Syracuse basketball recruiting: Orange make cut for elite 2018 shooting guard

SU is in very good position for Prentiss Hubb.

Class of 2018 four-star shooting guard Prentiss Hubb has cut his list to six, and the Syracuse Orange are still in play.

Hubb, who is a Top 30 player according to 247Sports, cut his list to Syracuse, Virginia, Villanova, Notre Dame, Kansas and Maryland, he announced on Sunday.

Hubb attends Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC, where he averaged 13.9 points per game as a junior. He’s described as a very smooth scorer, and a lockdown perimeter defender, according to those who have seen him play live.

Hubb’s teammates this past season included three D-I commits — Chris Lykes (Miami), Myles Dread (Penn State) and Eddie Scott (Pennsylvania).

His length and size, at 6-foot-3, is appealing to Syracuse’s 2-3 zone.

He also had offers from Georgetown, Marquette, Xavier and Baylor, among many others.

There is no timetable for a decision, but Syracuse has found itself in good position moving forward.

For the Class of 2018, Syracuse now has offers out to: Prentiss Hubb, Jahvon Quinerly, Brandon Slater, A.J. Reeves, Robby Carmody, Cam Reddish, Louis King, Hameir Wright, Khalid Moore, Cole Swider, Simi Shittu, Jalen Smith, Naz Reid, David Duke and Nate Roberts.
