Iona Prep (N.Y.) point guard Ty Jerome recently took visits to GW and UVA, and he says that he liked both schools immensely.
“I really enjoyed both of my visits,” Jerome told SNY.tv. “They are two completely different schools, but I enjoyed both of them. Virginia is in more of a college town, and the campus is beautiful. GW is more in the city.”
The next generation of point guards arrived this summer with Troy Brown, Trevon Duval and Matt Coleman leading the charge, each earning multiple offers from high-major programs.
Brown, a rising sophomore at Centennial (Nev.), ranked No. 2 in the class of 2017 is the highest ranked of the trio thanks to his length and ability to read defenses at the current height of 6-foot-6. It also earned him offers from Duke, UCLA, Arizona, Kansas and UNLV.
