New Jersey-Native and 2013 Forward Reggie Cameron Opts for Georgetown


On Wednesday morning, a decision came in for 6-foot-7 forward, Reggie Cameron.‘s Adam Zagoria first broke the news that Cameron was off the board to Georgetown, verbally pledging to the Hoyas’ class of 2013.

A native of New Jersey, Cameron currently attends Hudson Catholic H.S. (NJ), while finishing up this past summer as a member of the New Jersey Playaz on the AAU circuit.

Cameron visited Georgetown this past weekend, pledging just days after his return to New Jersey. Prior to his decision, the forward was also considering Seton Hall, UConn, North Carolina, Miami (FL), and North Carolina State.

With the call, Cameron represents the first commitment for the Hoyas and head coach John Thompson III from this year’s senior class.

Cameron has risen up the charts over the past year or so, thanks to some stellar play. ESPN lists Cameron at No. 66 overall within the class of 2013, while Rivals pins him at No. 84.

During his weekend visit to the campus, Cameron was hosted by a former member of the New Jersey Playaz, Jabril Trawick, who is now a sophomore at Georgetown. Trawick averaged 3.4 points per game last season as a freshman, but should see an added boost in minutes in 2012-13.

The Hoyas face the difficulty of replacing their top three scorers from a season ago in Jason Clark, Henry Sims, and Hollis Thompson, but Georgetown will transition forward led in large part by the emergence of sophomore forward, Otto Porter.

Georgetown was eliminated in the Round of 32 last season, finishing the year at 24-9 overall.
