Class of 2017 center Chris Sodom has committed to Georgetown, according to a tweet from his high school, Tennessee Prep Academy. Sodom, a 7’3” center born in Nigeria, rates as a four-star recruit according to ESPN and a three-star recruit according to 247 Sports.

Sodom originally committed to the University of New Mexico but de-committed after the firing of coach Craig Neal. Here’s more on his game from a profile published here on Casual Hoya earlier this week:

“At 7-foot-3 with long arms, Sodom is fairly mobile for his size. He runs the floor well and seems like a fluid athlete. Unsurprisingly, he has a limited offensive game at this stage, but he shows decent hands and the ability to catch and finish around the rim. Defensively, it’s easy to imagine Sodom growing into a difference maker down the road with his size and athleticism, particularly if he is able to put a few more pounds on his frame.”

Sodom joins guard Jahvon Blair as one of two high school prospects recruited to Georgetown by new head coach Patrick Ewing, and along with graduate transfer Trey Dickerson and prior commit Antwan Walker, forms part of coach Ewing’s first recruiting class.

The Hoyas still have two open scholarships for the upcoming season.
