of his visit.
"Every player tells me how much they love being there," Brissett said. "(They love) being coached by Boeheim and the fans. Nothing bad to say about Syracuse.
"Hanging out with them was like hanging out with any one of my friends. It wasn't awkward. They're all cool."
During the rest of Saturday and into Sunday, Brissett spent a lot of time with the Syracuse coaching staff. He said the visit helped him get to know the coaches on a more personal level.
"(They were) telling me how I'd fit in perfectly with the system that they have going on," he said.
After his visit had concluded, Brissett tweeted that the weekend was "amazing." He says the reason he called it amazing was because of the atmosphere around campus.
A decision did not come on the trip, however. At least not a public one. Brissett says he still has "a lot to consider" regarding Syracuse and his recruitment. He officially visits Oregon this coming weekend. He says that is his last official.
Will a decision come shortly after that?
"Maybe," Brissett said. "I'm not sure."
