WASHINGTON - Georgetown Men's Basketball Head Coach Patrick Ewing announced that Georgetown has signed three student-athletes to National Letters of Intent in the early signing period.
Ewing has signed 6-9 forward Grayson Carter (Dallas, Texas/Bishop Dunne), 6-6 forward Josh LeBlanc (Baton Rouge, La/Madison Prep Academy) and 6-2 guard Matthew "Mac" McClung (Gate City, Va/Gate City High School). The three players will be freshmen on the 2018-19 Georgetown basketball team.
Carter is a four-star recruit and ranks as the 10th best center in his class according to ESPN. LeBlanc, also a four-star recruit is listed as an ESPN Top 100 Player in the class of 2018. McClung is ranked ninth best player in the state of Virginia.
"My staff and I are pleased to add these talented young men to our roster," said Ewing. "I feel that all three can make an immediate impact to our program and I look forward to coaching them next season."
Ewing on 4-star Carter: "Grayson is a versatile front court player with a high skill set; a good two way player that will provide depth in the front court."
Ewing on LeBlanc: "Josh is a very skilled, high energy player who can change the game defensively. He has a great offensive skill set on the wing and a motor that never stops. He is my type of player - he has a nonstop work ethic, which I love in a player. I am counting on Josh to be an overall leader on our team."
Ewing on McClung: "Mac brings a different dynamic of athleticism to the floor. He is electrifying out on transition and he will be able to create for himself and others in the half court. I'm looking for him to provide leadership for our team from the point guard position."
