Tyler Ennis picks Syracuse over UCLA

Unfortunately the search for a standout pg continues. He put UCLA on his short list and we really needed him. Now, not so sure who we have in our short list of pgs.

From CBS sports:

"Ennis, who ran alongside consensus No. 1 player Andrew Wiggins with CIA Bounce on the AAU circuit, is a 6-foot-2 point guard from Canada who plays for St. Benedict's (N.J.). When the 2013 rankings are updated, he will sit at the No. 5 spot at his position. He excels in transition because of his speed, but he is also capable of running a halfcourt set and finding teammates for baskets. He knows how to get to the rim off the dribble, and he can also get hot from behind the arc. Ennis' strength is his penetration ability, as he can draw defenders and kickout, or finish himself.

Before Ennis committed, Syracuse looked very thin at the point guard position for the 2013-14 season. Brandon Triche only has one season left, so Michael Carter-Williams would have been the only scholarship point guard on the roster. Carter-Williams is very talented, but he's more of a scorer and could also leap to the NBA if he has a breakout year this season. Ennis should be able to step in immediately and get major minutes running the offense. Defensively, he will need to learn the ins and outs of the 2-3 zone, but he plays the passing lanes well for steals.

Ennis is the first commitment for Jim Boeheim in the class of 2013. He also continues the Canadian pipeline to Syracuse, taking the baton from Andy Rautins and Kris Joseph."
