2017 PG Javon Greene commits to George Mason

Point guard prospect Javon Greene visited George Mason campus this weekend and apparently didn’t need to take any other visits. He announced on twitter last night that he will commit to George Mason and be apart of the 2017 recruiting class:

It was important for Dave Paulsen and his staff to get another point guard in this 2017, as Marquise Moore is getting ready to play his final season. Greene is known as being able to create plays and having excellent court vision. Some have mentioned him as one of the best point guards in the state of Georgia. He looks to be an excellent back up to Otis Livingston and will be another solid ball-handler in Mason’s future back court.

This is another smart, high basketball IQ guard, that Paulsen has added in his short time here in Fairfax. Mason’s back court is quickly getting more talented and deep as the days go by under this coaching staff. The program has struggled for over four years trying to find some stability at the point guard position and Paulsen has already seemed to have righted the ship in that area.

Greene joins Goanar Mar in Mason’s 2017 class.

AJ Wilson will redshirt the 2016-17 season

Late addition to the 2016 recruiting class AJ Wilson will redshirt this season, according to Corey Evans of Hoop Seen:

Given all the young players on this team it makes sense that someone would be redshirting this season. Wilson was considering an extra prep year of school before heading to college anyway. Now he gets to come in this fall and develop his game with the coaching staff before stepping up to the college ranks. In 2017, he and Goanar Mar will definitely help to revamp the front court and overall be tougher on defense.

Dave Paulsen, who said he wanted to make a point to recruit local when taking the George Mason job, has landed local recruit AJ Wilson. You may remember me mentioning recently on twitter that Wilson was undecided between coming to George Mason as a 2016 recruit or doing a year of prep school. Mason just won that recruiting battle and they will add immediate help up front and on the wing with Wilson.

Otis Livingston and Jaire Grayer shining in Kenner League

Sophomores Otis Livingston II and Jaire Grayer seem to be having a good summer playing in the Kenner League at Georgetown:

The development of these two guards is something that will be pivot to next season’s success. Both were starters last season and played a ton of minutes by freshman standards. They were streaky shooters at times but when they got hot Mason’s offense was rolling.

From HoyaReport.com:

Otis Livingston, Jr. – Higher Level, 5’11”, 180 pound sophomore point guard, George Mason – A good driver, Livingston was on the controls. Ran the show. Scored 14 points.

Should become more of a knock down shooter.

Now with confidence and some the development of their outside shooting I think they will soon be able to hang with any guards in the Atlantic 10.
