The New Haven, Conn. native is listed at 5-foot-11. He is ranked as the No. 33 player in the nation by ESPN. On March 11, Waters asked to be released from his letter of intent just prior to the firing of coach John Thompson III.
Despite the school hiring Patrick Ewing as Thompson’s replacement, Georgetown granted him the release. However, Ewing has expressed interest in getting Waters to re-commit to the Hoyas.
Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show Thursday, Ewing stated he would meet with Tremont and his father, Ed, Friday in attempt to recruit Waters back to Georgetown.
“I don’t think it’s going to be that much difficult,” Ewing said of the recruiting process Wednesday on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption. “It’s all about selling yourself, selling your program. This is a great University, I think I’m a very good coach. I’m just going to have to go out there and sell myself.”
Prior to his commitment to Georgetown, Waters held offers from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Yale, and home state Connecticut.
