Things continue to get bad for Georgetown as four-point point guard Tremont Waters has requested release from the school on Saturday, according to ESPN’s Adam Finkelstein.
After a disappointing season for the Hoyas, which ended in a heartbreaking loss to St. John’s in the Big East Tournament, Waters decision makes things worse for the program.
Waters became the Hoyas highest recruit since Isaac Copeland, who is transferring to Nebraska, when he committed in October and signed in November during the early signing day period.
Waters is one of the top point guards in the 2017 class as he is ranked the No. 33 player in the ESPN Top 100. 247sports has him ranked the No. 9 point guard in the nation and the second best player in Connecticut.
Waters was considering Duke, Kentucky, Indiana, and Kansas when he made the decision to go to Georgetown. Now that he is in the open market, expect schools to make a strong push for Waters.
