The Syracuse Orange have extended an offer to another recruit in the 2017 class. Guard Brandon Randolph of Westtown School (PA) nabbed an offer Tuesday morning after head coach Jim Boeheim watched him play AAU ball this weekend, per Scout.com.
Randolph's Scout profile lists him at 6-foot-5, 175 pounds, and he is the site's eleventh-ranked shooting guard in the class. Other schools that have offered Randolph include Louisville, Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia Tech and Kansas, among others, so he is certainly getting the attention of some high-profile basketball programs. Syracuse has the advantage of being closer to his hometown of Yonkers, N.Y. than other interested schools.
The Orange have already offered three other guards in the 2017 class: there's top-rated Trevon Duval who seems like a hard sell at the moment, another 4-star Quade Green, and Hamidou Diallo, who is rumored to be interested enough in Syracuse to consider reclassifying.
Initially, Randolph was an under-the-radar recruit, which could partly due to a leg injury that kept him out in early 2015, but he's picked up attention this season. He's athletic with good size, but what is most impressive is his clean, pure shooting ability. Check out his highlights:
