Source: Trey Mourning Will Be Back

Trey Mourning will be back with the Hoyas next season, per source. Mourning, the son of Georgetown legend Alonzo Mourning was rumored to have been a transfer candidate prior to the firing of John Thompson III in March.

From the post linked above:

Trey has averaged less than a point and a rebound per game at Georgetown, frequently being confined to a clean-up role at the end of one-sided games. He showed skill in those limited appearances, memorably hitting a couple of jumpers in a narrow loss to Duke in his sophomore year, and then seeing significant run over a close win over Creighton and a failed comeback at Providence, where he tallied his career highs in points (10) and rebounds (5). For some reason—perhaps because of his slight frame, or a crowded front-court rotation—these positive showings never brought Mourning an uptick in playing time, even as coach John Thompson III juggled lineups in search of an answer this season.

Mourning should see an uptick in minutes this season in a frontcourt that can use all of the help it can get. Other than center Jessie Govan and power forward Marcus Derrickson, Georgetown is distinctly lacking in experience and size.

What remains unclear is whether Mourning will occupy a scholarship or play as a walk-on. With George Muresan and Ra’Mond Hines occupying two walk-on slots and yesterday’s commitment by William & Mary transfer Greg Malinowski, the Hoyas still have one available scholarship even with Mourning receiving one.
