Syracuse pulled in another big commitment to its Class of 2018 haul on Wednesday as four-star guard Jalen Carey committed to the Orange.

The 6-foot-4 Carey is considered the No. 49 overall prospect in the Rivals Class of 2018 national rankings as Syracuse is getting an aggressive guard who can score from multiple levels of the floor. Carey was impressive playing with the Playaz Basketball Club in the Nike EYBL this past spring as he averaged 18.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 44 percent from three-point range.

With an ability to play at multiple perimeter spots, Carey is a nice fit in this Syracuse recruiting class as he joins five-star wing forward Darius Bazley and three-star wing shooter Buddy Boeheim. While the Orange might be a young team this season, they have a lot of promising pieces coming in with this recruiting class that should fit in nicely with the current pieces on the roster.
