Elliot Cadeau, a 2024 five-star point guard who has Syracuse basketball in his top six, has put forth some really impressive performances so far in the young 2022-23 season for his prep school.

And his team, the powerhouse Link Academy in Branson, Mo., is off to a 9-0 start in the present term. In the latest top 25 from The HS Circuit released via Twitter, the Link Academy is ranked the No. 1 squad across the country.

This past spring, the Link Academy was the runner-up at the 2022 GEICO Nationals, and the Lions are expected to significantly contend for an invite to the 2023 GEICO Nationals, according to high-school hoops experts.

Should the Link Academy be in a position for a possible national title in 2022-23, the 6-foot-1 Cadeau will undeniably prove a pivotal piece for the Lions.

Syracuse basketball is recruiting five-star point guard Elliot Cadeau hard.

Orange coaches offered a scholarship to Cadeau in November of 2021. At the end of this October, he disclosed a top six of the ‘Cuse, North Carolina, Louisville, Texas Tech, Texas and 2022 national champion Kansas.

Cadeau, who has said he may look to take an official visit to the Hill, recently doled out a whopping 13 assists in a win by the Link Academy, according to statistics on theseasonticket.com.

Multiple recruiting services rate him as the No. 1 point guard nationwide in the junior class, and he’s also a top-10 overall prospect, according to some recruiting Web sites. As we noted in a recent column, analysts say that the option is available for Cadeau to join the 2023 cycle.

What I love about Cadeau’s skill set is that he clearly can facilitate well for others. At the same time, he’s also an effective scorer. Cadeau has already produced 18 points on two separate occasions, and he dropped 23 points in the Link Academy’s 67-51 triumph over an excellent foe, the Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The Lions will play one of the most challenging schedules around the country in 2022-23, with some of their future opponents including strong groups such as the Southern California Academy in Northridge, Calif., the Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah, and the Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla.

By the way, in The HS Circuit’s latest top 25, placing at No. 22 was Christ the King Regional High School in Middle Village, N.Y., a team whose roster includes Syracuse basketball 2025 four-star target Kiyan Anthony, the son of Carmelo Anthony.

On Monday night, the Royals were slated to travel to the Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, Calif., whose line-up features 2023 four-star guard Bronny James, the son of LeBron James.
