Franklin Howard is official to Syracuse. Orange just have such a great recruiting thing going right now
 
Alex Kline @TheRecruitScoop 22m
Franklin Howard is long, shoots it well from outside, has a floater game & is a great passer. Look for Syracuse to use him as a combo guard.
 
Evan Daniels @EvanDaniels 38m
Syracuse now has three top 100 recruits in the 2015 class. That is more than anyone else thus far.
 
Eric Bossi @ebosshoops 36m
Syracuse now has No. 21 (Malachi Richardson), No. 58 Howard and No. 59 (Tyler Lydon) in 2015 committed.

Hearing 2016 Canadian G Jamal Murray is impressing people at the Nike Hoop Summit practices. Game is tomorrow night on ESPN2.

Jonathan Givony @DraftExpress 57m
Jamal Murray was absolutely on fire most of the week in practice. Comes into game and knocks down a 3 off the dribble. Sharpshooter.

Jonathan Givony @DraftExpress 18m
Jamal Murray is quite a shooter, but he's also fairly one-dimensional. Struggles to create off the dribble and is a very poor defender.
