So says CBSSports.com's Jeff Borzello (or as Syracuse.com refers to him at one point, Brozello).
Bro-zello did some breaking down of the 2012 basketball recruiting classes and the Orange look pretty good considering they've only got two guys coming in.
In the Big East, he ranks Syracuse No. 2 behind the Providence Friars. Impressive for the Friars indeed. For those concerned that Pitt was going to remain off the radar need not do so as they've got the No. 3 class coming in, followed by St. John's and Villanova. Tough year for New Jersey as Seton Hall and Rutgers bring up the rear, with the Knights bringing in one player.
In case you're wondering, the Orange would have been ranked No. 3 in the ACC behind, you guessed it, North Carolina and Duke.
Nationally, it's Kentucky in the top spot of course, with Nerlens Noel and Archie Goodwin leading the way. UCLA, Arizona, NC State and Baylor follow them (Wolfpack gonna be much better next time we see them). The Orange clock in at No. 14 overall, just ahead of Maryland and Kansas.
Getting Coleman to stay home in Upstate New York was huge for Jim Boeheim, but the versatile and athletic Grant will be an asset at both ends of the floor.
So what are these two players ranked to get us here? DaJuan Coleman is slotted in the 16th overall spot (five stars) while Jerami Grant is No. 37 overall (four stars).
