Five More Announced For 2016
The Georgetown football office announced five additional recruits to join the Hoyas in 2016, including two transfers.
The timing was unusual in that many such announcements take place in the school year or upon roster departures at year's end, but neither was cited in the release.
"We are all very excited to welcome these five student-athletes to the Hoya football family," said coach Rob Sgarlata. "All five will add to the quality of our program on and off the field. I cannot wait to get them working with the rest of our team when training camp begins in August."
Each of the five had previously announced a commitment to Georgetown in the spring. They include:
Leon Agee: A 6-0 DB from Laurel, MS, Agee chose Georgetown over an offer at NCAA Division II Mississippi College.
Michael Dereus: A 6-1 WR from Hyde Park, MA, Dereus played a prep year at Williston-Northampton School after his high school career at Brighton HS.
Chris Gavin: Recruited to VMI as a running back in 2015, the South Carroll (MD) graduate is listed as a linebacker prospect on the Georgetown release. Gavin will have four years of eligibility remaining.
Cameron Seward: A 6-1 DB from Atlanta, Seward signed with Boston College in 2014 over offers from California and Mississippi State. He saw action in one game in 2015. Seward will have three years eligibility at Georgetown.
Justin Wood: A 6-4, 270 lb. LB, Wood played at Loyalsock Township HS in Williamsport, PA and was an all-conference recipient as a senior.
The 2016 roster has not been released to date.
