Breaking News: Georgetown's John Caprio Declares for NBA Draft

Breaking news out of Georgetown today, freshman walk-on John Caprio has decided to put his name in for the NBA Draft in June.  Caprio, a 6'5" 210 pound swingman, played sparingly at Georgetown in his first year, but impressed when he was on the court.  In six minutes of action spread throughout four games, Caprio averaged 0.5 points while snagging 0.3 rebounds.

The news comes as a bit of a shock to coaches, players and fans alike.  With the graduation of senior guard Ryan Dougherty, Caprio's departure leaves the Hoyas with no walk-ons for scholarship players to make fun of and demolish during practices.  Freshman Nate Lubick will be asked to step up as the only remaining whitey left on the squad. 

Reactions to Caprio's declaration after The Jump.

Coach John Thompson III:

Sometimes walk-ons declare, sometimes they don't.  We'll learn from this and get better.  Players make plays.

Freshman Nate Lubick:

Really?  I mean, I can't be expected to be both Tyler Hansbrough and Mark Titus all in one, somebody needs to call Stepka or get Bryon Jansen back.  Oh God, now I'm the worst dancer on the team. 

Jonathan Givony, Draft Express:

Who?

NBA Agent David Falk:

Looks like that money I gave Syracuse was the right choice.

With Caprio's departure, there are 9 remaining players from Georgetown's 2010-2011 squad that lost in the first "second" round to VCU.  Caprio could not be reached for comment.
