Georgetown has made the list of final 10 schools for 5-star Class of 2019 center Armando Bacot. Bacot visited Georgetown for Hoya Madness last weekend.

One of the most polished big men in America, Armando Bacot, has taken the next step toward making a college decision. A member of the 2019 class and an elite frontcourt prospect, Bacot has narrowed his college list to a group of 10 with plans to visit a blueblood program this weekend.

A 6-foot-9 center with phenomenal hands, Bacot has become known for his premier rebounding abilities, back-to-the-basket skill set and tremendous feel for the game as a high-post passer.

Bacot says his final 10 are Duke, UNC, Kansas, Virginia Tech, Virginia, VCU, Villanova, Oklahoma State, UCLA and Georgetown.

“I thought those were the 10 that I could most see myself actually going to and I didn’t want to set other schools up and waste their time,” he said. “I definitely think those 10 put me in the best spot to possibly get to the next level but also are the best fit for me.”

While 10 have made the initial cut, a group of six has begun to separate themselves from the pack. “Duke, UNC, Oklahoma State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and VCU have all maybe prioritized me a little more than the others,” he said.


Long way to go and with those other schools involved who knows if Georgetown will be a serious contender for Bacot down the road, but initial signs are encouraging for Patrick Ewing and the staff.
