Four-star winger Tyler Betsey, who received a Syracuse basketball scholarship offer earlier this summer, is one of the hottest prospects nationwide in class 2024.
The 6-foot-3 point guard/striker has been a staple in grassroots basketball in recent months, earning Betsey a flurry of praise from analysts and national scouts.
Preparing for the New York-based NY Renaissance in Nike’s EYBL league, Betsey played at an ultra-high level in July amidst an NCAA live period during EYBL’s annual Peach Jam tournament in North Augusta. , SC
As such, the freshman at St. Thomas More School in Oakdale, Connecticut is witnessing its 2024 national rankings soar and its list of suitors grow significantly.
Syracuse Basketball offered four-star winger Tyler Betsey in early July.
247Sports recently updated and expanded its 2024 national rankings to include 150 high school applicants. Betsey made one of the biggest leaps in her cycle, going from unranked to four stars, number 68 nationally, number 17 ward and number 1 in Connecticut.
On3, meanwhile, has it as four stars, number 75 overall, number 19 in ward and number 1 in Connecticut.
At the time of writing, industry-generated 247Sports Composite ranked Betsey four-star and number 96 nationwide, while industry-generated On3 Consensus ranked her four-star and number 84 nationwide.
Through recruitment services and her Twitter page, Betsey now has over 25 offers in total from a variety of major programs. Some of their latest offerings are from Indiana, Alabama, Notre Dame, Xavier and Seton Hall.
Betsey’s bid sheet also includes teams like Iowa, UConn, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Providence, Creighton, Rutgers, Rhode Island, TCU, Penn State, West Virginia, Iona, Nebraska and George Washington.
Last month, we noted in an article that Syracuse basketball was among the squads Betsey listens to regularly, through a Q&A he conducted with scouting service Pro Insight.
In mid-July, after getting an offer from ‘Cuse, Betsey told SyracuseOnSI editor Mike McAllister that she would like to pay Hill a visit at some point.
Given her many, many suitors, it would definitely be encouraging if Orange could receive an official or even unofficial visit from Betsey, who excelled as a sophomore at Windsor High School in Windsor, Connecticut.
Travis Branham, national analyst at 247Sports, highlighted Betsey’s skill set in an article when this recruiting service updated its 2024 ranking.
Branham wrote in part that Betsey “has fantastic size and length and will be a defensively versatile prospect. What sets him apart is his ability to stretch the ground, make three-point shots, and can attack close-ups to take down one- and two-dribble shots.”
