Recruiting service 247Sports has published its final list of the top-150 prospects around the country in the 2022 class, and only a pair of Syracuse basketball commits in the team’s six-member cycle is included in these updated rankings.

Those in the top 150 from 247Sports are four-star combo guard Judah Mintz and four-star small forward Chris Bunch.

The 6-foot-3 Mintz, out of the Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., comes in at No. 54 nationally, No. 10 at combo guard and No. 2 in Virginia.

The 6-foot-7 Bunch, with the Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah, is rated as No. 61 overall, No. 18 at small forward and No. 3 in Utah.

Let’s review what 247Sports says about other Syracuse basketball 2022 signees.

The remaining four commits for the ‘Cuse in the 2022 cycle didn’t make the top-150 rankings from 247Sports. This recruiting service rates these players all as three stars.

Justin Taylor, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard/small forward out of the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., is ranked as the No. 36 small forward per 247Sports, as well as the No. 19 prospect in Florida.

Taylor’s IMG Academy teammate during the 2021-22 stanza is another Orange commit, 6-foot-6 point guard Quadir Copeland. He is placed by 247Sports as the No. 24 combo guard (some recruiting services list Copeland as a combo guard rather than a point guard) and the No. 24 player in Florida.

Maliq Brown, a 6-foot-9 power forward, was fabulous in his senior year for the Blue Ridge School in St. George, Va. He is rated as the No. 53 power forward and the No. 10 prospect in Virginia, according to 247Sports.

Peter Carey is a 6-foot-11 power forward/center who was injured and unfortunately didn’t get to play his senior campaign for the Northfield Mount Hermon School in Mount Hermon, Mass.

Per 247Sports, Carey is the No. 56 power forward in the 2022 class, as well as the No. 7 player in Massachusetts within this cycle.

While these 2022 ratings from 247Sports give a snapshot into the six Syracuse basketball commits in this class, we’ve detailed in various stories of late where these Orange signees recently arrived in the final rankings from other recruiting services.

These sorts of ratings are somewhat subjective and certainly can fluctuate from one recruiting service to the next. One thing that does seem somewhat clear is that Mintz and Bunch, by and large, are the highest-rated commits for the ‘Cuse in the 2022 cycle.
