Breaking News: Jabril Trawick Commits to Georgetown

According to The Recruit Scoop, Jabril Trawick, a Class of 2011 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Abington Friends High School in Pennsylvania has committed to Georgetown.

This weekend, the guard went on an official visit to Georgetown. He came out a Hoya. "I just committed to Georgetown," Trawick said by text. Georgetown coach John Thompson III and staff were very pleased with what they saw this summer out of Jabril. They offered during the July live period.

"The coaching staff and the group of players that I will be playing with is a big reason why I chose Georgetown," Trawick stated. "The time we will get on television is awesome and I really like the Verizon Center. There are a lot of connections there, it’s like a pipeline." Jabril will also see some significant minutes early on. "(Current Hoyas) Austin and Chris are leaving and I’m going to fill in." He also commented on the location, "It’s a good location; it’s not to far from home."

As the Philly native is the first commitment for the class of 2011, Georgetown looks to head in the right direction with this commitment. During his official visit, Trawick got to see and experience the Georgetown lifestyle. "I got to play pickup with former Hoya, Roy Hibbert," he stated. "It was a good time."

Here's an interview that Cutting Down Nets did with Trawick early last month.

Questions still remain about why Georgetown is recruiting another guard in the Class of 2011 when the Hoyas will have have Jason Clark, Vee Sanford, Markel Starks, and Aaron Bowen, but nonetheless this is a nice get for the program and hopefully the 1st step in what will be a solid Class of 2011.

Hoya saxa.
