Tyler Ennis Commits to Syracuse

by August 17, 2012

Five-star recruit Tyler Ennis has committed to Syracuse University. Ennis, a 6-3 point guard who is a rising senior at St. Benedict’s Prep (NJ), is among the nation’s best facilitators. Syracuse had long been considered the favorite to land him, as they recruited him harder than any school in the country. More details, via CBSSports.com: “Ennis chose the Orange over Memphis, UCLA, Louisville and Illinois. Ennis ran alongside consensus No. 1 player Andrew Wiggins with CIA Bounce on the AAU circuit. He excels in transition because of his speed, but he is also capable of running a halfcourt set and finding teammates for baskets. He knows how to get to the rim off the dribble, and he can also get hot from behind the arc. Ennis’ strength is his penetration ability, as he can draw defenders and kickout, or finish himself.”
