Recruiting service On3 has published its first set of national ratings for the 2024 cycle, and several Syracuse basketball recruiting targets made the cut in this list of the top-25 players in the sophomore class.

Those prospects, who either hold scholarship offers or interest from the Orange coaching staff, are five-star wing Ian Jackson, four-star point guard Elliot Cadeau, four-star power forward Derik Queen and four-star wing Vyctorius Miller.

According to On3, Jackson is No. 2 across the country in the 2024 cycle, followed by Cadeau at No. 7, Queen at No. 10, and Miller at No. 11.

Based on media reports and recruiting services, I’m counting 10 guys in the 2024 class who have a ‘Cuse offer or interest from the Orange.

The latest scholarship offer, as we detailed on Monday, went out to Damarius Owens, a 6-foot-7 guard/forward who attends the Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio, and competes on the AAU circuit with the Albany City Rocks.

Let’s take a further look at these highly ranked Syracuse basketball 2024 recruits.

The 6-foot-6 Jackson, a shooting guard/small forward, is out of Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, N.Y. He has reportedly garnered interest from the ‘Cuse.

National analysts, including On3’s Jamie Shaw, have said that Jackson could make a run at the No. 1 overall rating in the 2024 cycle.

Jackson has landed scholarship offers to date from teams including St. John’s, Seton Hall, Oklahoma State, UConn, Nebraska, Kansas State and Bryant.

The 6-foot-1 Cadeau, from Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell, N.J., is ranked the No. 1 point guard in his class, according to multiple recruiting services.

Cadeau, offered by Syracuse basketball last November, counts other scholarship offers from the likes of Seton Hall, Providence, St. John’s, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, TCU, UMass, Howard and Siena.

A Baltimore native, the 6-foot-8 Queen goes to the powerhouse Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla. The Orange offered him this past October.

Besides Syracuse basketball, Queen’s offers include from Xavier, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Auburn, DePaul, Maryland, Texas, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, LSU and Arizona State.

Reports suggest the ‘Cuse coaching staff has shown an interest in the 6-foot-5 Miller, a shooting guard/small forward out of Crean Lutheran High School in Irvine, Calif.

His growing offer sheet features UCLA, Kansas, Arizona, Arizona State, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Wake Forest and Ole Miss. Syracuse basketball and Oregon, among others, are reportedly displaying an interest in Miller.

Shaw noted that Orange 2024 recruiting target Yves Missi, a four-star center, could ultimately play his way into the next rankings update by On3 for this cycle.

The 6-foot-11 Missi, who picked up a ‘Cuse offer last December, is from the West Nottingham Academy in Colora, Md. A top-40 player in the 2024 class per several recruiting Web sites, Missi has received other offers from UCLA, St. John’s, DePaul, Norfolk State and USC Upstate.
