Patrick Ewing got a critical pickup for his first recruiting class as the head coach of the Georgetown Hoyas. South Dakota transfer Trey Dickerson committed to the program on Sunday after a weekend of visits with the program. Dickerson made the announcement on Twitter.

Last season while playing for the Coyotes, Dickerson — a 6-foot-1 guard from Queens, NY — led the team in assists and was third in scoring, averaging 10.4 points and 2.8 assists in 22.3 minutes per game. South Dakota claimed its first Summit League regular season title.
Dickerson was unknown coming out of high school in 2014 when he committed to Iowa. He later transferred from the Hawkeyes in favor of South Dakota. Now after sitting out one season and playing for one season at South Dakota, he will be eligible to play immediately at Georgetown as a graduate transfer.
He will need to improve his outside shooting, making just 33.3 percent of three pointers last season. He has a uncanny ability to drive to the lane with a quick first step. He has a good range of vision that could improve playing around an upgrade of talent.
Georgetown is searching to round out their first full roster under newly hired Ewing. Their search goes on as it’s unclear on Ewing’s coaching staff. Since being hired in April, Georgetown has lost top-recruit Tremont Waters, who was granted his release shortly after Ewing’s hire. Also, Akoy Agau plans to transfer as well as sparingly used Trey Mourning.
