Four-Star 2014 Recruit Isaac Copeland Commits to Georgetown Hoyas
Four-star forward Isaac Copeland from the class of 2014 made a surprise announcement on Sunday by declaring his commitment to the Georgetown Hoyas.
Copeland, who recently told Duke Blogger he has modeled his game after Hoyas Greg Whittington and Otto Porter, has only recently returned from a serious knee injury, but is considered an athletic six-foot-eight power forward with a solid mid-range jump shot with good mechanics.
Scouting reports suggest Copeland could work on some of the big man aspects of his game- namely rebounding and shot blocking- but has the talent required to be a star at the college level.
Copeland had received heavy interest from a number of colleges, including Florida State, North Carolina State and Indiana competing against Georgetown, while North Carolina and Duke had also expressed interest.
“The main ones have been Georgetown, Florida State, North Carolina State, Indiana showing some interest, and so are North Carolina and Duke,” Said Copeland in an interview with Scout.com earlier in the year.
“I really like Georgetown a lot. The entire coaching staff is great and I took a visit there for midnight madness and loved it. I am very interested in them.”
Copeland told Scout.com that his decision would factor into a number of deciding elements.
“I am looking for great academics, a coaching staff I am comfortable with, and a good basketball atmosphere,” he said.
Copeland is the first 2014 class member to commit to Georgetown and is ESPN’s 37th ranked player from the class and Rival’s No. 45th.
