Braswell moved to Blythewood from Germnay at the end of his freshman year when his mother, who is in the Navy, was reassigned to Norfolk, Va. He is the first Midlands basketball player to commit to Syracuse since Mike Jones in 2016. Jones left Syracuse after one season before transfering to South Carolina.
The 6-foot-9 Braswell is third member of Syracuse 2018 recruiting class, joining four-star prospect Vernon Carey and Buddy Boeheim, the son of Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim.
Braswell brings depth to Syracuse's front court with only two returning forwards on roster, Oshae Brissett and Marek Dolezaj.
