Georgetown basketball has reportedly lost out on a top recruit in the Class of 2012. T.J. Warren, a 6'7'' forward from Raleigh, has elected to stay home and play for North Carolina State over going to Georgetown, according to Scout's Evan Daniels. Warren is a consensus Top 25 recruit (No. 23 on Rivals) and was widely expected to choose the Wolfpack before Georgetown made a late run.
Warren's father also played at North Carolina State, so it's a surprise that Georgetown even made it this far. SB Nation's Georgetown blog Casual Hoya has more on what this means.
Warren has all the makings of a JT3 type of player, with a refined offensive game that includes impressive ball handling and perimeter skills for his size. Though he won't bolster Georgetown's stable of tall and talented small forwards which already includes Otto Porter, Greg Whittington and perhaps Hollis Thompson next season, his decision could leave JT3 to go after a more pressing need: a big man.
