Tyler Ennis, the No. 20 rated recruit according to Rivals, has committed to Syracuse, announcing the news on CIA Bounce TV. Ennis, who played for St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, NJ, chose Syracuse over Illinois, Louisville, Memphis and UCLA.
Ennis, originally from Ontario, Canada, had zeroed in on Syracuse, after visiting the program a few times during the 2011-12 season. Ennis even called Syracuse his dream school when asked to name one by then-assistant coach at St. Benedict's, Billy Diamond.
Ennis was the fourth-highest rated point guard by Scout.com. He joins a Syracuse squad that currently features sophomore Michael Carter-Williams, a former McDonald's All-American, and senior Brandon Triche as its floor general.
Next season, Triche will not longer eligible and depending on Carter-Williams' NBA stock a year from now, Ennis could take over the reins as soon as he gets to SU.
