Isaac Copeland’s time at Georgetown is finished as head coach John Thompson III announced on Monday that the junior will transfer at semester break.

A former five-star recruit from the Class of 2014, the 6-foot-9 Copeland never materialized into the potential star that the Hoyas hoped he might become as he struggled to earn minutes the last few weeks. Copeland only played eight total minutes over the last five Georgetown games as injuries and poor play contributed to his declining playing time.

As a sophomore, Copeland put up 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in 32 minutes per game but he was only playing 19.6 minutes a contest this season. Copeland’s shooting percentages plummeted as a junior as he is shooting 27 percent from the field after being at 42 percent last season. Also 0-for-10 from three-point territory, Copeland just never seemed to find a rhythm this season as graduate transfer Rodney Pryor, Marcus Derrickson and Kaleb Johnson gobbled up most of the minutes.

Hopefully Copeland can find somewhere that rejuvenates his career because he still has plenty of tools to work with. As for Georgetown, Copeland is the second high-profile recruit from the Class of 2014 to transfer after Paul White left for Oregon this offseason.
