Eric Ayala, Elite 2018 Combo Guard, Updates His Recruitment

The talented 2018 guard could be reclassifying.

Eric Ayala, a four-star combo guard, is technically a member of the 2018 recruiting class, but that could be changing.

The 6-foot-5, 180-pound prospect out of Delaware is considering re-classifying into the 2017 class, and several high-level programs are in pursuit of him.

Arizona, UConn, Syracuse and Maryland, among other programs, are currently in pursuit.

Ayala spoke to 247Sports about his potential reclassification.

"I'll probably make a decision after July," Ayala told 247Sports Director of Scouting Jerry Meyer Saturday at the Under Armour Association III event. "I don't really know what I'm going to do as of right this second, but you know I'm still just taking it one day at a time and just trying to take my time with it."

He also said he's "wide open" with his recruitment and mentioned some other schools that are involved.

Ayala has 23 reported offers, but he mentioned Arizona, Oregon, Syracuse, Miami, Indiana, LSU, Kansas, Maryland and UConn as some of his top interests. The guard has taken unofficial visits to UConn, Providence, Syracuse and Miami, but says his recruitment is still "wide open."

Syracuse is currently believed to be the favorite to land him.
