If Boeheim wins another NC, there may be more tattoos of his face coming to CNY. (IG/kyleproiatattoo) Jim Boeheim elevated Syracuse to a national power in the late 80s, and won the 2003 NCAA Tournament, but the Hall of Famer has never had a more consistent stretch of success on the court and in recruiting than the last five or so years. Now, according to Boeheim, his 2015 class will be the best that Syracuse has ever brought in. 247Sports currently ranks Syracuse’s 2015 class No. 1 in their composite rankings. The class includes swingman Malachi Richardson, one of the top shooters in the class, versatile power forward Tyler Lydon, combo guard Franklin Howard, and big man Moustapha Diagne, all of whom are rated four or five stars depending on the website. The four players fill Syracuse’s scholarships for next season, but interestingly, Boeheim says that there will be a fifth member of the class. “I will tell you that next year’s recruiting class will be the best that we’ve ever had here at Syracuse University. That’s next year’s class — 2015. We’ve got four guys (who’ve committed) and we’re getting another, but I can’t talk about that. It’s going to be a great recruiting class, and I think you’ll be excited about the future.” The most likely final member of the class appears to be Thomas Bryant, the five-star Huntington Prep power forward who is from nearby Rochester, NY. In order for him to land at Syracuse, it means someone from this year’s roster will be gone. Could top prospect Chris McCullough enter the NBA after one year in college? Will someone transfer? However it happens, it seems like Boeheim and his staff has a plan, and these things tend to work themselves out. [Syracuse.com]
