Ennis was a borderline top-25 prospect coming out of high school who flourished in one season while leading the Orange to a 25-0 start. The 6-foot-2 point guard averaged 12.9 points, 5.5 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 35.7 minutes per game. He's projected as a first-round lock who could go in the lottery. He's listed 19th in this mock draft.

Syracuse's season ended Saturday with a loss to Dayton.

The Orange finished 28-6.

Now coach Jim Boeheim will wait on a decision from Jerami Grant. The 6-8 forward is, like Ennis, a projected first-round pick. He averaged 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds this season.
