Sadiq White, Others On SU Radar Impress At Top 100 Camp

It’s no secret that recruiting for Adrian Autry and Syracuse basketball is on the rise. With two top recruits on the way in Elijah Moore and Donnie Freeman for 2024 and the landing of 2025 five-star Sadiq White last week, you can’t say the future isn’t bright in the 315. You know what though, it can always get brighter. The NBPA is holding its Top 100 Camp this week down in Florida, and a lot of names Syracuse has interest in have shown out in a big way. Let’s dive into some of the notable prospects.

Sadiq White (Class of 2025, Syracuse)

The official commitment of White to the Orange last week marked a major turning point for the program. With one major star heading towards Syracuse, fans are hopeful a domino effect might begin. Either way, White has proven at camp so far why he is so highly touted out of high school. Through two days, the 6’8 forward has averaged over 28 points per game, including showcasing his bounce any chance he can get. The junior has also shown his ability on defense, notching three blocks and two steals in the first two contests. You can’t be disappointed with the showing from White thus far if you’re a Syracuse fan.

Kiyan Anthony (Class of 2025, Undecided)

The son of SU icon Carmelo Anthony has been linked to his father’s alma mater his entire athletic career. As he draws closer and closer to a decision, hopes are high that the four-star recruit will follow in Melo’s footsteps. But in his own right, Anthony has had an impressive camp thus far. The guard has exploded on offense, scoring a camp-high 42 points on day one. There have been a lot of social media comparisons between Kiyan and his father’s NBA play this week, as he took 39 shots in one game during the tournament with just one assist. Anthony continues to turn a lot of heads, and Syracuse has scouts at the camp taking note of it.

Chris Cenac Jr. (Class of 2025, Undecided)

This one might be a name SU fans haven’t heard just yet, but believe me that you should. The five-star big man measures in at 6 ’10 with a 7′ 3 wingspan, the size that Syracuse desperately needs looking ahead to the future years. So far at camp, Cenac Jr. has dazzled, averaging just under 20 points per game and a double-double. On the defensive side of the ball, the New Orleans native has had multiple steals in every game played thus far. The Orange recently offered Cenac a scholarship, and a visit is on the horizon. If you’re a Syracuse basketball fan, make this guy known as a strong option for the future down low.

This is the 30th year of NBPA’s Top 100 camp, and the talent on display continues to amaze. According to the chief of player programs Purvis Short, over 300 campers have gone on to have successful NBA careers. For the ‘Cuse, this camp is a great opportunity to see the talent firsthand and build a roster for the future.
