ECU Transfer Elijah Hughes Visiting Syracuse Wednesday

Transfer guard Elijah Hughes will be on the Syracuse campus Wednesday and Thursday this week.

When reports emerged of mutual interest between Elijah Hughes and Syracuse, the reported date is Hughes visit to SU was May 16-18. That is not the case, however. 

A source tells Scout that Hughes will visit Wednesday, May 10th through Thursday, May 11th. 

Hughes is a talented, versatile 6-foot-6 wing prospect who can play shooting guard or small forward. He is a former high school teammate of current Orange player Matthew Moyer. He signed with East Carolina out of high school, but is leaving the Pirates after one season.

Hughes will sit out the 2017-18 season and have three years of eligibility remaining. With ECU, he played in 25 games as a true freshman, averaging 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.
