Syracuse Basketball Offers Four-Star Canadian

It is the revolving door of college basketball: as one player leaves, another is on the way.


Amid the constantly changing team SU is facing so far this offseason, new offers are being made simultaneously.


The Orange offered Class of 2020 four-star Canadian Addison Patterson on Tuesday. Syracuse is currently one of six schools to make this move for Patterson, on a list with Arizona State, Florida, Oregon, USC and SMU.


The shooting guard ranks as the 111th best college basketball prospect form Canada and 25th at his position and ranks as the second best college basketball prospect in Ontatio, according to 247Sports.


Standing at 6’6” and 180 pounds, Patterson is an elite player that would add scoring depth and athleticism to a team that is looking to build on Final Four and Sweet Sixteen performances over the past three years.


There is still time before any college will see Patterson on their court, but it is good to see the puzzle pieces coming into view. Over time, the next step is to begin putting these new pieces together so we can see the full picture.
