Kyprianos Maragkos, a 2012 power forward, has committed to GW, The Recruit Scoop reported.
Maragkos is ranked by Eurohopes.com as the ninth-best overall prospect in Europe for players born in 1994.
The 6-foot-9, 220 pound big man averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 rebounds this July for his U-18 Greece team that competed in the European championships. The Greece native currently attends the Blue Ridge School in Charlottesville, Va., and his high school coach, Bill Ramsey, told The News Virginian that Maragkos “can play both the 4 and 5 and is a very good 3-point shooter.”
“He’s as equally comfortable playing with his back to the basket as he is stepping out and shooting. He’s physical. He’s not like a finesse European player,” Ramsey told The News Virginian. “He likes to mix it up.”
Maragkos only arrived stateside Sept. 2 but quickly garnered much attention from collegiate programs. Other schools rumored to be in the mix for the forward included Maryland, UAB, UNC Charlotte, Gonzaga and American.
Maragkos is the second Colonials recruit commitment under first-year head coach Mike Lonergan, joining Alexandria guard Kethan Savage.

With nine match-ups against ranked opponents, the now-No. 57 men’s tennis team has found itself the underdog for much of the season. But with an unexpected No. 1 ranking heading into the upcoming Atlantic 10 Championships, the Colonials are the team to beat.
GW won the first two games of the series – the first after a late six-run burst and the second in a traditional pitchers' duel in which sophomore Jacob Williams allowed just two hits through eight innings.
Though he bats first in the lineup for GW (7-13) and has ignited the Colonials’ offense so far this season, “Xepo” wasn’t always picked first. He didn't receive any offers from a Division I or II program out of high school.
When the 6-foot-5 guard strode into the Lerner Health and Wellness Center last week, I got a glimpse of Creek up close. I saw a side of him and his game that gets lost when you’re watching games from behind a laptop screen.
This has been the story of Linn’s season: clutch hit after clutch hit. The Corona, Calif., native leads the team in four major offensive categories: batting average (.340), runs (20), hits (33) and RBIs (21). And she’s doing it all after just 30 games as a Colonial.
