top-notch programs, including Connecticut, Kansas, Maryland, St. John’s, Virginia and the defending national champions, Villanova.
Additionally, Syracuse has extended an offer to Eric Ayala, another 2018 four-star point guard, who revealed the news via his Twitter page late last month.
The 6-5 Ayala, a native of Hockessin, Del., is from the Putnam Science Academy in Putnam, Conn., the same school attended by five-star shooting guard Hamidou Diallo, an Orange target in the 2017 class.
Ayala is listed at No. 83 overall by 247Sports, and No. 3 at the combo-guard position.
Similar to Quinerly, Ayala has a bunch of offers from teams like Arizona, Cincinnati, Maryland, Miami, Oklahoma State, St. John’s, Temple and UConn.
However, per a Nov. 26 article from 247Sports, Ayala may consider reclassifying to 2017 “for the right opportunity.”
That would prove key should he decide to join SU. As we’ve recently documented, Syracuse clearly needs a point guard for next year’s class.
