The Georgetown Hoyas have certainly been active in the recruiting realm this weekend. The activity continued on Sunday, as they offered one of the top 2020 guards in the country. Brian Snow of Scout.com reports that the Hoyas are now in on shooting guard Ché Evans Jr.
Class of 2020 prospect Che Evans has been offered Georgetown https://t.co/DmmKvBg0li— Brian Snow (@BSnowScout) October 15, 2017
Evans is already listed at 6-foot-6 entering his sophomore season. At 195 lbs., he already has quite a big frame with two more years until he hits the college game. And he’s already making waves one year in. He was named a MaxPreps’ Second Team All-American, joining other celebrated high school freshmen like Jalen Green, Jaden Springer, Nimari Burnett and Jamal Mashburn Jr.
Evans was also highlighted in an article on ESPN’s The Undefeated prior to his freshman season.
Ché is just the second class of 2020 player that Georgetown has offered in that cycle. The only other hooper to receive an offer from the Hoyas is Earl Timberlake. Like Evans Jr., Timberlake is a native of Maryland too, hailing from Upper Marlboro where he attends Clinton Christian School. It’s not a surprise to see Patrick Ewing and his staff attack the DMV, as it continues to be a hotbed for talent. Plus, it’s local of course.
He currently attends Dulaney High School in Lutherville Timonium, Maryland. At the moment, he ranks fourth among all prospects in his home state. Hunter Dickinson (DeMatha Catholic), Elijah Wood (St. Andrews Episcopal) and Earl Timberlake (Clinton Christian) are the lone players ahead of him. He also ranks 14th among all shooting guards and 55th overall in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
As of now, Evans has offers from 10 schools now that the Hoyas have offered. Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, UNLV and TCU are among those who’ve offered. Also, fellow Big East rep St. John’s is in the mix, as are Boston College, Old Dominion and Penn State.
