Tremont Waters asks for release from Georgetown

And now, for an interesting recruiting nugget: four-star point guard Tremont Waters has asked to be released from his National Letter of Intent to Georgetown. Waters was a Kentucky recruit before committing to the Hoyas in October, but Georgetown has been so bad this season that he wants to play his college ball somewhere else.

Kentucky already has two point guards in the 2017 class in Quade Green and Shai Alexander and a shooting guard in Hamidou Diallo, but would Calipari be interested in picking up Waters if Georgetown grants his release? He’s got a reputation as a good shooter, and Kentucky will be in desperate need of those next season. Prior to signing with Georgetown, Waters also had UConn, Duke, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, and Yale on his list.

Something to keep an eye on…

    Coach K was probably still recruiting him and got him to flip like Rivers from Florida.

    If he can shoot, we’ll need him…

    Remember hoping badly we would get him because he looks like Ulis but more of a scorer and less of a passer, hard to say if he’ll be as good as Ulis but we could certainly use him off the bench next season.

    Couldn’t play next season. Would have to sit out 1 for transferring

      He’s not a transfer, he’s still a high school senior

    Tremont Waters is quality goods.

    The question is does he really want to be Tyler Ulis (takes a couple of years). And I don’t have stats on his shot but his form looks good (so no guarantees).

    An additional follow up here… Tyler Ulis is and was WAY ABOVE HIS BBALL IQ RATING.

    Like way above it. Where it takes most 18 year old 8 years to gain a NBA PG view Tyler was there at 19. That is extremely rare. Says a ton about his relentless pursuit… determination… and perseverance.

    If you have this Tremont… Tyler showed you it can happen at Point Guard U for a smaller guard.

    We need another guard badly, this would be perfect
