Here is the latest commitment.

Player: Sadiq White
Class: 2025
Committed to: Syracuse

More About His Game and What He Brings:

White is such an interesting prospect and I’m eager to see what he can do for Syracuse and in the ACC.  He is a 6’8 prospect that has a tremendous balance of length, skillset, and athleticism in his game. White is one that can make an immediate impact on the defensive end, as he alters shots and really can be a difference-maker in controlling the paint. That was something that stood out immediately at a young age, and he has only added more to his overall game. With his motor and athleticism, he excels in running the floor and finishing at the rim but has continued to show that he can operate from multiple positions on the floor. White is at his best running rim to rim and using his bounce to his advantage. However, he also shows the ability to make plays off the bounce, step out and knock down shots, and is showing his comfort level from a variety of other areas. And he is fluid enough to be disruptive from multiple positions. He should be able to flourish and be an impact player for the Orange in the coming years on both ends, as he continues to add more, get stronger, and adjust to the ACC.

What Has Been Said:

“The 6’8 long, lengthy, and athletic prospect was putting on a show and showing just exactly what he can be on the court; a dominant force on both ends. His ability to run the floor, use his length to finish at the rim, block shots and protect the basket, and be a force that moves exceptionally well all make him so unique and enticing.  White is at his best when he is able to showcase that elite athleticism as a forward, dominating and being quicker than others, and showing his strength in finishing on top of defenders at the rim as well as protecting the basket. But you can see that he is continuing to add more and diversify his game, showing his ability to step out, make plays off the bounce, create for himself, and be used in a variety of ways on both sides of the court. He continues to make progress while excelling in what he does best. This is why he is such a unique prospect as his game already excites you, but there is still so much room for growth.”

“There were a lot of enticing standouts on display, but White was arguably in a category by himself in terms of intrigue. Already a long, fluid 6-foot-4, he possesses an incredible array of tools along with the ability to actively toggle between the interior and perimeter. White handled the ball, made smart passes, and showcased athleticism and versatility on both ends of the floor. He’s great in transition, both with or without the ball in his hands, and finishes well when attacking the basket. Although he’s already impressive, White is truly just beginning to harness his long-term potential. Should he continue to work, White could realistically become a star in the near future.”

“When you watch White operate, it is hard to comprehend how a 6’8 young prospect moves so well and he will have you mesmerized. He is extremely athletic at his size and moves/runs the floor extremely well, really showing his ability to finish at the rim and there aren’t many that will test him there. But he also has tremendous pop to his game; his quick second jump to go along with his length, White at times just looks like he hovers above the competition and simply snags the ball over opponents. He has only continued to add pieces to his game and we fully expect that to continue throughout the year, as well as his confidence level continuing to rise as well.”
