2013 center Tonye Jekiri visits George Mason

Paul Hewitt and his staff seem to be heavily recruiting centers, the latest is 2013 6'11" prospect Tonye Jekiri, who visited George Mason unofficially this weekend.  It's really early to be talking about 2013 prospects, but the staff has to get after the good ones early and Jekiri is an example of a recruit whose stock could rise quickly.  Hewitt is probably looking to pair a big time center in the future with freshman forward Erik Copes.  If he does the Patriots could end up with a bruising front court that would give the rest of the CAA real problems. Legit centers are very hard to come by for mid-major programs as they area a scarce commodity in college basketball. Landing one who isn't completely raw or under the radar is something we rarely have seen at George Mason or the CAA for that matter.


Another tidbit of news today for Mason basketball is an article by Andy Katz that mentions both Ryan Pearson and Erik Copes as 'players who might end up on the Wooden list':
Ryan Pearson, George Mason: The Patriots are a trendy pick for the top 25 and a lot of that has to do with the versatility of Pearson.

Erik Copes, George Mason: Copes was bound for George Washington before Karl Hobbs was fired, but instead he'll be a headline performer for the Patriots and first-year coach Paul Hewitt.
