Frank Anselem will head to Syracuse. On Tuesday, Jim Boeheim’s 2020 recruiting class increased by 50 percent — with a commitment from Anselem.
Anselem, a 4-star center from Georgia, is the third member of Syracuse’s incoming rookie class; he will join 4-star wing Kadary Richmond and 3-star forward Woody Newtom. Syracuse also added former Illinois wing Alan Griffin — one of the top 3-point artisans in the portal this offseason.

The 6-foot-10 Anselem picked Syracuse over Georgia, New Mexico and San Diego State. 247 Sports ranks Anselem as a top-150 prospect overall for 2020 and the No. 23 center.
Syracuse already has some depth along the frontline for next season; however, both Marek Dolezaj and Bourama Sidibe are seniors. Beyond those two, rising sophomore Quincy Guerrier showed plenty of potential during the 2019-20 season, especially on the glass. (Guerrier is going to be good. He already is, in fact.)
