Eric Ayala, the 6-foot-5 combo guard from Putnam Science (CT) Academy, has set a timeline for his decision on whether to reclassify to the 2017 class or remain in the 2018 class.

“I’ll probably make a decision after July,” Ayala told 247Sports this weekend at the Under Armour Association event in Los Angeles. “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.”

The 247Sports Crystal Ball favors Syracuse to land Ayala. Syracuse’s 2017 class already includes Bourama Sidibe, Marek Dolezaj, O’Shae Brissett, and Howard Washington. Ayala took an unofficial visit to Syracuse earlier this year (Feb. 13).

“If I feel like I can come in right away in ’17 and make an impact on the offensive end or defensive end, or just the game period, then that will go into consideration,” Ayala said. “People leave, people go, grad transfers all that goes into play in my decision.

Arizona, Oregon, Miami, Indiana, LSU, Kansas, Maryland, and UConn are among the other schools pursuing Ayala. Earlier this month, Ayala received an offer from Pittsburgh.

“Eric changes his mind like the weather,” Tom Espinosa, Ayala’s high school coach told 247Sports. “Sometimes he tells me that he’s definitely coming back. Then he’s going the next day. He doesn’t know right now. If it was up to me, I’d say come back, come back.

According to 247Sports, Ayala is ranked as the No. 2 combo guard and No. 63 overall player in the class of 2017.
