More on Sims/Georgetown
Getting a verbal commitment from Baltimore center Henry Sims was a terrific get for Georgetown. Sims, who is 6 feet 11 and 215 pounds picked the Hoyas over Maryland and Virginia.
"He felt like that was the right situation for him," said Pat Clatchey, Sims's coach at Mount St. Joseph. "They're losing most of their frontcourt either this year or next year and have a lot of good perimeter players coming. He felt he had a chance to step in there and play right away.
"He does a lot of things well. He can run, catch, face up and shoot and has good timing. Once he starts to physically mature and get stronger, I think he has a very good chance to be a good player at the next level."
Clatchey said that Sims has never had a regular weightlifting routine. With consistent workouts, Clatchey said he can see Sims getting into the 240-245 pound range. "He's only 16," Clatchey said.
Equally important, it appears Sims has plenty of room to improve. Although last season was his third on the varsity, it was his first as a starter and he was somewhat in the shadows of Maryland recruit Dino Gregory.
