InsideMDSports: Terps among latest to offer five-star point guard Tyler Ennis

Special to The Baltimore Sun

2013 Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict's point guard Tyler Ennis is one of the nation's premier point guards. With more than 20 offers on the table, Ennis is taking his time.

Syracuse, Maryland and Memphis are the newest schools to extend offers to Ennis.

"I've lost count," Ennis said. "I know it's over 20 offers now. I'm blown away by all of the attention."

The five-star point guard talked about his newest offers.

"My newest three offers are from Syracuse, Maryland and Memphis. UConn is showing a lot of interest but they haven't offered yet."

No favorites have emerged at this time for Ennis, a native Canadian, but two ACC schools are among the schools recruiting him the hardest.

"I'm wide open right now," he said. "I need to get out and see some of these schools that are recruiting me before I narrow down my list. After my season ends, I'll start getting out to schools.

"Georgia Tech is the school that I'd say is recruiting me the hardest at this point. Virginia is recruiting me really hard as well. Both of them call me a lot and have good relationships with the staffs at both schools."

So far on the season, the 6-foot-3, 180-pound floor general is averaging 17 points and 10 assists.

"It's been a good season so far. I've had four straight double-doubles."

When it comes to narrowing his list, Ennis is looking at a number of factors.

"Like anyone, I want a good situation in terms of playing time. And I want to win games and make it to the NCAA tournament. I also want to have talent in place because I know that will make me a better player," Ennis said with a laugh.

Does the St. Benedict's standout have a timetable for his college decision?

"I will wait until after my AAU season. The plan is to definitely decide in time to sign in November."

An excellent student as well, Ennis maintains a 3.6 GPA.
