A source close to the Syracuse basketball program indicated head coach Jim Boeheim loves his skills and would love to land him early in the recruiting process.
"I just want to go to a place where I can come in and play a lot as a freshman," said Devendorf who initially committed to Michigan State but backed off of that decision a month ago. "I want to be able to contribute as a freshman."
Last year as a junior at Central High School, Devendorf averaged 31 points, six rebounds, and five assists. Eric seems to thrive in an uptempo type of offense.
"I just want to see what everyone has to say before I make a decision," said Devendorf, who competed this past weekend at the Spiece Tournament in Indiana.
Devendorf has already committed to taking an unofficial visit to Syracuse University on June 11th. Before he takes his trip to the Syracuse campus, Eric will also visit Billy Donovan's Florida program on May 22nd. This is also expected to be an unofficial visit. Devendorf has already taken visits to Michigan and Michigan State.
"I am also considering North Carolina State," Devendorf said.
Eric currently has a 2.6 GPA and has landed a 17 on his ACT. He would like to sign a letter of intent this Fall.
