With yesterday's update of the Top247 by Jerry Meyer there was plenty of movement among the Hoyas 2014 commitments and targets alike.
Isaac Copeland checks in to the updated Top247 at number 51 in the class of 2014.
In this article we will track the movement among those prospects and give a brief update on what their recruitment is looking like at this point in time.
Isaac Copeland: Copeland checks in to the updated rankings at number 51, a drop of 16 spots from the last release. After speaking with Copeland earlier this week, an interview you can read here, this should not be a worry to anyone. Copeland has been working diligently at improving his all around game and should continue to grow as a player upon his arrival to Brewster Academy.
Tre Campbell: The Hoyas most recent commitment moved up eight spots coming in ranked 140 in the latest update. The St. John's College High School PG has been one of the key contributors for top ranked Team Takeover in the EYBL averaging 6.5 points and a team high 3.6 assists in his 24 minutes per game.
There was also plenty of movement among uncommitted prospects that the Hoyas have extended offers to.
Phil Booth: With Dion Wiley off the board to Maryland the attention of the recruiting world turns to the uncommitted Team Takeover SG. Booth moved up three spots in the rankings to 68th in the class of 2014. As it stands Booth's top group consists of Georgetown, Indiana, Maryland, Villanova, Temple and Ohio State. All of those schools have offered outside of the Buckeyes and one has to wonder how the Wiley commitment will affect his desire to go to Maryland, Georgetown and Villanova seem like the ones to watch here.
Elbert Robinson: Robinson fell ten spots to 90th in yesterday's updated Top247 but is one of the more coveted big men in the class of 2014 nonetheless. As it stands the Hoyas are one of three teams, along with Ohio State and Louisville, in the mix for the power forward from Garland, Texas. Robinson took an official to Georgetown the week of the win over Syracuse and John Thompson III had an in-home visit with Robinson's family towards the end of April. While Robinson hasn't set a decision date his AAU coach, per reports, believes this could happen sometime this fall.
Tre Campbell moved up eight spots to number 140 in the updated Top247.
L.J. Peak: The 6'5" wing from South Carolina recently narrowed his list to five and the Hoyas made the cut. Along with Georgetown the programs battling for Peak's services are South Carolina, Ohio State, Connecticut and Florida State. Peak left his local HS to attend Whitney Young HS in Chicago, Illinois last year but decided to return home to South Carolina, and Gaffney HS, after one year away. At this point in time the Gamecocks appear to be out in front for the in-state prospect.
Zylan Cheatham Cheatham moved up 14 spots to 59th overall in the class of 2014. He is regarded as one of the more athletic big men on the West coast. He received a Georgetown offer not too long ago and spoke with Hoya247 about what that meant to him, you can read that article here. Cheatham has stated recently that Georgetown is among the schools he is hearing from the most along with New Mexico, San Diego State, Southern Cal and Memphis. He informed Hoya247 that he will be making his decision on November 17th.
Khadeem Lattin: Lattin dropped three spots in this set of rankings to 47th overall in the class of 2014. Lattin's group of interests consist of Georgetown, Baylor, Texas, SMU, Louisville and Oklahoma but he has been hearing from Memphis and Texas A&M as they appear to be in the mix as well. Lattin has legitimate interest in Georgetown as he took an unofficial visit during the season when the Hoyas beat Syracuse and is growing a relationship with John Thompson III as he's personally scouted Lattin this summer in the EYBL.
Paul White Paul White fell 24 spots in yesterday's updated rankings. The Hoyas just got into the game with White this week by extending a scholarship offer on Wednesday. The Chicago native holds offers from high majors throughout the country and Arizona has positioned themselves well for the PF from Whitney Young HS. Georgetown should have an opportunity to make some headway here as new coaching hire Tavaras Hardy, who has strong ties in Illinois from coaching the Illinois Defenders AAU program, should be the one handling his recruitment.
Georgetown currently has two open scholarships available for the 2014-2015 season and this group, at this time, stands to be the bunch where the Hoyas will be hoping to pull from to fill those spots. Which players are on your recruiting wish list Hoya fans?
