Syracuse basketball may be focused on closing the 2017 class strong, but that does not mean they do not have an eye on the 2018 and 2019 cycles. With the assistants on the road, Adrian Autry was up in Canada on Wednesday to check out 2019 star Quincy Guerrier.
Guerrier said the result of the visit was an offer.
"(They like) my shooting ability," Guerrier said. "He said that I'm very talented and I've got to work on my game very day."
Syracuse has had success with Canadian prospects in recent years. Players such as Kris Joseph and Tyler Ennis have thrived with the Orange. Two of the top players in Canada in 2017 are already signed with SU as well in forward Oshae Brissett and transplanted point guard Howard Washington.
That success has the attention of top Canadian prospects such as Guerrier, who says he is attracted to the offensive and defensive system that head coach Jim Boeheim and the Orange utilize.
Guerrier is a shooting guard prospect who stands 6-foot-7. That length combined with his outside shooting make him a highly touted prospect. In fact, he already holds a number of offers from major conference programs.
They include Florida, Memphis, Oklahoma, Oregon, Seton Hall and Washington State in addition to Syracuse.
