Recruiting never ends in the world of college basketball, especially for the Syracuse men's basketball program.

This is an important off-season for the Orange, as they attempt to compile their 2019 recruiting class ahead of the next season.

Jim Boeheim, along with assistant coach Gerry McNamara took a trip to the Capital Region of New York State on Sunday, paying a visit to Joe Girard III.

Girard is a coveted prospect at the moment, holding offers from Duke, Michigan, Oklahoma and Notre Dame, among several others.

Syracuse offered Girard a few months back, even hosting the high school junior at a regular season game from the Carrier Dome.

On Sunday, reports indicated Boeheim and McNamara continued their recruiting efforts on Girard, visiting his home in Glens Falls.

Girard has not given a timetable on his college decision, but the news of Boeheim visiting Girard at his home in Glens Falls goes to show how serious Syracuse is about having the three-star sharpshooter wearing Orange in the near future.
