Syracuse has signed 6-foot-9, 200-pound Slovakian forward Marek Dolezaj, the school announced on Wednesday.
The Eurohopes Twitter reported earlier this week he had committed.
Dolezaj visited the Syracuse campus earlier this month.
“I want to be better and I want to be in the NBA,” Dolezaj told Scout in February.
“I can study there and I can play high level of basketball and may be easier to get into the NBA,” he added.
Dolezaj told the site he can play multiple positions.
