Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

Playing for John Thompson III at Georgetown, both Isaac Copeland (Raleigh, N.C./Brewster Academy) and Paul White (Chicago/Whitney Young) will fit nicely together.

Copeland is more of a skilled, stretch four man with terrific mobility and length. He can stroke the 3 and score close to the rim. Meanwhile, if you watched White's performance Thursday on ESPN2 against Apple Valley, you could easily see the array of skills he brings to the game. The ability to score shoot, pass, rebound and handle the ball allows him to play small forward or power forward.

Both bring excellent positional size, length, and versatility to the court. Each still has plenty of upside to tap into as they mature, and they need to learn how to utilize their athletic frames to play defense. They both could influence the game on defense if they get serious in their approach.

They will easily be able to coexist on the floor as interchangeable parts to the Georgetown system, which is heavily based on skill, finesse and exploring mismatches on the floor.
