On Friday, we reported that it had been reported by @Syracusebball that the Orange had offered Kevin Huerter of Shenendehowa a scholarship set to begin in 2017.

Since Huerter graduates from Shen in 2016, the Orange would ask Huerter to attend prep school for a year.

Today, we spoke with Ben Sigel, who is @Syracusebball on Twitter, about that situation. Sigel indicated that part of the reason they are not extending the offer until 2017 could be because the lanky guard needs more time to mature physically.

However, he also added that the scholarship reductions Syracuse is facing is part of the equation. "They really just don't have room for him right now," Sigel told me. They only have one scholarship left for the Class of 2016 and the Orange need to go after top talent (one-and-done guys) who will help them stay relevant immediately.

Huerter's length and shooting ability make him desirable to SU on both offense and defense. Sigel said that Huerter's body frame is similar to that of Michael Carter-Williams.
