One of Syracuse’s most coveted recruits in the Class of 2017 is starting to get looks from some of the major blue blood programs in College Basketball.

On Tuesday it was reported by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello that Duke offered 2017 point guard Quade Green:

Green is a priority target for the Syracuse Orange, who has been recruiting the Philadelphia native for two years. Green has made multiple visits to the Syracuse campus and has shown mutual interest in the Orange.

Green recently rose in the Class of 2017 ESPN rankings, from No. 41 to No. 22. This is just one of the many reasons why Green’s recruitment has taken off over the past couple of weeks.

Borzello also tweeted this out about Green on Tuesday:

Syracuse will now have their work cut out for them if they want to land Green’s services.

Green is a 5-foot-10 game-managing point guard. He has great court vision and is one of the best passers in the the Class of 2017. He possesses a good jump shot and can catch and shoot or put the ball on the floor and create his own shot. Green has tremendous hands and defensive awareness, which should make up for his lack of size in the SU zone.

FYI, Green attends Neumann-Goretti, the same school that produced former Syracuse stars Scoop Jardine and Rick Jackson.
