Georgetown Recruiting Targets: Dejon Jarreau and Brison Gresham

Ben Standig

UMass transfers Dejon Jarreau and Brison Gresham are considering Georgetown, Creighton and Seton Hall per Jon Rothstein.

Jarreau and Gresham would have to sit out next season and would then have three years of eligibility remaining. Georgetown has two scholarships open for the upcoming season (maybe three since no one seems to have a straight answer re Trey Mourning) and a whopping six slots in 2018-19.

Per Mass Live:

Jarreau and Gresham, who are close friends and New Orleans natives, were recruited to Amherst by since-fired coach Derek Kellogg prior to the start of this season, headlining one of the strongest UMass recruiting classes in recent history.

Jarreau, a lengthy 6-foot-5 combo guard, was a particularly intriguing prospect, arriving as a four-star recruit. He averaged 9.8 points in 24.4 minutes per game, shooting 45 percent from the floor.

Gresham posted a similar message to his Twitter account. The 6-foot-9 forward played more limited minutes than Jarreau, averaging 3.3 points in 12 minutes per game, but assumed a larger role as the season progressed after missing the beginning of the season while awaiting clearance to play from the NCAA.

The two were recruited to UMass as a package from McDonogh 35, choosing Amherst over Miami (FL).
