Syracuse Basketball Lands 4-Star PG Jalen Carey

|

The Syracuse basketball program scored big on the recruiting trail this week.

On Wednesday, four-star point guard Jalen Carey announced he would be joining Jim Boeheim’s squad as a member of the Class of 2018.

Carey announced his decision in a video shared on social media.

The Harlem, New York native chose the Orange over UConn. Miami had also been considered as a potential landing spot, but Carey directed his attention elsewhere after the Hurricanes became involved in the ongoing FBI investigation into a NCAA bribery scandal.

Carey is ranked as the No. 11 point guard in his class and the No. 4 overall prospect in the state of New York, according to 247 Sports.

Carey becomes the third member of Syracuse’s Class of 2018, joining five-star small forward Darius Bazley and the son of the head coach, three-star shooting guard Buddy Boeheim.
