5-Star PG Tyler Ennis Reportedly Commits to Syracuse
After an underwhelming 2012 class—at least compared to Jim Boehiem's 2010 and '11 classes—Tyler Ennis is a good way for the University of Syracuse to start 2013.
The news comes from cbssports.com's Jeff Borzello:
Syracuse had long been considered the favorite to land Tyler Ennis. The Orange recruited him harder than nearly anyone in the country, and he also attended their Midnight Madness night last season.
On Thursday, Ennis made it official – he's headed to Syracuse.
Ennis is a big-time player.
It's still early to know, but the soon-to-be senior is an all-around stud. As a point guard, he's obviously good with the ball in his hands, but he's also a terrific penetrator and distributor, especially on the break.
Throw in his ability to finish at the cup, hit the outside jumper and really just score from anywhere on the court, and Jim Boeheim has himself a very talented floor general.
That's important, especially when you consider the only other PG who will be on the roster in 2013-14 is Michael Carter-Williams.
In 2013-14, how many minutes will Tyler Ennis log per game?
While Ennis has been playing his high school ball in New Jersey, he is originally from Canada, further highlighting the serious influx of talent from the United States' northern neighbor.
Anthony Bennett, Andrew Wiggins and now Ennis are just a few of the top high school names making a move south, and Boeheim is taking advantage of the increasingly stellar pipeline.
Former Orange studs Andy Rautins and Kris Joseph were also from Canada, marking the potential start of a new trend.
So while the verbal commitment from Ennis is obviously a positive for Syracuse on the court, it could mean much more simply for recruiting purposes, as well.
