Patrick Ewing is on the recruiting scoreboard.
The Hoyas have landed 2017 point guard Jahvon Blair, Casual Hoya’s Ben Standig confirmed with CIA Bounce coach Tony McIntyre. The Ontario’s Athlete Institute committed shortly after an official visit this week.
“Pass first point guard,” McIntyre said of the 6-foot-4 left-hander from Canada. “Capable of getting guys involved. Knockdown shooter. 3-point threat. Guy that guys are going to want to play for. MVP of Jordan Brand international a couple of years. ... I think they’re getting a steal.”

Adam Zagoria with Zags Blog first reported Blair’s decision.
