Syracuse basketball has one scholarship left for the 2017-18 season, and have their eyes set on a graduate transfer guard to fill that spot. Geno Thorpe, who spent time at Penn State and South Florida, will visit the Orange on Thursday and Friday, a source confirmed to Scout. The Post-Standard first reported the news.
Thorpe is a combo-guard who is listed at 6-foot-4. He led USF in scoring and assists last season averaging 15.1 points and 4.6 assists per game. Thorpe is also a strong outside shooter, something Syracuse needs to add for the upcoming season, as he hit 37.5% of his shots from beyond the arc for the Bulls.
Down to Syracuse and Pittsburgh, Thorpe has already visited the Panthers. Pitt is his hometown school being a native of the city. Originally, Thorpe signed with Penn State out of high school. After two years there, he transferred to South Florida. Now Thorpe is back on the market again looking to round out his college career with a contender.
