Silas Demary Jr., a four-star point guard in the senior class and former USC signee, has committed to the University of Georgia to play for Mike White, he told On3. 

“I chose Georgia because it’s close to home and I love family being at my games,” he said. “Coach Mike White and the staff believe in me and believe I can come in and add to the winning they’re starting to do. I feel like I’m bringing leadership and a winning attitude to Athens.”

The 6-foot-5 prospect of Lincolnton (N.C.) Combine Academy asked out of his National Letter of Intent to the Trojans earlier this month. Demary provided the following statement to On3 when after he decided to reopen his recruitment:

“After much prayer and discussion with my parents and those close to my journey, I have decided to formally request release from my NLI to the University of Southern California,” he wrote.

“I have great respect and appreciation for the USC coaching staff and fans. My decision was not made lightly.  I am confident that I will find a program that aligns with my dreams and aspirations of being a successful student-athlete.  I have dedicated countless hours perfecting my craft to be a leader on and off the court. I will be re-opening my recruitment process to all schools. Please respect my decision. Thanks to my family and friends for your continued support.”

USC guard Boogie Ellis (17.7 PPG) recently announced he’d be returning next season, likely playing into Demary’s decision. The Trojans also have an offer out to five-star senior guard Bronny James.

Demary ranks as the No. 62 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He’s also the nation’s No. 10 point guard and the No. 2 player in the state of North Carolina.

Silas Demary Jr. Scouting Summary

“Demary is a high-level defender, both on and off the ball. Great length. Excellent anticipation. Really competes at a high level. A combo guard on offense. Not a paint touch PG, but he can get you into sets. He is an aggressive downhill scorer. Great in transition. Solid athlete. Like to see continue to tighten the jump shot. State champion. UAA champion.” – On3’s Jamie Shaw
