Syracuse is set to have a big weekend of recruiting, according to Ben Sigel of Sigel is reporting class of 2017 targets Jordan Tucker, Hamidou Diallo, and Quade Green will be on campus starting Friday.

Jordan Tucker has told multiple times he has high interest in Syracuse. Tucker is a wing who can shoot and score. He has been on the Orange campus before and could fill a need at small forward in the 2017 class.

Hamidou Diallo remains "very interested" in SU, per a source. His recruitment has taken off of late, picking up offers from Duke and Kentucky. Syracuse loves Diallo's game and has been recruiting him hard for some time.

Quade Green will be making his fifth visit to the campus. The four-star point guard has been excellent in the first two sessions of the EYBL, racking up assists at a big time clip. Over this past weekend, he had double digit assists in all four of his games while turning it over three times or less in each game. He remains Syracuse's top point guard target in 2017.

It should be noted that all of these players have visited campus previously and the Orange are right in the thick of things in all of their college plans.

According to Scout, Tucker is also interested in Villanova, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Xavier to name a few. For Diallo, the Orange will have to beat out everybody, competing with the likes of Connecticut, Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, and Louisville among essentially every college program in the country. Quade Green is also a tough get, with Maryland, Louisville, Villanova, and Xavier also on his recruitment.

Here are some highlights to see these guys in action:
