The spoils of Saturday's triumphant win over Syracuse have spilled over to Sunday, as 4-star Class of 2014 forward Isaac Copeland has committed to Georgetown:

Copeland, who was at the game yesterday, is ranked 37th in ESPN's Top 60 players in the Class of 2014. In an interview with the site Duke Blogger, Copeland says he has modeled his game after both Greg Whittington and Otto Porter, which is certainly welcome news for Hoyas fans.
He's just now (2012) returning to action after a knee injury from the high school season. Isaac is a long and lean and has an athletic frame. Right now he's most comfortable facing the basket shooting jumpers. He does posses a soft shooting touch, mid range accuracy and good shot mechanics.
Needs to engage himself into other aspects of the game such as rebounding and blocking shots while going inside on offense.
This is a kid whose talent trumps his accomplishments on the floor. He has game but could be in need of an extra year of seasoning in order to truly cement himself and gain the confidence needed to be a Division I player.
Copeland is the first Georgetown commit in the Class of 2014:
2014/15 - Moses Ayegba (RS), Aaron Bowen (RS), Jabril Trawick, Mikael Hopkins, Tyler Adams, Greg Whittington, Otto Porter, Brandon Bolden, D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Bradley Hayes, Stephen Domingo, Reggie Cameron, Josh Smith (TBD), Isaac Copeland.
Welcome to Georgetown, Isaac Copeland.
