The high school basketball season is under way and plenty of Syracuse Orange recruits are starting to put together big-time performances. A few of the recruits have put together some monster games for their high schools.

Quade Green - Point Guard

Green is a 6-foot point guard out of Philadelphia. He has been on Syracuse's radar for a while. He attends Neumann-Goretti, the same high school that produced the likes of Scoop Jardine, Rick Jackson, and current Syracuse WR Jamal Custis. Green's teammate Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, also holds an offer from the Orange.

Kevin Knox - Small Forward

Knox is an athletic freak at small forward. At 6-foot 7 he is a very versatile player. He can rebound the ball and get out in transition, finish around the rim, and also has the ability to knock down a jump shot. Knox holds offers from the likes of Duke, North Carolina, and Florida St. He will be a tough kid to get to commit, but he has expressed interest in the Orange.

Tyus Battle - Combo Guard

Tyus Battle, 2016 signee, had a solid outing in his first game of the season. Battle is still trying to recover from the foot injury, that side lined him for much of last season. Battle is motivated for a big season as his recruiting ratings dropped, due to injury, he is trying to prove the doubters wrong.

Jahvon Quinerly - Point Guard

Qunierly, is a crafty point guard from New Jersey. His recruitment has been relatively quiet thus far, but it will soon pick up as he gets older. He attended Orange Madness, and was at the St. John's game last week. Quinerly is as smooth as they come at the point and can do it all.

Naz Reid - Power Forward Andre Rafus- Small Forward

Both Rafus and Reid are big time recruits that play at Roselle Catholic. Reid is a big time power forward in the class of 2018. Reid holds offers from UConn, Villanova, and Louisville. Rafus holds offers from the likes of UConn, Georgetown, and UCLA. He is an athletic lefty, with range from 3.

Also, another high school basketball player had a big game Friday, as Jimmy Boeheim, Coach Boeheim's son, scored 39 points in a win over Norwich.
