Offer from Syracuse! #Orange— Michael Porter Jr. (@m1chael_porter) June 15, 2015
The offer comes as no surprise. His interest, however, has a unique twist. Three weeks ago, Porter Jr. hadn't heard from Syracuse, or showed any interest in the Orange. While particpating at the 5th annual Mary Kline Classic in May, Porter Jr. and 2016 commit Matthew Moyer bonded. That bond eventually led to a phone call from Michael to Syracuse Orange assistant coach Gerry McNamara, who reassured SU's interest.
The 5-star forward plays his AAU ball for MOKAN Elite (KS). Through 14 games played, he's averaging 17.4 points and 7.0 rebounds. MOKAN is currently 12-5 and qualified for Peach Jam.
