Quick Analysis

Otto Porter

#27

SF (#7)

Porter is very long and has one of the best mid-range games in his class of all the forwards. He is a match-up problem for almost everyone he faces due to his height and he rebounds the ball and runs the floor well too. He is also good on the defensive end on the floor and is a solid ball-handler.

Mikael Hopkins

NR

C (NR)

Hopkins is a long and athletic big man who runs the floor well. He is a great shot-blocker who can score both facing the basket and with his back to the basket. He also has great hands and has a lot of potential.

Jabril Trawick

NR

SG (NR)

Trawick is a great slasher and is strong in getting to the basket. Once he gets into the lane, he nearly always finishes and finishes above the rim strong. He is also a solid defender and can play either wing position if needed.

Tyler Adams

NR

C (NR)

In a class crowded with big men, Adams is the biggest and like the others, is stronger on the defensive end. He is a tough defensive presence and has pillow soft hands you love to see in a big man.

Greg Whittington

NR

PF (NR)

Like Hopkins, Whittington is a skinny, long shot-blocker who excels on the defensive end. He has displayed a developing mid-range jumper lately and adding a productive offensive game will just be a plus for the Hoyas.

Evaluation

This Georgetown recruiting class is full of defensive-minded big men between centers Mikael Hopkins and Tyler Adams and power forward Greg Whittington. All three are tremendous shot-blockers and developing offensive production will simply be a plus for the Hoyas. Georgetown also brings in a great slasher in Trawick who is a rugged, tough, wing that likes to use his body to push others around. However, Porter is obviously the star of this class as he is the only top 50 prospect and has an elite mid-range game. He is a match-up problem for nearly everyone he faces because of his length and athleticism and runs the floor well.
