WASHINGTON - Head Men's Basketball Coach Patrick Ewing announced that Georgetown has signed James Akinjo to a National Letter of Intent and that Omer Yurtseven will transfer to the Hilltop.

Akinjo, a 6-0, 160-pound guard will be eligible for the 2018-19 season as a member of the Georgetown Class of 2022.

Yurtseven, a Turkish-born 7-0, 245-pound center will transfer from NC State and will be eligible to play in the 2019-20 season. In his sophomore season, he started 22 of 33 games, averaging 13.5 ppg and 6.7 rpg in 23.8 mpg, which earned him All-ACC Third Team honors.

The three players will join Akinjo on the 2018-19 Georgetown basketball team.
