Cole Anthony’s mom, author Crystal McCrary, probably best summed it up right after her son’s announcement to go to some other school, saying, “Patrick Ewing... he’s family.” The Georgetown Hoyas receiving only a participation trophy for the Cole Anthony Sweepstakes makes a lot of sense if you go back to the idea that it may have been as a result of the families’ very close ties.
It makes even more sense when you allow yourself to appreciate that Patrick Ewing and staff were not just sitting around waiting for Anthony—they were still chasing some of the top available recruits and grad-transfers, such as:
Terrell Allen (currently on an official visit)
Source: UCF grad transfer Terrell Allen will visit Georgetown on April 22nd-24th. Immediately eligible.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) April 20, 2019
Allen started in all of UCF’s games this season averaging 6.7 points and 4.3 assists. The Maryland native led the team with 43 steals and shot 40 percent from beyond the arc.
David Sloan (just completed an official visit).
Last season at John A. Logan College, as a sophomore, Logan averaged 12 points per game on 48.4% shooting, including going 38.7% from beyond the arc. He was also named Conference Player of the Year and was also an All-Region Selection this year. Sloan would bring solid bench depth to the point guard position behind James Akinjo, and would lessen the pressure on Jagan Mosely to be the primary ball-handler when Akinjo is off the floor.

Recently visited Georgetown
To go with the Hoosiers and Tar Heels, Harris is still considering Georgetown, Maryland and Virginia Tech. He met with the head coaches from all three schools on Friday at Paul VI as well.
Harris is ranked No. 65 overall and the No. 9 combination guard in the 247Sports Composite Rankings... Harris originally signed with Virginia Tech in the fall, but opted to ask out of his Letter of Intent when Buzz Williams left...

Federico Miaschi, a talented 2019 guard from Italy who has a Georgetown offer, says he plans to take official visits in May, with Arizona State, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Minnesota, Oregon State and TCU being the programs he currently is considering for visits #Hoyas— Georgetown Recruiting (@GtownRecruiting) February 20, 2019
Myron Gardner (no recent updates, but took an official visit in October)
An intense competitor with big time athleticism, Gardner plays above the rim in transition and can be a lockdown defender at multiple positions. So far he’s taken visits to Cincinnati, Georgetown and Xavier while Missouri is his latest offer...
Georgetown: “Georgetown was good. I like Coach (Patrick) Ewing a lot. He’s a hall of famer and there’s not anything better than having a coach who played at the highest level and performed to maybe learn from.”
New Highlights On 2019 SF Myron Gardner! Holds offers from Georgetown, MN, Xavier, Cincinnati etc https://t.co/1ze5Z1ogqA— J.T ✈️ (@JustinTarplin) April 4, 2019

The 6’7 195 pound 3 star Power Forward out of Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California, is of course the son of former Bob Huggins’ player at the University of Cincinnati, Kenyon Martin, Sr...
Kenyon Martin, Jr. has offers from Cincinnati, Georgetown, Florida State, Memphis, Oklahoma, Oregon State, USC, Nevada, Memphis, UC-Santa Barbara and West Virginia. The only school that he’s visited so far on an official visit is West Virginia back in October of last year. Rivals FanCast is at 93% for WVU. Martin averaged 16.1 points and 7.9 rebounds per game for Sierra Canyon. Described as a “dunking, rebounding and shot-blocking machine”, his motor and energy are what really sets him apart from other players.
