  • Paul White to Georgetown

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Paul White, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Chicago Whitney Young, committed to Georgetown Sunday morning.

    White had visited Miami and was also considering UConn, Minnesota and DePaul.

    “While on my visit here it made me realize this is the place for me,” White told the Chicago Sun Times. “I felt that comfort level I was looking for with the coaching staff, the players and the environment here. It’s a wonderful school with a great basketball tradition and atmosphere. This was the place I could easily see myself going to school and playing.”

    The Sun-Times pointed out that Georgetown assistant Tavares Hardy, a former Northwestern assistant, played a key role in the recruitment and also helped land another Georgetown recruit, L.J. Peak, who played with White at Whitney Young.

    The staff also showed White film of another former Georgetown star who they feel compares to White.

    “They showed film of¬†Jeff Green, a player they believe has capabilities similar to what I have,” White told the paer. “They showed how he excelled in their system and in their style of play.”

    White joins the 6-5 Peak, 6-8 forward Isaac Copeland and point guard Tre Campbell in the Hoyas’ 2014 class.
