Syracuse has lost the 2010 Big Fish.
Zags Blog reports that Brandon Knight has whittled his list down to four schools, none of them Syracuse.
The Fizz detailed just how talented Knight is recently. He is roundly considered the top player in the class, a guard who can slash, score and has been wooed by seemingly every school in the Top-10.
UConn, Kentucky, Florida, and Kansas still in play; according to Zagoria, he’ll announce in the spring. Well, at least my rankings hypothesis still has its merits.
In all seriousness, Knight’s decision shouldn’t be that shocking. The Wildcats’ John Wall will most likely bounce after this season, like John Calipari’s last two point guards have, leaving Knight as the next freshman phenom in that system.
Sherron Collins is a senior at Kansas, and if Cole Aldrich doesn’t go pro, it offers him the opportunity to create a high-low domination in the Big 12.
UConn has Kemba Walker right now, but some have the sophomore on early draft boards. And Florida, well, their backcourt is – short. ‘Cuse fans know what I’m talking about.
Meanwhile, SU has a freshman and a sophomore splitting minutes at the point. Both seem comfortable with that, and they probably aren’t headed out of town anytime soon. They’re also doing pretty well at it.
The Orange situation just doesn’t make sense for a guy who’s looking for immediate exposure.
What that leaves on the board is Josh Selby, the last recruit Hopkins and Murphy have been nudging. What remains to be seen of that? You just gotta stay tuned to The Fizz.
