2018 Recruiting: Gonzaga offers Buddy Boeheim

You guessed that right, that is the son of Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs officially offered a spot to Buddy Boeheim, a son of the longtime Syracuse Orange coach Jim Boeheim.

The winger guard is a legitimate prospect, although not the most highly rated one. He played at the EYBL Peach Jam, hitting 55 percent of his shots from the floor and over 57 percent of his shots from long range. His squad, the Albany City Rocks, finished 4-1 in the pool play and advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament before their run ended.

The young Boeheim attends Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, which has churned out its fair share of middle-ground NBA players and Topher Grace.

Other than that, there isn’t a lot out there on the coach’s son. And before you immediately write off the option of him not playing for his dad (despite Jim Boeheim saying he’d like to coach for 100 more years), Buddy’s older brother Jimmy committed to Cornell to play basketball.
