Syracuse basketball recruiting efforts in the 2026 class are likely to ramp up sooner rather than later.

For one, on June 15, the contact period for this cycle opens up, enabling college coaches around the country, including the Orange staff, to start initiating direct communication with rising high school juniors. I'd anticipate that 'Cuse coaches will dole out some offers to 2026 players once this contact period opens.

What's more, beginning on August 1, 2026 prospects can commence taking official visits to college campuses.

To date, I'm aware of at least eight players in the 2026 cycle who have received scholarship offers from the Orange, with Syracuse basketball coaches showing an interest in other prospects from this class.

Numerous 2026 targets, so far, have gone on unofficial visits to the Hill, and we could see more recruits from this cycle schedule upcoming trips to the 'Cuse in the coming months.

Let's look at some potential visit candidates to Syracuse basketball among 2026 prospects.

At this juncture, these are the rising high school juniors who hold offers from the Orange:
Five-star guard/small forward Alex Constanza out of the Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
•Five-star shooting guard Jordan Smith Jr. out of St. Paul VI Catholic High School in Chantilly, Va.
•Five-star small forward Maximo Adams out of Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, Calif.
Four-star point guard Deron Rippey Jr. out of the Blair Academy in Blairstown, N.J.,
•Four-star point guard Neiko Mundey out of the Shabach Christian Academy in Landover, Md.
Four-star wing Imahri Wooten out of the Putnam Science Academy in Putnam, Conn.
•Four-star guard Prince-Alexander Moody out of Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Md.
Four-star point guard Anthony Brown, who last season suited up for St. Paul VI Catholic High School in Chantilly, Va., but plans to transfer to a new program for the 2024-25 season.

In late August of last year, several 2026 targets took unofficial visits to Syracuse basketball to compete in the team's annual Elite Camp. They are Mundey, Moody and Brown.

Additionally, Smith plans to go on an unofficial visit to the Orange on June 7. By extension, Rippey unofficially visited the 'Cuse in late February of this year, while Wooten went on an unofficial visit to Syracuse basketball last October.

In recent months, I've been told by their respective dads that Constanza, Rippey, Wooten and Brown are highly interested in visiting the Orange. Should Constanza visit, it could be an unofficial or official one. I would expect that if Rippey, Wooten and/or Brown take second trips to the Hill, those would be official visits.

In another recent article, I outlined various highly rated 2026 players whom I'd like to see the 'Cuse staff offer once the contact period for this class opens. One of those prospects is four-star guard Jasiah Jervis out of Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, N.Y., who is already receiving interest from the Orange staff.

Assuming Jervis is ultimately offered by Syracuse basketball coaches, I absolutely could envision him taking an unofficial or official visit to Central New York at some point.

Two other 2026 players to potentially monitor for possible visits to the 'Cuse include four-star combo guard Parker Robinson and four-star guard/wing Adam Oumiddoch, both of whom are from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, which is a key recruiting market for the Orange staff.

Robinson and Oumiddoch both suit up in the Atlanta-based professional league Overtime Elite. Robinson, last August, unofficially visited the 'Cuse for the team's annual Elite Camp. Oumiddoch said in July of 2023 to media outlet Pro Insight that Syracuse basketball was one of the college teams on his radar.

Should Orange coaches offer Robinson and Oumiddoch as the 2026 contact period opens, I'd be curious to see if either or both of them end up taking visits to the 'Cuse. For Robinson, it would be at least his second trip to the Hill.

Naturally, once June 15 comes and goes, we'll see what other rising high school juniors secure Syracuse basketball offers. As the Orange staff expands its 2026 recruiting activities, naturally, other prospects in this class could be in the fold for potential visits to Syracuse basketball in the future.
