Syracuse has one of the top recruiting classes in the country in 2010, and now they are off and running in 2011 with their first commitment from Michael Carter-Williams of Hamilton (R.I.) St. Andrews.
Syracuse has been strong with Carter-Williams since the beginning of his recruitment, and a couple visits to the campus convinced him it was the right place for him.
"I feel most comfortable at Syracuse," said Carter-Williams, 6-foot-4, 175-pounds. "I love the facilities and the coaches."
Carter-Williams, who had offers from over ten other schools, also visited Providence, Virginia and Villanova during his recruitment.
A combo guard with length, Carter-Williams also feels that the Syracuse style of play fits him well.
"I'm a long kid, so in the zone that will help," he said. "I'll be able to take up space. I also like to get out and run the court. I'll probably play the one for them."
As a sophomore, Carter-Williams averaged 13 points and six rebounds per game.
