New, 8 comments

June dates to come see the beautiful D.C. campus are filling up—with top talent!

Greetings from Casual Hoya
New season, new approach, new artwork.

With the NCAA allowing recruiting activities to re-opening on June 1, it’s business as usual for Patrick Ewing and his staff.

To many Georgetown Hoyas fans, the recruiting pitch is easy—come play for a Hall of Fame NBA legend, earn an unparalleled education at one of the most well respected academic institutions in the world, and experience a tradition of excellence, family, and social awareness led by the late John Thompson, Jr.

The top recruits will naturally want to flock to Washington, DC to hear first hand about the opportunities that await them. Still, it doesn’t hurt to have one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.

So far, Ewing and his staff have scheduled a few visits, with more coming:

Four-star junior Tyrell Ward discusses latest offers (10/2020) | 247 Sports (Eric Bossi)

A four-star prospect who currently ranks No. 112 overall in the 247Sports 150 for the class of 2022, small forward Tyrell Ward is racking up high major offers. The versatile wing [plays] at Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha who runs the with the New World grassroots...

Georgetown: “They’ve been recruiting a lot of guys in the area and that’s good. I already love Georgetown and have wanted to maybe go there since I was a kid so that could be a dream come true. Patrick Ewing is the one that calls me and he offered me.”

Ward’s progression has been gradual, but steady. He was a football player at first and only started taking basketball seriously after hitting a growth spurt that saw him sprout from 5-foot-4 to 6-foot-2 in middle school. Breaking through at DeMatha is very difficult, but Ward wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I feel like it’s not really difficult to me. I really love the experience,” Ward stated. “Coach Jones makes it tough on us. I wouldn’t want a coach that makes it easy on me. I like when a coach gives me a challenge. At first, I wasn’t playing a lot. So I had to put my nose in the dirt and just work”…

Schools such as Georgia, Seton Hall, Georgetown, LSU, and Virginia Tech are currently involved in Ward’s recruitment. What is he looking for in a college program?

“I like a school that plays at a fast pace. Let me play my game in the open court and do what I do.”

2022 PG Rowan Brumbaugh discusses his development and budding recruitment | 247SPORTS

While the now 6-foot-4, 180-pound point guard out of Northfield (Mass.) Mount Hermon has physically grown, he also has been calculated in his development, targeting specific areas in his game to continue improving. “Definitely my lateral quickness and my agility,” he said of what he has been working on recently. “I’m running in sand, running hills, doing a lot of lateral quickness drills, getting my release higher and my finishing.” When it comes to his game, Brumbaugh is a skilled and high IQ point guard, who can impact the game in multiple ways.

“I’m a true point guard who is a winner and makes winning plays,” he described of his game. “I know who to get the ball to, what call to make and if we need a bucket I can get one.” …

“Georgetown: They let their guards go. They play fast, of course great academics and it’s close to home so good things about that school.”

His coach John Carroll added that, “Rowan is a great point guard, manager of tempo, and players. His high IQ allows him to see the opportunities in the game that other players miss. He knows what calls to make, who needs touches and wants to make the winning plays for the team.”

When asked about a date for committing, Brumbaugh said, “I want to be comfortable and be completely sure when I do it. I want the best fit academically, athletically, and socially, so when I find that, I’ll be able to make a decision. But for now, I just want to continue to improve and work on my game.”

Kentucky to talk with Nick Smith Jr. this week | ASEAOFBLUE

He’s currently a four-star prospect in the 247 Sports Composite rankings and the 26th-best player in the country. Known for his ability to score the basketball, he is able to fill it up from all three levels of the floor, and he also consistently gets to the free-throw line. Smith has good size for the position at 6-4, and uses that length to his advantage on both ends of the floor. Add in solid athleticism, the room for growth as a playmaker, and he could become one of the best shooting guards in the country.

Anglin gives you a very nice combination of skill and being vocal. He’s always one of the loudest players on the floor but also brings you elite skills on both ends of the floor. Speed, great playmaker, can score on all levels, and is also a very capable defender. I’d expect him to add more muscle before his departure to college, but, he has thrived and is deserving of much more attention.

This summer, he will play his AAU basketball with the NY Renaissance. I expect him to create tons of buzz playing with them this Spring and summer, and only time will tell. Anglin has extremely high hopes for this Rens team, saying that they all believe they could go on a run and win Peach Jam this summer.

“It helped a lot,” he said of his development process. “I’ve been training with pros like Shelvin Mack and Tony Delk. Tony helped me with my shot a lot this summer. Shelvin helped me with being a true point guard, before I was a scorer and so we did pick-and-rolls every single day, learning to read the defense and stuff. Those were the biggest things that I worked on.” “I do whatever the coach needs me to do to win,” Clemmons added of his game. “If you need me to score then I can score, if you need me to facilitate then I can facilitate but the thing I do best is scoring.”

On basketball signing day, high schoolers see negative impact of pandemic, college changes (4/14/2021) | The Washington Post

Blue-chip prospects such as Keels and Fudd saw their prospects mostly unaffected by the recent changes to recruiting. For prospects outside of that strata, much of recruiting has been determined by preexisting relationships or fresh tape from the past year. College recruiters have been unable to attend high school games of any kind; the “dead period” that was first implemented in March 2020 has been extended eight times. The entire recruiting process — discovering a player, forming a relationship, visiting a campus — has been conducted over the phone or on Zoom.

“It’s a lot of calls, every single day,” said St. John’s forward Christian Watson, a three-star prospect in the Class of 2022. “Some of the schools that are recruiting me I’ve never met in person. It will be weird seeing them for the first time after talking for months.”

We’ll continue to monitor but, of course, always check out our friend LCPolo’s recruiting and transfer spreadsheet to track all the action.
