    Less than two weeks after committing to Duke, Columbia grad transfer Patrick Tapé has reopened his recruitment, sources confirmed to ZAGSBLOG.

    Tapé, a 6-foot-10, 230-pound center from Charlotte, N.C., committed to Duke on March 24th over several programs including Ohio State, Georgetown, Maryland, Syracuse and USC.

    Sources said Syracuse remains in play for Tapé.

    After withdrawing from the Columbia team last November due to a foot injury, he will be immediately eligible to play in the 2020-21 season.

    Tapé averaged 11.3 points and 5.3 rebounds in 22.8 minutes per game as a junior during the 2018-19 season.
