While many of us were shooting off fireworks this Fourth of July weekend, Syracuse basketball was trying to show Nebraska fifth-year transfer Andrew White III the fireworks he could make on the court if he chooses to play for theOrange.
White visited Upstate NY over the weekend and talked about his visit with Syracuse.com's Mike Waters. White stated he had a good visit with his parents and that the coaches "seem to have a pretty good playing situation," which seems to hint that he liked what the coaches told him about possible playing time.
He also mentioned that assistant coach Adrian Autry is in charge of his recruitment and then conveyed that he thinks the Syracuse staff is a good one overall.
The former Nebraska guard would be a great pickup for the Orange, who could really benefit from a deep-shot threat. White, who originally attended Kansas before transferring to Nebraska, is also getting interest from Louisville, VCU and Cincinnati.
Louisville, the biggest name of the three, did recruit White out of high school and is not far from his home state of Virginia. However, the looming possibility of a punishment from the NCAA might make Syracuse a more attractive option for Andrew. Cardinals Head Coach Rick Pitino also told ESPN Louisville that it was unlikely they would add anyone else to their 2016-17 roster.
