Syracuse's Jim Boeheim has some competition for the 2018 recruit closest to his heart — his son, Buddy Boeheim.

Buddy, a 6-5 shooting guard from New York, has said he’ll likely wind up at Syracuse to play for his father. Therefore, he hasn’t gained much recruiting attention and only had offers from mid-majors Iona, UMass and Binghamton. That is until Gonzaga offered him earlier this week.

The offer from last season’s national runner-up and perennial power comes after Buddy averaged 13.5 points and shot 55.9 percent from 3-point range at the Nike Peach Jam. His coach from that EYBL team, Jim Hart, told CBSSports.com that Buddy also had discussions with coaches from North Carolina State, Georgetown, Penn State, Northwestern and George Washington.
