ESSENTIALS

Status —  COMMITTED (September 2019)

Hometown – Concord, New Hampshire (St. Paul’s School)
Position – Small Forward
Height – 6-foot-6
Weight – 195
AAU – Mass Rivals (Adidas)
247 Sports Composite Rating – 4-star (No. 98)
Primary Competition – Virginia, Georgia, Boston College, Iowa, Penn State, Providence.

Timeline — Indiana is the first of Geronimo’s official visits.  He appears to be on track to commit in the fall and sign in November.

Indiana Connections — Because Geronimo’s rise has been quick the relationships are fresh, but Indiana’s coaching staff is well acquainted with his AAU program.

Numbers –Geronimo averaged 9.1 points per game in the spring and summer, but that number ballooned to 17.5 a contest over his last two games.  He shot the ball well throughout AAU play, making 53.6% of his attempts overall, including 34.8% from behind the three-point line.  Geronimo has added 4.1 rebounds per game on the Adidas circuit.

At St. Paul’s, Geronimo averaged 14 points per game as a junior while shooting 52% on two-pointers and 38% from three-point range.  He added 8 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 assists and 2 steals per contest.

RECRUITING SERVICE ASSESSMENTS

“While he can be inconsistent, Geronimo has all the physical tools you could want in a hybrid forward. He stands around 6-foot-6, has excellent length, is a very good athlete, and then also has the ability to make shots from deep. The next step for Geronimo is to be more consistent with his production, and that definitely seems like an attainable goal.”

— Brian Snow, 247Sports

“A long-armed, strong, athletic, instinctive defender and capable shot-maker.”

— Corey Evans, Rivals

QUOTABLE

“I am not sure what to expect. This will be my first official visit, so I am not sure what to expect. I have heard how the fans are crazy about basketball, because Indiana is a basketball state, and I want to feel the energy there.  The coaches have been texting and calling me a lot, and are very interested in me, and they tell me how I can fit in perfectly on their team, so I like that.”

““I was actually stunned,” he said. “I got the offer off a text from an unsaved number and got a phone call a little while later and talked to the head coach about the program. It all felt so unreal.”

Indiana’s pitch was explaining to me how they were going to use me in their system and how I can be a basketball star in the next couple of years under the right development,” he explained. “He started listing NBA players that he coached and I’m not going to lie, that kind of got me feeling some type of way.”
