Syracuse Basketball Checks in at No. 14 in SI All-American's 2022 Class Rankings - Sports Illustrated Syracuse Orange News, Analysis and More
The Orange has one of the best classes in the country.
Assuming Benny is back, Cole is not, and nobody transfers, I think we only need one player in the portal--a scoring small forward to pair with Benny in the starting lineup. I think JB intends to start Taylor immediately, seeing him as a plug-and-play replacement for Buddy. Seems like JB really wanted Justin, he even picked him up at the airport! Taylor is probably a more versatile player and better athlete than either Buddy or Girard were as freshmen.Gotta give the staff credit for this class, did a really nice job of setting up the program with a nice foundation / base of players for the future. Will have to supplement with some experienced guys from the portal assuming we lose Buddy, Cole, and Jimmy.
