Thorpe picked Syracuse over his other finalist, Pittsburgh. He also received interest from Seton Hall among others. Thorpe started his college career with Penn State, where he spent his first two years. He then transferred to South Florida, where he played last season after sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
Thorpe averaged 15.1 points and 4.7 assists per game for the Bulls. He gives Syracuse a 6-foot-4 guard who can play either spot in the backcourt. He is the final scholarship for Syracuse's 2017 roster.
