Last week the Syracuse Orange coaching staff hosted its elite basketball camp where top talent comes to compete. There were a mix of players who have already committed to Syracuse, who have been offered or who are still in the hunt for a scholarship. We highlight the players below:
2016 Class: Tyus Battle, Matthew Moyer
Tyus Battle (@kidmamba23): Battle committed to Syracuse back in July. By now, Syracuse fans are aware of Battle and what he brings to the table.
Matthew Moyer (@matthewmoyer13): Moyer committed to Syracuse this time last year after the Elite Camp. Since then, Moyer has probably been Syracuse's biggest advocate and unofficial recruiter.
2017 Class: Lonnie Walker, Quade Green, Andre Rafus, Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, Malik Zachery
Lonnie Walker (@lonniewalker_4): Walker is a long, athletic combo guard with a nice shooting stroke. From Reading, PA, Walker is considered the best player in his state for the 2017 class and is ranked 19th in the ESPN 60. He has offers from Indiana, UCLA, Villanova and Oregon.
Quade Green (@Q_Green1): Green attends Neumann-Goretti in Philadelphia. If that sounds familiar, it's because that's the same high school that produced Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson. Green is an intriguing player as he is only 5-foot-11 but does a lot of things well on the court. Philadelphia is a recruiting hotbed for Syracuse, but the 44th best player in the ESPN 60 holds 31 offers from schools like Louisville, Michigan State, Maryland, Temple and Villanova to name a few.
Andre Rafus (@cantstoprafus): Rafus is a 6-foot-9 forward from Baltimore. Sound somewhat familiar? Rafus is a versatile forward with great athleticism who can step out and make shots. Rafus holds offers from Connecticut, St. John's, Georgetown and Dayton, amongst others.
Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree: Cosby-Roundtree is a 6-foot-8 forward who is teammates with Quade Green at Neumann-Goretti. Cosby-Roundtree has offers from La Salle, Penn State, Rider, St. Joseph's, Temple and Villanova just offered him earlier this month.
Malik Zachery (@MalikGOHAMZach): The local kid was in attendance this weekend and went toe-to-toe with Quade Green. Zachery is transferring to St. Benedict's -- the same prep school Tyler Ennis attended -- in New Jersey this year, but is from the Syracuse area. Zachery holds an offer from Canisius and will garner more attention by playing prep ball.
2018 Class: Nazreon Reid, Louis King, Jahvon Quinerly
Nazreon Reid (@nazreon): Naz Reid is a 6-foot-9 power forward out of New Jersey who loves to dunk everything. Reid attends Roselle Catholic, the same high school that current Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson attended. He's one of the top players in his class and has already received offers from the likes of Kansas, Iowa, Maryland, Seton Hall and St. John's.
Louis King: King is teammates with Naz Reid at Roselle Catholic and actually holds an offer from Syracuse already. Syracuse was King's first major division I scholarship look, but St. John's, Manhattan and VCU have also offered the 6-foot-6 small forward.
Jahvon Quinerly (@RealJahvonQ): Quinerly is a smooth point guard from Hackensack, NJ who plays AAU with Naz Reid. He's a highly skilled point guard with a picturesque shooting stroke. Villanova has offered Quinerly and St. John's has also shown interest.
