Class Of 2011 Big Man Tyler Adams Officially Chooses Georgetown

Tyler Adams, the number five ranked center in the recruiting class of 2011, initially gave a verbal commitment to Duke before re-opening his recruitment last week. Early reports said that Adams was leaning towards Georgetown, and now that new has gone official.

According to Adam Zagoria, who runs the recruiting blog ZagsBlog, Adams has committed to Georgetown over Mississippi St. and will join the proud tradition of Hoya big men next fall.

“Basically the situation was we felt that Georgetown would be a better fit for him,” Lonnie Adams, Tyler’s father, said Monday by phone.

He added that the family liked “the reputation of the program [and] all of their big men.

Adams is a 6'8" 260 lb center that Rivals has ranked as the 54th best player overall in the class of 2011. He and fellow recruit, power forward Mikael Hopkins of DeMatha, will form the Hoyas' presumed front court of the future. No matter where he fits in, this is a very good get for Georgetown, particularly if it can be at the expense of another big program. Even more so that it's Duke.


Report: Class Of 2011 Big Man Tyler Adams May Be Coming To Georgetown

According to Tyler Adams is the 54th best prospect in the class of 2011, and the fifth ranked center. Adams had given a solid verbal commitment to play for Duke next year, but it appears that he will re-open his recruiting, according to Jason Jordan. The report comes with a bit of good news for Georgetown fans.

To answer all the questions: No, Tyler Adams won't decommit to recommit. He won't be at Duke. He said GTown has a slight lead right now and that he kinda knows where he's headed. Context clues from our convo tell me he ends up a Hoya.

Prior to his commitment to Duke, Adams considered Georgetown, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Memphis and Mississippi St.; which should give you some idea about the type of prospect he is.  He was recruited by some of the best schools in the country, so if Georgetown is able to land him it will be a pretty big get for the Hoyas.

Because Adams only gave a verbal commitment to Duke and did not sign an official letter of intent, he does not have to jump through very many hoops to make himself eligible to commit to Georgetown. But it's important to remember that the news that he will be joining Georgetown is just speculation on Jordan's part and that Adams has not said anything official to confirm.
