Syracuse basketball continues to offer scholarships to high-school prospects in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

A new offer has gone out to 6-foot-4 shooting guard Elijah Moore, according to a tweet from scouting service Endless Motor Sports.

Moore recently finished up his sophomore season at Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, N.Y., and he played a key role in his team claiming the New York state Catholic High School Athletic Association (“CHSAA”) Class AA championship during the 2021-22 stanza, according to media reports.

With that title, Cardinal Hayes High School wrapped up 2021-22 with an overall mark of 26-3, and MaxPreps placed the squad at No. 7 nationally in its final top-25 rankings.

Syracuse basketball has offered underrated shooting guard Elijah Moore.

In AAU events, Moore suits up for the Bronx, N.Y.-based Wiz Kids on the Adidas circuit. Not too long ago, the various shoe-sponsored AAU circuits held a slate of games during an NCAA live period where college coaches could watch in person.

From a variety of comments that I came across via analysts and scouts, Moore’s sharp-shooting skills were on full display during this live period.

I took a look at his bio on several recruiting Web sites, including 247SportsRivals.com and Verbal Commits, and the other early offers to Moore that I noticed are from Saint Peter’s, Temple and Fordham.

Trust me, his number of offers is going to grow, and rather quickly, in my humble opinion. Moore performed at a high level for Cardinal Hayes High School, and if he keeps on shining at AAU competitions, his offer sheet is going to expand sooner rather than later.

Plus, on June 15, college coaches will be able to start making direct contact with 2024 prospects, and I could envision offers piling up for Moore shortly thereafter.

From what I can tell in looking at some of his highlights and perusing comments about his game, Moore is a knock-down shooter from beyond the arc who also boasts a strong mid-range, pull-up jumper.

The primary recruiting services don’t appear to have Moore within their 2024 national ratings at this juncture. However, similar to his offer sheet, that is going to change, at least from my perspective.

Moore’s teammate at both Cardinal Hayes High School and with the Wiz Kids, 2024 five-star guard Ian Jackson, was also offered by Syracuse basketball coaches this week.

I really get pumped to see the Orange offer talented players from New York City, and we’ll of course continue to follow the recruiting processes of both Jackson and Moore.
