At Big East Media day, Georgetown was predicted to finish 10th in the conference. The slight was predicated primarily on the fact that a youth movement on the hilltop is in full swing.

Gone are four year stalwarts Chris Wright and Austin Freeman. Taking their place will be a collection of highly touted freshman, proving once again that while questions swirl whether John Thompson III can coach, there is no doubt he can recruit.

Before Georgetown tips off this year, fans will have to flip through the media guide to familiarize themselves with all the new faces.  

Three players that shouldn't take too long to get to know are Otto Porter, Mikael Hopkins and Greg Whittington. These three freshmen studs along with senior leader Jason Clark and rising star Hollis Thompson will help the Hoyas far outshine the low preseason expectations.
