Just when everything appeared to be getting quiet, the Georgetown Hoyas announce that LSU-transfer Bradley Ezewiro will be joining the 2022-23 roster. The 6’8”, 246-lb Californian comes to D.C. via LSU and Oak Hill Academy.
Welcome to the Hilltop, Bradley Ezewiro!#HOYASAXA | @BucketsBradley https://t.co/7RBeMtKLAj— Georgetown Hoops (@GeorgetownHoops) May 10, 2022
Ezewiro did not play a whole lot of minutes at LSU in his one year. More specifically, Ezewiro got 29 minutes in 7 games, where he was 4 for 10 from the field and 3 for 6 from the charity stripe (11 points total). The opponents were all non-conference programs, aside from Georgia where he played two minutes.

The 6-foot-8 forward played 29 minutes spread across 7 games last season as a freshman, scoring 11 points.
Ezewiro is from California but attended Oak Hill his senior season.
Ezewiro is, however, a big body with who had some interesting teams recruiting him. Reports were that he played well at the Peach Invitational with a couple double-doubles. At minimum, Ewing has added some depth at center and forward, with apparently a solid amount of potential.
Nevada Sports Net reported in late April that Ezewiro was down to UAB, Oregon State, and Nevada, but it looks like Nickelberry kept the Hoyas in-touch. NSN also said, of Ezerino:
Ezewiro is originally from Southern California, playing for Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance, Calif., before transferring to Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., for his senior season. As a high school junior, Ezewiro averaged 17.3 points and 10 rebounds per game. After graduating from high school, Ezewiro didn’t play basketball in 2020-21 before enrolling at LSU. He will have three years of eligibility at his next school and can play immediately as a first-time transfer.
The 19-year-old left-hander was a three-star recruit coming of high school. 247Sports.com ranked him as the No. 269 prospect in the 2021 class, picking LSU over offers from USC, Arizona State, Tennessee, Oregon State, TCU, Washington State and Virginia Tech, among others.

“I received a lot of interest from Power 5 schools and had visits scheduled. But when I got the call from Coach Ewing and Coach Nickelberry, in my mind, that’s where I wanted to be. My mom grew up in Virginia and she loved Coach Ewing and Alonzo [Mourning], which made me a Georgetown fan growing up. Being reunited with my guy Brandon Murray just makes it more exciting.
