Hoya Saxa! Georgetown Lands 4-Star Recruit Tremont Waters

The Hoyas basketball program received some good news today as point guard Tremont Waters made his commitment official. Considering Waters fielded offers from the likes of Kentucky, Duke, Indiana, and Kansas, John Thompson III should be ecstatic that he was able pull in the talented guard from Connecticut. Up until the last moments before his commitment, many were led to believe that Kentucky or Indiana had the upper hand, but such was not the case.

Player Profile

Standing at 5-11, Waters is a smooth athlete, and even posses what some people call “sneaky athleticism”. Despite his small stature, Waters boasts a stocky frame that allows him to play physical defense. In 15 games at the Nike EYBL Waters averaged 2.4 steals per game, speaking to his ability to play the passing lanes aggressively. The point guard plays the game with steady pace, especially in the pick and roll where he makes some solid reads. Waters does a good job staying low to the floor and always keeps his head up on the fast break, scanning for any open teammates.

He’s gotten favorable comparisons to Tyler Ulis–another diminutive point guard who played with proper pace on offense and was a bulldog on defense. Being that Waters is a very capable shooter from deep and a solid overall understanding of the game, he should succeed in Georgetown’s offense, whatever his role may be.

Impact on Georgetown

After recently opening up the John R. Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletic Center, those around the Georgetown program could sense a positive trajectory. Waters–the lone commit in Georgetown’s 2017 recruiting class–only adds to the upward swing. While Waters likely won’t gain the starting spot next season with Jonathan Mulmore and Tre Campbell being seniors, he’ll be able to learn before he takes over the reigns.

Hoya Saxa!
