Georgetown Basketball secured another commitment yesterday from Otto Porter, a power forward from Sikeston, Missouri who picked the Hoyas over the likes of Kansas and Missouri. Porter joins Tyler Adams, Greg Whittington, Mikael Hopkins and Jabril Trawick in what is looking like a pretty strong recruiting class for the Hoyas.

The news of Porter's commitment puts a cap on an outstanding recruiting class that had previously looked bleak after assistant coach and lead recruiter David Cox left for Rutgers over the summer. Over the past ten months, John Thompson III and his staff, which includes new assistant coach Robert Kirby, have quietly put together an impressive incoming class consisting of three Top 100 ESPN recruits, The Washington Post All-Met Player of the Year, and a former Duke commit (obviously not ranked anymore). The incoming class is extremely long, lean and athletic and able to play a variety of positions, which is perfect for Thompson's system.
