Tyler Ennis, one of the top 2013 point guards, will visit Syracuse unofficially Feb. 11 for the UConn game, his father told SNY.tv.
The 6-foot-3 Ennis is considering Syracuse, along with Kansas, Arizona, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Memphis and others.
Ennis and his father, Tony McIntyre of CIA Bounce, are in the midst of planning February visits to Arizona and Louisville.
“I’m interested in all of them,” Ennis recently told SNY.tv.
UConn assistant Kevin Ollie was also at St. Benedict’s Friday for Ennis and 6-2 freshman Isaiah Briscoe, who is considering the Huskies, Syracuse and others.
Ennis is the floor general of a St. Benedict’s team ranked No. 14 in the Five Star Basketball power rankings.
St. Ben’s coach Mark Taylor said he thinks Ennis is among the best point guards in the nation.
“I do,” he said. “I think definitely [among] juniors, maybe even [among] seniors].”
