Symir Torrence, a four-star guard prospect who is committed to play for the Marquette Golden Eagles and was originally a member of the 2020 college basketball recruiting class, is now reclassifying to be a member of the 2019 grouping instead.
This news was broken all over social media by several reporters; though the school’s official Twitter account did make it known shortly after the reports began to surface.
A 6-foot-3 combination guard, Symir Torrence is from Syracuse. Considering his location, as well as the number of stars already attached to his name, the Syracuse Orange were once assumed to be in the mix for his services. Obviously, we now know that is no longer going to happen.
The youngster, it’s worth noting, committed to the Marquette Golden Eagles way back in January.
Not only do all reputable recruiting service websites have Symir Torrence pegged as a four-star caliber player, but most tend to agree he’s one of the 50 (or so) best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class. Now that he’s a member of the 2019 group, those outlets will need to adjust where he slots, but it shouldn’t be too far of a drop.
Nevertheless, this is huge news for the Marquette Golden Eagles.
