Georgetown Adds Three to Men's Basketball for 2016-17 Season

Rodney Pryor (r) transfers from Robert Morris to Georgetown

From our friends at Georgetown Athletics...

Three student-athletes signed National Letters-of-Intent and will be part of the Georgetown University Men’s Basketball team for the 2016-17 season.

The Hoyas will add one incoming freshman, as well as two transfers, one from junior college and one graduate student. In addition to those three, GU will welcome back center Bradley Hayes (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood) who was granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA last week.

Joining the men’s basketball team next season will be freshman Jagan Mosely (Morganville, N.J./St. Anthony) junior college transfer Jonathan Mulmore (New Orleans, La./Redemption Christian) and graduate student Rodney Pryor (Evanston, Ill./Robert Morris/Notre Dame Prep.)

Pryor, who transfers to Georgetown from Robert Morris University, was an All-Northeast Conference First Team selection in 2015-16, and was selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) District 18 Second Team. He finished his senior year at Robert Morris leading the Colonials in scoring and rebounding, averaging 18.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game. He ranked second and sixth, respectively, in the NEC in those categories.

Pryor also ranked third in the conference in free-throw percentage (.863) eighth in steals (1.43 per game) ninth in three-point field goals made per game (1.75) and tied for 14th in blocks (0.79.) He had eight double-doubles last year. In addition, he was named the 2015 NEC Tournament Most Valuable Player after leading RMU to the championship and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Mulmore comes to Georgetown after spending two years at Allegany College in Maryland. He capped off a stellar two years by being named to the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I All-American Second Team.

Behind the play of Mulmore, Allegany went 17-10 this season and earned berths in the Maryland Junior College Tournament, as well as a runner-up showing in the Region XX Tournament. He earned first team honors to the All-Maryland JUCO and All-Region XX teams, and is the first player from Allegany to earn All-American honors since 2010.

Mulmore set a new school record, averaging 26.1 points per game, while adding 5.9 assists and 4.3 rebounds.  His 26.1 scoring average, as well as his 254 free throws made, ranked second in the country for all of Division I.

Mosely was named the New Jersey Player of the Year by after leading St. Anthony’s to a 32-0 record, the state title and a No. 4 ranking nationally. He averaged 14.2 points per game, along with five assists and seven rebounds per game. Mosely played for Team East in the Jordan Brand Classic and was a member of the U.S. All-Stars in the Capital Classic.
