We recently outlined how Syracuse basketball coaches have doled out scholarship offers and shown interest in some of the highest-rated players within the 2024 recruiting cycle.

That trend seems to be continuing onward. Per a tweet from the director of recruiting at a Maryland-based AAU team, the Orange coaching staff is displaying interest in five-star guard Trentyn Flowers.

The 6-foot-8 Flowers appears to be an extremely versatile player, as I’ve seen him listed on various recruiting Web sites as a point guard, a shooting guard, a small forward and a power forward.

In any event, he’s a consensus top-25 prospect in this class, according to the primary recruiting services, and most of these Web sites place Flowers within the top-10 across the country in the 2024 cycle.

Syracuse basketball appears to be recruiting five-star Trentyn Flowers.

Dwayne Wise, the director of recruiting for the Maryland-based Team Durant on Nike’s EYBL circuit, said in a recent tweet that new suitors for Flowers include the ‘Cuse, North Carolina, Kentucky, Oregon, Texas Tech and TCU.

Flowers was recently added to the Team Durant roster for AAU competitions in the spring and summer months.

Wise noted in a separate tweet that Syracuse basketball was among the programs slated to see Team Durant suit up during an NCAA live period this weekend for a variety of EYBL contests in Indianapolis.

This past 2021-22 season, as a sophomore, Flowers competed for the Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, Calif., which finished with a record of 26-5, reports say.

According to a review of numerous recruiting services, he holds around 20 scholarship offers at this juncture, from teams such as Kansas, Georgetown, Michigan, Auburn, Southern California, Memphis, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, LSU, Illinois, Oklahoma State and Georgia Tech.

Besides the squads that Wise mentioned, Flowers is garnering interest from others like Duke and UCLA, per recruiting Web sites.

Most recruiting services rate Flowers as a five-star player in the 2024 cycle.

In ESPN’s new ratings for this class, he is No. 13 nationally and No. 3 at power forward. Rivals.com has Flowers at No. 9 overall.

The industry-generated 247Sports Composite ranks Flowers at No. 8 around the country and No. 3 at small forward. The On3 Consensus, meanwhile, puts him at No. 11 nationwide and No. 4 at small forward.

Just in the last few days, the Orange offered scholarships to a pair of 2024 prospects, both of whom play for Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, N.Y., and with the Bronx, N.Y.-based Wiz Kids on the Adidas circuit.

They are five-star guard Ian Jackson and talented shooting guard Elijah Moore. We’ll continue to follow the recruitments of Jackson, Moore and Flowers.
