Students begin to filter back to the Hilltop next week, and among them will be senior center Josh Smith. Smith, whose troubled tenure at Georgetown (and everywhere, really) was magnified by a conspicuous absence at Kenner League this summer, is reportedly in good shape and, per a source, fully expected to be on campus. Though there had been some doubt as to whether Smith would return, his now expected presence in the middle for the Hoyas this season will be a huge plus, allowing senior Mikael Hopkins to shift to his more natural power forward position and opening up a number of starting...

With former Hoya target Allonzo Trier now an Arizona Wildcat, I thought it might be a good idea to write another update on the Hoyas 2015 recruiting targets. So, without further ado, here is an update on some of the potential future Hoyas from the Class of 2015, sorted by position. Guards: Tyler Dorsey, 6'4" PG/SG, Maranatha High School (CA) (#24 ESPN, #18 Rivals, #10 247Sports) Ever since Dorsey de-committed from Arizona, the Hoya coaching staff has been keeping an eye on Dorsey, a lead guard with exceptional scoring ability. Dorsey's recruiting picture is still somewhat foggy after his...

While Georgetown's recruiting focus in the Class of 2015 is undoubtedly on consensus top 5 center/forward Ivan Rabb, the coaching staff has also had its eye in firming up the backcourt. One such target is P.J. Dozier, a 6'5" SG out of South Carolina who is currently ranked 29th on ESPN's Top 100. Dozier has cut his list to a final five, and Georgetown is right in the mix: Top 5 ✋ in no order Louisville UNC Georgetown South Carolina and Michigan — PJ Dozier (@Dozier_Kid) August 1, 2014 I will be taking official visits to those 5 schools — PJ Dozier (@Dozier_Kid) August 1,...
