Could another SU prospect potentially be back in play for 2017?

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

After Class of 2018 prospect Eric Ayala told Corey Evans of Rivals.com that he was still considering reclassifying to the Class of 2017, elite forward Hameir Wright could be doing the same thing.

Wright, a four-star Albany product, told ESPN that he hasn’t closed the door on reclassifying to 2018, but the plan is to still take a year at prep school.

Kansas, Michigan State, Miami, Syracuse, Villanova, Maryland and UCLA are all involved with Wright. He does, however, have high interest in the Orange.

He’s been on Syracuse’s campus for unofficial visits, and Jim Boeheim has see plenty of his game while scouting the Albany City Rocks over the years. Wright now plays for the PSA Cardinals on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Syracuse has three open scholarships for next season, and still has a view needs in regards to the roster.

Wright is a scoring forward that is poised for the big moment, his former AAU coach Jimmy Hart told TNIAAM while he still coached him. “He handles himself really, really well.

If Wright were to reclassify and commit to Syracuse, he’d be competing with Matt Moyer and Oshae Brissett for minutes at small forward this upcoming season.
