Corey Evans of HoopSeen reported Tuesday that three-star forward Antwan Walker has decided to join Georgetown next season.
Walker, out of Hargrave Military Academy in Washington D.C., had made a pair of visits to Virginia Tech as recently as last weekend, and he reportedly gave the Hokies strong consideration after receiving an offer from them back in April. He visited Georgetown unofficially back in June before ultimately deciding to commit. Georgia Tech also showed strong interest.
Walker becomes the second recruit in the 2017 class to give the Hoyas a hard commitment in the last week. Five-star guard Tremont Waters, currently ranked by ESPN as the 32nd-best prospect in the country, announced his decision on Oct. 19.
Walker, who is listed at 6-foot-7, is said to be extremely athletic and plays with plenty of energy. He averaged 16 points and better than 10 rebounds per game for H.D. Woodson last season in helping them to a 31-0 regular season record.
Georgetown fell on hard times last season, finishing just 15-18 overall and failing to qualify for a postseason tournament for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign. The Hoyas finished eighth in the Big East with a 7-11 mark and did not advance beyond the quarterfinals of the conference tournament. It was just the fourth time in 12 seasons under head coach John Thompson III that the team failed to win at least 20 games.
Thompson and the Hoyas are far from finished on the recruiting trail. They are also reportedly still involved with the likes of five-star forward Troy Brown, four-star guard David Beatty and three-star guard Jamir Moultrie.
