Late rising forward picks Georgetown

The Georgetown Hoyas got more good recruiting news on Tuesday as they landed a very solid three-star pledge.

The Georgetown Hoyas got more good recruiting news on Tuesday when three-star power forward Antwan Walker picked the school. Walker, who is doing a post grad year at Hargrave Military Academy, really burst onto the scene with an impressive showing as a senior at H.D. Woodson High School. Walker chose the Hoyas over Virginia Tech.

As a senior at H.D. Woodson Walker was the DCIAA Player of the Year and put up big numbers. He averaged 16.5 points, 13 rebounds, and 5 blocks per game as Woodson went undefeated. Georgetown began recruiting Walker hard, and that paid off with a commitment on Tuesday.

"Georgetown has always been Antwan's dream school," said Hargrave Head Coach A.W. Hamilton. "When he took his visit he fell in love with the coaches and players, and it just felt like the perfect fit."

Hamilton continued, "Antwan is one of the toughest players in the country. He will continue to develop his skill set over the courtse of this year which pull put him in position to help Georgetown immediately."

This is the second commitment for the Hoyas as they also added four-star Tremont Waters last week.

Walker is a good fit for the Hoyas as he is an excellent athlete with a good motor that has a quickly developing outside jumper. He has made a lot of strides with his game over the past 12 months, and could be someone who makes a big impact for the Hoyas.
