Syracuse basketball offered a scholarship to 2024 five-star point guard Boogie Fland out of New York state last month, and the Orange is reportedly recruiting him hard, according to a national analyst.

The 6-foot-3 Fland, a consensus top-15 national prospect in the junior cycle, has amassed around 30 offers throughout his recruiting process, so clearly, the competition is steep as the ‘Cuse coaching staff attempts to prevail for him.

He is having a terrific 2022-23 season for Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, N.Y. You can check out his latest statistics for Archbishop Stepinac by heading over to the MaxPreps Web site.

Boogie Fland, who runs with the Bronx, N.Y.-based PSA Cardinals in Nike’s EYBL league, could have a way to go with his recruitment, and I haven’t seen any predictions as of yet from experts as to a potential collegiate destination for him.

Syracuse basketball appears to be putting on a full-court press for 2024 five-star PG Boogie Fland.

Besides the Orange, Fland’s offer sheet includes Alabama, North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas, Villanova, UCLA, UConn, Oregon, Indiana, LSU, Auburn, Michigan, Illinois, Maryland, Miami, Pittsburgh, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s, TCU, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, Louisville, Florida and Oklahoma, among others.

He took an official visit to North Carolina last September. To that end, it would prove huge if the ‘Cuse coaching staff could get him to Central New York for a visit.

Rob Cassidy, a national analyst with, wrote in a recent piece that “Syracuse is making a serious push for five-star Boogie Fland. And while that battle will be contested, to say the least, the Orange are trying like hell to get him on campus for a visit.”

As I first reported last month, businessman, philanthropist and top SU booster Adam Weitsman has offered a major name, image and likeness deal to Fland.

In late January, Syracuse basketball received its first verbal commitment in the 2024 class, from four-star shooting guard Elijah Moore with Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx, N.Y. Weitsman has verbally agreed to a sizable NIL deal with the 6-foot-4 Moore, who is deemed by multiple recruiting services as the No. 3 prospect in New York state within the junior cycle.

Boogie Fland, by the way, is rated as the No. 2 player in New York, according to the primary recruiting services. He is also ranked the No. 1 point guard in 2024 by both the industry-generated On3 Consensus and the On3 recruiting service.

Without question, Syracuse basketball faces a massive challenge in trying to win out in Fland’s recruitment. But I do credit Orange coaches for giving it their best shot with Boogie Fland.

What’s more, if the ‘Cuse could secure a commitment from him, the team’s fan base would surely be thrilled with Syracuse basketball having two of the top 2024 prospects in the Empire State within this class for the Orange.
