One of the top high-school prospects in the sophomore class said in a recent interview that he would like to hear from Syracuse basketball coaches.

Joson Sanon is a 6-foot-6 shooting guard/small forward in the 2025 cycle. He was terrific on the most recent AAU circuit, and the four-star Sanon also earned high praise from experts for his recent performance at the prestigious National Prep Showcase in New Haven, Conn.

Sanon is a sophomore at the Vermont Academy, a prep school in Saxtons River, Vt., where Orange senior guard Symir Torrence also played a few years back.

In grassroots basketball, Sanon runs with the Boston Amateur Basketball Club in Nike’s EYBL league. On3 national analyst Jamie Shaw wrote in a recent piece that Sanon boasted “a big summer with the BABC program.”

A top-flight 2025 prospect has interest in Syracuse basketball.

Sanon recently discussed the early stages of his recruiting process with Shaw. In that interview, Sanon said he would like to hear from several schools, including North Carolina and the ‘Cuse.

According to recruiting services and his Twitter page, Sanon’s early offer sheet includes Boston College, Iowa, Nebraska, Providence, Marquette, Bryant and UMass.

At the recent National Prep Showcase, Sanon tallied 22 points, four rebounds, one assist and one block as the Vermont Academy crushed Massanutten Military Academy from Woodstock, Va., by a final count of 72-39.

That’s per 247Sports director of scouting Adam Finkelstein, who called Sanon’s output “a statement performance from one of the youngest players in the field.”

"Finkelstein added, “What was especially striking was the blend of efficiency and versatility he showed within his individual offense as he knocked down catch-and-shoot threes, mid-range pull-ups, and tough lay-ups with both hands.”"

At this juncture, 247Sports places Sanon at No. 39 overall, No. 8 at small forward and No. 1 in Vermont within the 2025 class. On3 has him even higher, putting Sanon at No. 32 nationally and No. 6 at small forward.

Naturally, we’d love to see Syracuse basketball show interest in Sanon and perhaps offer him a scholarship. We’ll certainly keep tabs on his recruitment moving forward.

By my count, the Orange has offered four 2025 prospects, and they are four-star shooting guard Kiyan Anthony from New York City, four-star guard Jerry Easter II from Ohio, four-star wing Efeosa Oliogu from Canada, and four-star guard Darius Adams from New Jersey.
