Syracuse, N.Y. – The Orange Basketball squad has lined up their first 2015 recruit.

Tyler Lydon tells the Daily Orange that he has verbally committed to the team which he has been a fan of since he was 12-years-old.

Lydon played three years at Pine Plains High School but is currently enrolled at the New Hampton School where he has been reclassified as a junior.

Lydon is the first prospective Syracuse University student to commit for the 2015 school year.
