The Georgetown Hoyas jumped out and sent offers to two class of 2019 players on Thursday.

Five-stars Vernon Carey and Keion Brooks were offered by the Hoyas, putting two of the most talented players for 2019 under their microscope now. The news of these offers comes from recruiting analysts Pat Lawless and Corey Evans.

Vernon Carey is a name you’re likely going to hear a lot about going forward. Why? Well, he’s the second-best player in the class of 2019 at this point, with only Montverde Academy small forward R.J. Barrett listed ahead of him. Carey currently hails from Fort Lauderdale and is listed at 6-foot-9 and 245 lbs.

He’s a power forward, the best in 2019 right now, and at 16 is already getting plenty of attention. He’s received offers from the Miami-Florida Hurricanes (who, for what it’s worth, lead his Crystal Ball), Florida Gators, UConn Huskies, Florida State Seminoles among a slew of others.

Brooks, meanwhile, is the top player in the state of Indiana right now for 2019. The Fort Wayne native is above the likes of DePaul commit Tyger Campbell (who, of course, will be reclassifying for 2018), Dexter Shouse and Isaiah Thompson among others.

He ranks seventh at small forward, with the aforementioned R.J. Barrett leading that group with D.J. Jeffries (Olive Branch, MS), Matthew Hurt (Rochester, MN), Cassius Stanley (Studio City, CA), Trendon Watford (Birmingham, AL) and Christian Brown (Columbia, SC) standing in front of him. He ranks within the Top 20 nationally, sitting at 18th at the moment.

The Michigan State Spartans (who lead the way so far for him in his Crystal Ball), Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas Jayhawks, Xavier Musketeers and the UCLA Bruins among others are currently in on Brooks, and that list should be expected to grow with Brooks’ talent being taken into account.
