Primo Spears – Georgetown Hoyas

2022-23 season stats: 16.0 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 5.3 apg

As awful as Georgetown was as a team, Spears was one of a couple of bright spots, leading the team in both scoring and passing while playing over 37 mpg. The 6’3 point guard had 10 games of at least 20 points, while also having nine games with at least seven assists as well. That includes a career-high 37 points and 11 assists against Xavier on the road.

Spears isn’t perfect, as he’s a below-average defender and ball-dominant guard that’s also inefficient from the field. However, he’s an elite mid-range shooter and few in college hoops are able to create their own offense as well as the former Hoya can and that works for this roster next to Dajuan Harris in the backcourt.

Something important to note about Spears is that this will be his second transfer. So according to NCAA rules, he has to sit out this upcoming season. Will that remain true remains to be seen but even in that scenario, the guard can sit a year and take over for Harris at point for the Jayhawks.

Kansas is one of four teams in the mix for Spears, along with Florida, Arkansas, and TCU. The Razorbacks have landed four transfers so they’re likely out of the mix, while the Horned Frogs added Delaware transfer, Jameer Nelson Jr. The Gators may also have Tylor Perry from North Texas soon too so a case can be made that this option is the best for Spears.
