Late Monday afternoon, Syracuse extended an offer to 2017 4-star point guard Quade Green.
ESPN ranks Green as the No. 7 point guard in the class, and 43rd overall.
He told NunesMagician.com that Coach McNamara was the one who extended the offer yesterday. It was the first time he had talked with the SU coaches, however Hopkins and McNamara had previously watched him play.
When asked if the recent sanctions play a factor in his interest with the Orange, Quade replied "No, not at all."
Green also said he's always had interest in Syracuse, but never expected to get an offer, "I didn't think I was going to get a call. I was super excited when I got it."
He told NunesMagician.com he will visit Syracuse. The date is to be determined.
The Neumann-Goretti High School guard holds offers from La Salle, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan State, Penn State, Providence, Rhode Island, Syracuse, Temple, USC, Villanova and Xavier.
Former Syracuse Orange standouts Rick Jackson and Scoop Jardine are both graduates of Neumann-Goretti High School. The Orange have had great success recruiting the Philadelphia area in the past, including Rakeem Christmas and Dion Waiters.
Green plays AAU basketball in the Under Armour circuit for WE R1. The 5-11 guard is averaging 15.4 points and 3.1 assists per game. Quade shares time with Trevon Duval, who is SU's top target in the 2017 class.
Syracuse also offered 2017 5-star forward Michael Porter Jr. yesterday.
The Orange have now offered seven 2017 targets:
|Mohammed Bamba||Center||5-star||6-10, 250||Westtown School (PA)|
|Trevon Duval||Point Guard||5-star||6-2, 183||St. Benedict's Prep (NJ)|
|Quade Green||Point Guard||4-star||5-11, 155||Neumann-Goretti (PA)|
|Kevin Huerter||Shooting Guard||4-star||6-5, 170||Shenendehowa Central (NY)|
|Michael Porter Jr.||Small Forward||5-star||6-9, 190||Father Tolton Catholic (MO)|
|Nicholas Richards||Center||5-star||6-11, 250||The Patrick School (NJ)|
|Jordan Tucker||Small Forward||5-star||6-7, 190||Archbishop Stepinac (NY)|
Monday was the first day college coaches were allowed direct contact with class of 2017 recruits. It's safe to say Syracuse made quite an impact on the recruiting trail.
