LeBlanc chose Georgetown over Texas A&M after eliminating his hometown school LSU.
LeBlanc is the latest in an impressive Class of 2018 recruiting class that head coach Patrick Ewing has been putting together, joining fellow 4-star forward Grayson Carter.
Special shout-out to former Hoya and Louisiana native Darrell Owens, who put in a lot of work with LeBlanc and accompanied him on his visits to Georgetown in September and to Hoya Madness.
“Josh's parents were really impressed with the academic presentation at Georgetown. It is a great academic school and they were focused on that. Also they liked how he would have the chance to compete for playing time right away, and make an impact on the program."
Aside from academics and a favorable depth chart, LeBlanc also felt the idea of playing for a Hall of Famer like Ewing was too much to pass up.
"Playing for Patrick Ewing was huge," said Jones. "He liked how he could develop under Coach Ewing's guidance and he knows what it takes to make it to the NBA."
LeBlanc is ranked as the No. 76 player in the class, and gives the Hoyas an immediate plug and play forward with versatility to play almost anywhere in the frontcourt.”
Welcome to the Hilltop, Josh LeBlanc!
