Kahlil Whitney received an offer from the Georgetown Hoyas on Saturday. Whitney announced the offer on his Twitter account on Saturday. He becomes the 14th player to receive a scholarship offer from Georgetown in the 2019 recruiting cycle.
After attending Solorio Academy in Chicago, Whitney recently transferred to Roselle Catholic in New Jersey. Roselle Catholic is one of the premier basketball prep schools in the Northeast, and recently has been home to some of the best recruits in the country. Namely Nazreon Reid, Nate Pierre-Louis, Malachi Richardson and Isaiah Briscoe. Whitney also played for the Mac Irvin Fire while he was in the Chicago area.
As you can imagine, he is one of the top players in the state of New Jersey. Whitney ranks fourth among all New Jersey prospects according to 247Sports Composite. The three ahead of him are five-stars Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine of Ramney School in Eatontown as well as Precious Achiuwa of St. Benedict’s in Newark. That’s pretty good company to be in.
Additionally, Kahlil ranks 13th among all small forwards in the class of 2019 and 53rd overall in the nation.
That he received an offer isn’t too surprising. He had been on an unofficial visit to the Georgetown campus. Whitney also took an unofficial visit to see the St. John’s Red Storm last week and received an offer then. So, it’s fair to say that he’s making the rounds as he trends upward.
Plenty of high-major schools have been sending him offers lately. Syracuse, Oregon, Oklahoma State, UConn, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Virginia Tech and Rutgers are currently in on him. In addition, UIC, SMU, Saint Louis and New Mexico State have offered him too.
