Syracuse’s men’s basketball program is now becoming a third Boeheim.
Cornell move Jimmy Boeheim declared his devotion to the Orange on Friday; he’ll join his brother, Buddy, also will play with their dad, Jim.
“Back home into the location which made me fall in love with the match,” Jimmy Boeheim composed on Instagram.
Boeheim, a 6-foot-8 ahead, did not play last season because of the Ivy League canceling winter sports. He entered the move portal site in the autumn and will graduate from Cornell this spring.
“I can not wait. I am really only counting the days when I could get in the Melo Center. Just imagining my name on a locker there. It is frankly surreal. I never hoped this was going to take place. My strategy was always to remain at Cornell, grad and utilize my own eligibility up there. But given the conditions of this previous calendar year, here we are. I truly can not wait. I am counting down the moments.”
Syracuse lately saw beginning forward Alan Griffin enter his name into the NBA draft, while fellow beginner Marek Dolezaj completed his senior season and will not utilize his extra year of eligibility.
Buddy Boeheim (17.8 PPG) enjoyed a breakout junior season for Syracuse, and has been among the celebrities of the NCAA tournament.
The Orange were rated No. 14 at ESPN’s first Way-Too-Early Top 25.
