Georgetown went through a major roster turnover this offseason with the new hiring of Coach Ed Cooley from Providence. Cooley brings a winning culture to Georgetown which has been lacking the last few seasons. Despite the major roster turnover, the Hoyas do return a few players from last seasons team.
Ryan Mutombo, the son of Dikembe, is returning this season. He played sparingly last season, and he will likely be further down the depth chart again this season. However, he has great size at 7-2 and as a former 4 star recruit, he does have the upside. Also returning to the Hoyas is Wayne Bristol who also played sparingly and previously played at Howard.
Jay Heath is the only projected returning starter for the Hoyas this season. He is possibly the best three point shooter on the team. He is expected to have a similar role to last season, but in a system that fits him better. The former Boston College and Arizona State guard has some of the most experience on the team. He will have to take on more of a leadership role being only of the only returning impact players. Even though it’s a new system he’s playing in, Heath still understands the Hoya culture and what comes with playing at Georgetown.
The Hoyas made some fantastic additions in the portal as well. Most notably Jayden Epps, a transfer from Illinois. Epps is expected to slot into the starting point guard position, he was only a freshman last year and had a very productive season in the Big 10. Epps will be backed up by Texas transfer Rowan Brumbaugh who redshirted this past season and is a native of Washington DC. Brumbaugh is a very productive player and could surprise many people in the Big East this season.
The remaining transfer added by the Hoyas this offseason are: Supreme Cook, Ish Massoud, and Dontrez Styles. Massoud is a transfer from Kansas State who adds value from beyond the arc for the Hoyas. At 6-9, Massoud is a career 37% three point shooter and even shot 42% this past season. Styles is a transfer from North Carolina who played sparingly in his 2 seasons with the Tar Heels. He is a former 4 star recruit and is valuable on the defensive end. Supreme Cook, a Fairfield transfer, fills a need that the Hoyas needed all offseason. They needed to add size to the interior and the last minute portal add in Supreme Cook helps in that department.
Georgetown also added 2 freshman both named Drew. 4 star PF Drew Fiedler who was previously committed to Providence and followed Ed Cooley to Georgetown. The other commit is Drew McKenna a 3 star from the DMV area. Both are looking to crack the 8-9 man rotation the Hoyas will be running with this season.
Expectations are fairly low for the Hoyas in Ed Cooley’s debut season. After having years that many Hoya fans would like to forget, Cooley brings a culture that can turn the Hoyas around in just a couple seasons. Georgetown made many interesting additions this offseason that make them an intriguing team. A realistic goal for the Hoyas this season would be to be at or above .500. Also they should try to make a push for the postseason whether that be the NIT or CBI.
