Syracuse basketball recruit Quincy Guerrier includes Orange in final three

It’s pronounced Gare-ee-er.


The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball program already received news on the recruiting front this week when 2019 big man John Bol Ajak announced his commitment to SU. But last night, Quincy Guerrier trimmed his recruitment down to three schools and Syracuse made the cut along with Oregon and Illinois.

Guerrier is a 6-foot-7 wing out of Thetford Academy in Quebec. He visited Oregon in the beginning of September and will take another official to Illinois this upcoming weekend. Guerrier was on his Syracuse official during the weekend of the Syracuse-UConn football game. Of his visit, Guerrier had this to say to Adam Zagoria:

“To be honest, I enjoyed my visit,” he said. “I had a good relationship with the coaches and the players. I knew some players because they had Oshae, Tyus, Buddy and Howard Washington. I feel comfortable right now with Syracuse.”

He also noted that he feels a stronger connection to the players at Syracuse than Oregon, noting his relationship was better with guys at SU. That doesn’t necessarily mean Syracuse is a shoo-in, but it does bode well for the Orange to land his services.

It remains possible that Guerrier could enroll as early as the spring semester (2019) and whether he redshirts or not, Syracuse does have an open scholarship available.

Guerrier will close in on a decision in the ensuing weeks after his Illinois visit. For what it’s worth, he was the (Red Team) MVP of the 2018 BioSteel All Canadian Game, an honor shared with current Syracuse player Oshae Brissett.

Syracuse is truly in a battle with Oregon for Canada’s College Team...
