At 6-8, 190 pounds with guard skills, a post-up game, and the ability to stretch out toward the perimeter, Kevon Looney is a hot commodity in the Class of 2014.

Looking for a player in that mold, coach John Thompson III and the Georgetown staff had been on Looney's trail during the July recruiting period to add to their recruiting haul.

But it seems the road has come to an end.

According to Paul Biancardi of ESPN, Looney has trimmed his list to six schools--Duke, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Florida, Tennessee, and UCLA--meaning that the Hoyas will have to look elsewhere in 2014.

Looney has a skill set that many high-major programs covet, a player with size who can take players off the dribble and flex between the small forward and stretch-four position.

Without Looney, Georgetown still has a strong 2014 class, comprised of Isaac Copeland, L.J. Peak, and local guard Tre Campbell.

Sights likely focus on the Hoyas' next major prospect in the class, big man Elbert Robinson, a 6-11, 270-pound center from Texas.

Robinson would round out the group, giving the Hoyas a guard (Campbell), wing (Peak), forward (Copeland), and center (Robinson).

CSNWashington.com will have more on Robinson in the coming days.
