It’s finally official. Georgetown has been added to a long list of offers that were already held by Class of 2013 point guard, Tim Quarterman. They join Florida State, George Mason, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Massachusetts, Memphis, Miami, Missouri, Murray State, Oklahoma, Seton Hall, Texas, and Tulane as the schools essentially asking him to join their 2013-2014 roster. Cincinnati, Florida, South Carolina, UCLA, and Wake Forest also have shown interest, but have yet to offer.
These schools are not the only ones taking in Quarterman’s raised level of play though, as he recently jumped into ESPN.com’s Top 100 as the sixty-fourth best prospect in his class. With all the recent exposure he’s received and the number of coaches that watched him play with the Atlanta Celtics over the summer, you can expect more schools to extend official scholarship offers to this talented point guard.
He has more than ideal size for your average point guard, standing at 6’5″ and weighing 180 pounds. His length comes to his advantage in many aspects of the game, especially on the defensive side of the ball where he uses it effectively to guard the perimeter. Some compare him to Memphis’s Will Barton due to his size and athleticism. Quarterman is a very versatile player as well, thus making him able to play anywhere from the point guard to the small forward positions.
It’s currently unknown on when he plans to make a decision, but one could guess that he’ll hold out for a little while with high-major schools being the most recent to offer. Not only did he receive the offer from Georgetown today, but he announced last week via Facebook that Georgia Tech had offered him as well. Quarterman’s recruitment has been on a constant rise since about mid-June and it may continue to stay that way until the end of his senior season. This young man has a lot to prove this Winter at Johnson High School in Savannah, Georgia, and I fully expect him to continue impressing the scouts and coaches.
