Former Georgetown commit Tremont Waters could be option for 2017, per report

Interesting development with the former Hoyas commit.

2017 prospect Tremont Waters takes a jumper during an AAU game on the adidas circuit.
USA Today’s Jeff Borzello reported earlier today that Syracuse and Duke will try to get involved with 2017 four-star point guard Tremont Waters.

Borzello cited anonymous sources.

Waters, a 5-foot-11 point guard out of Connecticut, was recently committed to Georgetown before requesting his release.

Over the weekend, Syracuse extended an offer to longtime point guard target Howard Washington, who has high interest in the Orange.

The Orange have also showed interest in Class of 2018 point guard Eric Ayala, who could potentially reclassify to 2017 — but is still undecided.

Waters committed to Georgetown over the likes of Duke, Indiana, UConn and Kentucky back in October.’s Evan Daniels writes that Waters has great ball-handling, passing and is a vicious attacker to the basket. He needs to improve on his 3-point shooting, mid-range game and overall strength — as most undersized point guards do coming out of high school.

It’s worth pointing out that Waters and injured SU freshman Matthew Moyer played together at South Kent last season, which could play to the Orange’s advantage in the recruiting world.

Duke is also after 2017 five-star Trevon Duval. If Duval ultimately chooses the Blue Devils, it would likely eliminate them from contention for Waters.

We’ll keep an eye out on how SU’s pursuit develops in the coming weeks.
