SU is going after some elite talent for 2022.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball coaching staff has their sights on some big-time prospects in the 2022 class — and they continue to add to the list.

Earlier on Wednesday, Kamari Lands, a four-star small forward out of Indiana, announced on Twitter that he’s received a scholarship offer from Syracuse.

Lands, a 6-foot-7 wing, attends La Lumiere School — one of the best prep schools in the country.

247Sports ranks Lands as the nation’s 27th-best player, and 7th-best small forward. ESPN ranks the prospect as the 23rd-best player in the class, and 5th-best at his position.

Lands now holds offers from Syracuse, Xavier, Miami (OH), DePaul and Marquette. He’s also heard from Georgetown, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Texas Tech and Air Force, among others, this week. Michigan State has expressed interest in the past, as well.

Kamari joins a few other class of 2022 small forwards that have received an offer from Syracuse this week: Five-star Jarace Walker and four-star Ty Rodgers are the others.

Lands offers an elite level of athleticism. As a freshman, he didn’t see much playing time. He sat behind then-target Isaiah Stewart and Keion Brooks Jr. — both five-star talents. But he grew into a bigger role going into his sophomore year at La Lumiere, and major colleges are beginning to take note.

Syracuse holds one commitment in the 2022 class so far: five-star point guard Dior Johnson.
