Frank Howard Update
2015 G Frank Howard was in attendance during Syracuse's 57-55 win at Maryland on Monday night. The 2015 4-star G has been heavily recruited by Syracuse for some-time now. He received an offer from Syracuse during his Orange Madness visit back in October.
I caught up with Frank after the Syracuse-Maryland game to gather his thoughts. "The game was great. The atmosphere was great, and both teams were great," he told Cusebasketball.net. Frank informed me it was his first time seeing Syracuse live, and he enjoyed watching them play. "I really like Syracuse's style of play. They give their guards a lot of freedom and a lot of ball screens." Howard is an athletic scorer with a very good jumper. He would fit very well in SU's system.
When I asked Frank about whether or not his list has changed since the last time we spoke, he confirmed to me it hasn't. "The list will get cut probably towards the middle-end of summer." I fully expect the Orange to make the cut, barring something drastic happening. Syracuse has two spots left in the 2015 recruiting class, and a lot of targets still on the board.
Frank told me earlier in the month that his interest for Syracuse "remains very high." Howard is sitting his junior year out after tearing his ACL last summer. He has been rehabbing, and expects to play in the summer. It doesn't seem like there will be a decision soon, but Syracuse has to love their position with the elite guard.
