The Syracuse Basketball jigsaw puzzle is beginning to take shape as pieces to the Orange 2018 recruiting class fall into place. And soon, one recruit might bring the whole picture into focus.
Four-star power forward Dimon Carrigan has narrowed his school list down to eight options. Among them, Syracuse is still in the race.

While there is no set date for the 6-foot-9-inch, 215-pound player to announce his final decision, it is easy to see the Lynn, Massachusetts native playing a big role in Central New York.
His ability to rebound and get to the rim can strengthen the Orange offensive core. At the same time, his ability to nab a ball on defense can swing momentum SU’s way.
His height allows him to dunk with ease, and tip-offs are rarely out of reach.
Carrigan is metaphorically and literally built for the job. His big-man stature won’t let anyone mess with him down in front. He’s also a shot-blocker utility, racking up steals along the way.
Along with Syracuse, Carrigan is still considering Miami, Wichita State, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Houston, Texas, and Connecticut.
