Coveted Class of 2022 basketball prospect Chris Bunch announced his commitment to Syracuse live Thursday on CBS Sports HQ as he picked the Orange over Washington and Rutgers. Bunch is ranked the No. 58 overall player and No. 16 small forward in the class by 247Sports. He is Syracuse's fifth commitment of the 2022 class and the highest rated of the group, which will rise from No. 14 to No. 10 in the 247Sports team rankings after Bunch's commitment.

"I decided Syracuse because I felt like it was the best place for me on and off the court," Bunch said. "Education is a big thing for my mother, so I've been trying to stay on top of that. I think being out there at Syracuse, I get to focus on my education.
