Examining the potential role for each Big East addition

G Brandon Murray: The LSU transfer is the jewel of Georgetown’s batch of transfers. Murray has NBA aspirations and the game to get there. The 6-foot-5 wing is a strong, sturdy defender who’s offensive game is going to take big strides as a sophomore. Murray is a true three-level scorer who has a chance to be All-Big East.

G Jay Heath: There will be a lot of competition for the starting job, but Heath should have the inside track. The Arizona State transfer shot 43% from 3-point range. But he really has to add more to his offensive game. He shot just 52% at the rim. Heath will get plenty of chances to be a featured scorer at Georgetown.

G Primo Spears: The Duquesne transfer finished his freshman season with a bang, pouring in 30 points against Rhode Island, 34 points against La Salle and 25 points against George Washington. Oh, and he had a combined 16 assists in those three games. Spears should push for major playing time in the Hoyas’ backcourt.

C Qudus Wahab: Patrick Ewing got the most out of Wahab and helped him become one of the most highly sought-after transfers. But things did not work out for Wahab at Maryland and he’s back to rediscover that magic with Ewing.

F Akok Akok: Injuries have limited Akok from showing his true potential as an impact defender and a big man who can make 3s. He will be one of Georgetown’s most athletic forwards, but recovering from an Achilles injury is no easy task.

G Wayne Bristol Jr.: This looks like a sneaky-good addition for the Hoyas. Bristol is a 6-foot-6 wing who shot 40% from 3 for Howard in 2019-20. It’s been awhile since he’s been on the floor, but there’s an opportunity for Bristol to carve out a role if he can knock off the rust.

F Bradley Ezewiro: The LSU product adds some much-needed bulk to the frontcourt. Ezewiro is built like a brick house, so if the forward proves he can defend and rebound, minutes are there to be had.

G Bryan Mozone: The South Carolina Upstate transfer has shot 41.3% from 3-point range over his long career. Mozone splashed 71 3s last year. That will play and he could have a big role as a floor-spacer to open the court for Murray to get downhill to the rim.
