Why Syracuse didn't recruit Jimmer Fredette; or, de-mythifying the Jimmer |
When Fredette started to blossom in high school, Syracuse already had commitments from two guards in his class. Jonny Flynn and Scoop Jardine. The Syracuse coaches didn't miss on Fredette. They were very aware of him. But not only did Syracuse not have room for a similar ball-dominating, shot-taking guard, but Fredette have been nuts to sign with SU.
