Over the past few months, 2016 combo-guard Kevin Huerter's recruitment has picked up, to say the least. His recent offers consist of the Syracuse Orange, Notre Dame, Marquette, Iowa, Florida State, Maryland, among others.

All of Huerter's offers begin in the 2016-17 season, expect SU's. Jim Boeheim extended an offer to Huerter under one condition: that he attends prep school for one season post-high-school graduationTom Huerter, Kevin's father, says that prep school is an option, according to Syracuse.com.

"Prep school is an option we've been weighing for Kevin," Huerter told Mike Waters.

Even before the Orange extended an offer, prep school has been under consideration for the Huerter family. Kevin's older brother, Thomas Jr., is currently deciding between New Hampton Prep, Cheshire Academy and Phillips Andover Academy, writes Waters.

Schools have also discussed the possibility of Huerter redshirting his 2016 season, Huerter said.

Prep school would mature Kevin bother physically and mentally, his father says. It would be a win-win for both Syracuse and Huerter, who has grown 4 inches in the past year.

Through the first three EYBL sessions, Huerter is averaging 12.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. The Albany City Rocks are currently 8-4.
