Denver Anglin has made a significant decision just a few days after assisting his NY Rens AAU team to the semifinals of the prestigious Nike Peach Jam.

Gill St. Bernard's' 6-foot-1, 175-pound Class of 2022 point guard has verbally committed to Georgetown and head coach over Providence, UConn, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Xavier, and Stanford, according to NJ Advance Media. He is named the No. 22 combo guard in his class by 247Sports.com and intends to sign his national letter of intent during the early signing period in November.

"I just thought that was the best situation for me as a system and with the coaches," Anglin said in a phone interview ahead of his public announcement.

Anglin said that "they want me to play the one," "they want me to come to school and make an impact very quickly." We haven't talked about whether or not, but [Coach Ewing] just knows how much I contribute to the table offensively, defensively, and leadership-wise, so he just emphasised that part."

Anglin completed the season with 25 points in three of Gill St. Bernard's first five games, including his greatest performance, including 30 points, five assists, and nine assists. He also led the season with seven assists against Bergen Catholic.

Denver has the ability to play both the 1 and the 2, according to Gill coach Mergin Sina. Hes a gifted athlete who shoots at an elite level and plays both ends of the floor.

Anglin led the NY Rens to nine points with five assists in their quarterfinal victory against Team Durant at the Peach Jam. He scored 11 points in the featured Blair Academy guard Otega Oweh and Roselle Catholic guard.

"I think getting to the semis, we were only scratching the surface in terms of winning," Anglin said. "I'm trying to make a great run in the NCAA Tournament with Georgetown, and if I get into those kinds of situations again, I'll know how to deal with it and hopefully come out with the win."

I love Denver, NY Rens coach Andy Borman said. He was our heart and soul down the stretch at Peach Jam. He will be an absolute difference-maker on and off the court in college.

Anglin is Georgetown's first commit in the Class of 2022, and his verbal promise comes the same week that Chris Livingston, a four-star small forward, will get an official visit Saturday. Besides, a four-star small forward, Christian Watson, of Washington, D.C., is considering, Georgetown, Marquette, and Miami, among others.

Anglin will travel to the Big East and play for Ewing, something he is looking forward to following his senior season.

"It's an honor," says a man. "It's really cool for him to take me under his wing and just learn everything from him. I'm constantly striving to make the league competitive, and what's better than learning from a guy who has already arrived?
