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

According to Rivals.com 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.
