Big news for the Orange on the recruiting front.

NCAA Basketball: South Carolina State at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse basketball will officially welcome to new members to its family this week with the additions of Darius Bazley and Jalen Carey.

Bazley, a five-star prospect out of Ohio, will sign with the Orange on Wednesday morning. The news was first reported on Twitter via @IommiCuseFan.

Carey, a four-star point guard prospect out of New York City, will sign with the Orange on Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET, per Adam Zagoria.

Buddy Boeheim, the third Class of 2018 commit, has yet to announce when he will sign his National Letter of Intent.

Bazley is a Top 10 player in the 2018 class. He first committed to Ohio State, but had a change in heart after questioning whether the Buckeye program could get him to the next level as quickly as possible. He then fell in love with the Orange and committed to Jim Boeheim’s program shortly after.

Carey, a 6-foot-3 prospect, committed to the Orange back on October 4. He chose SU over UConn in a video produced by HoopMajor on Twitter.

Syracuse has the 14th-best class in the 2018 recruiting cycle, per 247Sports, and the 5th-best class in the ACC behind North Carolina, Notre Dame, Wake Forest and NC State.
