George Mason Basketball: Recruiting Update

Recruiting Update

-Ramon Johnson announced he is taking an unofficial visit to George Mason next weekend. The kid will draw comparisons Jai Lewis among Mason fans with his 6'9" 270-pound build. Seems to be a solid rebounder and inside scorer. You can watch video of him here (he's number 23).  With the addition of Copes and recruits like this I have to say I like that the staff continues to try to bring in more size in the front court.  

-The Patriots' lost the recruiting battle for Jordan Burgess, although I doubt it was much of a battle considering his brother Bradford Burgess was a star player on VCU during their run this past March.

-Here's an interesting one, Mason has offered former Miami commit Chris Bolden, who decommitted following the school's coaching change.  Bolden is a 6'3" shooting guard from Georgia.

-Probably the biggest 2012 name recruit the staff is going after is point guard Charles Mann. ESPN has him in their Top 100 and the 13th ranked PG in the nation.  The Mason staff has offered to him and his bio says he grew up a Georgia Tech fan. Don't know if that helps or hurts Paul Hewitt at this point.  Some highlights of him can be found here.

-Darrick Wood, a 6'3" shooting guard from NJ is a name I came across today. He has a bunch of offers from big schools but the move continues to show that this staff is going after the big fish.  I think it's only a matter of time before we see them land a highly coveted PG or SG for the 2012 class.

-The staff continues to talk to Eric Fanning, who they seem high on.  We talked about Fanning here in our last recruiting update post.

What's the procedure for players to get on the team? I assume we have three scholarships to offer and it looks like we've offered to Donovan Jack, Chris Bolden and Charles Mann. Is there a date for them to accept or do we offer to more and the first three to accept get it?

I for one can confirm the updated settings have made it more difficult to view on mobile phones.

Hewitt isn't wasting time!  That sound you hear is every college in the capital region and every CAA school saying "oh no, Mason ain't playin'!!!"
