He redshirted last season because of SU’s depth in the back court. An October tonsillectomy knocked him out of 14 practices...
The Syracuse Orange made a late run at Ron Patterson and snagged his commitment.
Jim Boeheim and Orange hoops reeled in five more stars last night. That’s 14 stars over the last three weeks if you’re keeping count. Five-star Class of 2014 PF Chris McCullough became the latest Syracuse commit, a day after his Brewster Academy teammate, Ron Patterson, also chose SU. It was a no-brainer for the Bronx native.
