JT3 Offers Glimpse Into Next Season

Stephen Dunn

Georgetown coach John Thompson III appeared on "The Tim Brando Show" this morning on Sirius radio and offered up a few intriguing quotes regarding the Hoyas next season in an interview with Jon Rothstein. The highlights are pasted below from Rothstein's twitter feed:

The most interesting of the above concerns transfer center Josh Smith, whose eligibility for the upcoming season has been a question since he transferred to Georgetown last December. It would seem based on JT3's comments that he expects to have Smith in a Georgetown uniform and making an impact for the Hoyas this season, but whether that will occur in 2013 or in 2014 as "next year" would seem to indicate is still a question until Georgetown hears definitive word from the NCAA regarding his waiver.

The NCAA will rule that Smith will be eligible to play for Georgetown in the second semester of this season (technically next year) OR for the full season in 2014-'15. Since Smith has already sat out a semester and likely has designs of playing in the NBA as soon as possible, I would guess that the second semester of this upcoming season will be his only playing time in Blue and Gray.

Its also good to hear that JT3 is high on incoming freshman Reggie Cameron, who seems primed to push for minutes along with sophomore Stephen Domingo at the small forward spot.
