Just after I had put Casual, Jr. to bed and was settling in to watch the latest episode of Real Housewives of Orange County with a tub of ice-cream, news broke on twitter that Georgetown had offered a scholarship to Zylan Cheatham, a 6'8" small forward from Phoenix, Arizona.
Georgetown is the latest to extend an offer to 2014 Cali Supreme (CA) forward Zylan Cheatham, he says— Garrett Tucker (@GTuckerF150) May 14, 2013
Cheatham is currently 78th in ESPN's Top 100 prospects for the Class of 2014 and has a host of offers already, but all from West Coast programs. Cheatham has been in described in some scouting reports as a point forward who is an excellent passer, skills that would seemingly mesh perfectly into John Thompson III's offense at Georgetown.
If he ends up attending Georgetown, Cheatham would be the second forward in the 2014 class, joining Isaac Copeland who committed to Georgetown in March. In addition to Copeland, Georgetown has already secured the commitment of point guard Tre Campbell and is one of the finalists for 6'10" center Elbert Robinson along with Ohio State, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Louisville.
A 2014 class that includes Copeland, Campbell, Cheatham and Robinson would be, dare I say, quite casual.
