Summers Makes Big East Home

The Georgetown Hoyas now have a pair of commitments – both from current Top 100 players – from the Class of 2006. Their latest commitment came from a local forward, 6-foot-8 DaJuan Summers.

The Georgetown Hoyas accepted a commitment from Baltimore (Md.) McDonough High standout DaJuan Summers. The 6-foot-8 power forward is ranked as the No. 62 prospect in the Class of 2006 by Scout.com. He checks in as the No. 15 power forward prospect.

Summers, an excellent student, will bring a versatile game to Georgetown. After averaging 20.4 points and 11.6 rebounds as a junior, there is little doubt that his game translates well on the college level.

"What I've been doing the past few years is I've been playing inside and outside," Summers said. "I'm tall enough to play the power forward but I'm blessed with some wing skills. I can do both."

The Hoyas are beginning to piece together a fine recruiting class. It began when former IU forward Patrick Ewing, Jr., transferred into the program. It also includes the son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Jeremiah Rivers, ranked No. 90 by Scout.com was the first high school commitment for the Hoyas in 2006.

Summers was able to get comfortable with the Hoyas and then thought of being able to stay close to home wasn't bad either.

"It wasn't like [staying close] was huge in my decision but when I met the coaches and knew there was a lot of good people," Summers said, "That was great. Being close is nice but I just felt like it was the best situation for me."

Summers said he had been interested in Wake Forest, Connecticut and Maryland.
