Canadian Point Guard Jahvon Blair to Visit Georgetown, Meet With Georgia Tech
Canadian point guard Jahvon Blair will take an official visit to Georgetown this weekend, he tells ZAGSBLOG.
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound Blair out of Ontario’s Athlete Institute will also meet with Georgia Tech head coach Josh Pastner on Tuesday.
With Tremont Waters having asked for his release, Georgetown is in need of a floor general for the first year of the Patrick Ewing Era.
Georgia Tech, meantime, missed on Blake Harris (Missouri) but would like to add a second guard to complement Christ the King floor general Jose Alvarado.
Blair averaged 23.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists on a very talented Athlete Institute prep team that also featured Syracuse-bound point guard Howard Washington and Syracuse-bound forward Oshae Brissett.
“I’ll bring 100 percent effort at all times, knocking down my shot and having the ability to shoot the three and the mid-range,” Blair said. “I’m at the best of my game in the open floor being able to push the ball on fastbreaks because I’m great at creating a play for myself and my teammates.”
Blair said Ewing is recruiting him, although Jon Rothstein of FanRagSports.com reported the Hoyas are about to bring aboard former Seton Hall head coach Louis Orr as an assistant.
