Georgetown's 2015 recruiting class just became bigger in more ways than one.

The Hoyas received an oral commitment from 6-foot-8, 255-pound center Noah Dickerson on Sunday. The Atlanta native who plays for prep powerhouse Monteverde (Fl.) is the No. 33 overall player in the 2015 class per ESPN.

Dickerson becomes the second member of coach John Thompson III's 2015 recruiting class. Power forward Marcus Derrickson from Paul VI committed to the program in October. This duo follows a highly-touted five-member group headed to the Hilltop this coming season. Headlined by forwards Isaac Copeland and Paul White, the 2014 class reportedly ranks among the nation's 10 best according.

Of all those options, Dickerson projects as the true low post scoring threat, something the Hoyas will need. Josh Smith and Mikael Hopkins are entering their final year of eligibility this season.

Last week the Hoyas hosted a pair of centers in University of South Florida transfer John Egbunu and 2015 recruit Jessie Govan. The 7-foot Egbunu would be eligible for the 2015-16 after sitting out the upcoming campaign.

Assistant coach Kevin Sutton, who joined Georgetown before the start of the 2013-14 season, previously served as the head coach at Monteverde.
