The Georgetown Hoyas are coming off of a great regular season, yet very disappointing NCAA tournament appearance. Whether the case, there will only be one recruit joining the team in the 2013-14 college basketball season, according to ESPN.
That player will be Reggie Cameron, who is a 4-star and is ranked No. 63 in ESPN’s top 100 recruits for 2013.
Camerson is listed as a 6’7” power forward. Who knows how he will be used in the upcoming season, but it would be great if he made as big of an impact as Otto Porter Jr. did this past season. However, absolutely do not count on that because Porter Jr. was only one of the best players in the country.
As a result of a great season, Porter Jr. declared for the 2013 NBA Draft, which is a huge loss for Georgetown, but players going pro early happens on a yearly basis in college hoops.
Many players will have to step up, and Markel Starks seems like the most likely candidate to step up the most by being the go-to guy. Starks averaged 12.8 points per game this year and he also shot a very impressive 41.7 percent from behind the arc. With that kind of accuracy, Georgetown should keep letting Starks fire away because he is bound to sink a few threes a game.
It is interesting that only one freshman will be joining the team, but that does not mean that the Hoyas’ future is in jeopardy or anything like that. They at least got a very talented player to join the team, who you would assume would make a big impact at some point in his college basketball career.
