Late Friday night, NunesMagician.com learned that Syracuse has extended an offer to 2016 guard Kevin Huerter. However, the scholarship offer isn't good until the 2017 season, which would require Huerter to attend a year of prep school before stepping on the Syracuse University campus.

Huerter, a 6-5 combo guard from Shenendehowa (NY), first started receiving interest from the Orange a few months ago. The Orange staff has remained in contact with Huerter, and now have extended an offer.
This past season, Huerter led Shenendehowa to a perfect 25-0 record and the NYSPHSAA Class AA state title.
The junior guard holds offers from Notre Dame, Syracuse (2017), Baylor, Texas Tech, Penn State, Miami, Maryland, Marquette, Rice, Xavier, George Washington, among others, according to Verbal Commits.
2016 5-star guard Tyus Battle will officially visit Syracuse later this month, and 2016 4-star guard Alterique Gilbert recently named the Orange in his final 5 schools. Syracuse also has 2017 offers out to Jordan Tucker, Mohammed Bamba and Trevon Duval.
Huerter has reportedly considered attending prep school for one season post-high-school graduation. If he chooses to do so, there will be a spot waiting for him on the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team.
