Much had changed in Hoyas basketball in the four and a half years since September 26, 2012, the day Hudson Catholic senior Reggie Cameron committed to Georgetown. Rated by ESPN as its #63 prospect in 2013, Cameron was Georgetown's only signing that year and the #9 rated prospect among all Big East signings.
Cameron averaged 24 points a game as a senior at Hudson Catholic, and started 12 games as a freshman following an injury to Jabril Trawick midway through the 2013-14 season. he scored in double figures in three games that season, but his shooting touch was inconsistent (36 percent from the field, 32 percent from three point range) and he returned to the bench following Trawick's return on Feb. 22, 2014.
The role of the small forward was a mystery for much of the last three years in John Thompson III's offensive game plans, and Cameron's playing time suffered as a result. The move to a three guard offense to accommodate adding L.J. Peak to the offense severely limited Cameron's role over the ensuing seasons. He averaged less than five minutes a game as a sophomore, where he scored only six points in Big East play and averaged 1.2 points per game overall.
Cameron's junior season was his most productive. He averaged 5.6 points on 40 percent shooting, and was third on the team in three point shooting. His 15 points against St. John's that a season was a career high, and Cameron averaged nearly nine points a game during his six starts. But just as lineup changes sent Cameron to the bench as a sophomore, the arrival of Rodney Pryor did the same as a senior. As such, Cameron was all but invisible as a senior, averaging less than two points a game in very limited roles. His eight point, four rebound effort against Seton Hall provided a glimpse of Cameron's abilities, which were never fully utilized in his last two seasons.
