ETSU Hoops has just learned tonight that Aaron Augustin a 5-11 PG from Suwanee, GA has committed to ETSU, making him the first early commitment for the 2016-2017 season.

Aaron Augustin averaged 16.6 PPG, 4.3 APG, and 2.3 steals for Peachtree Ridge High School this past season.

Augustin is currently ranked eighteenth on the HoopSeen 2016 Georgia rankings, and some consider him the best PG in Georgia. ESPN rated Augustin as a 3 star recruit and 35th best PG in the country from the 2016 class.

Aaron fills an essential need for ETSU since both Petey McClain and Ge’Lawn Guyn (ETSU’s only PG’s) will graduate this coming season.

Aaron Augustin talked with Hoopseen about his decision to go to ETSU.

“I just believe in Coach Forbes’ vision for the program. They have some big time players there this year and most of them will be returning,” Augustin told HoopSeen.

“I just felt like Coach Forbes has a history with point guards. At Wichita State he helped mold Fred Van Vleet, who he says I remind him a lot of. He also coached Acie Law at Texas A&M and Chris Lofton at Tennessee,” Augustin said. “He has a background of winning, and that’s what I’m about.”

In addition to ETSU Augustin also had offers from Middle Tennessee, Mercer, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, Furman, Towson, Chattanooga High Point and Tennessee Tech.

Aaron Augustin

Aaron Augustin a 5’11 PG from Suwanee, GA. will reportedly visit ETSU on Thursday according to Hoopseen. According to the Hoopseen article, Augustin took an unofficial visit to Tennessee Tech on August 21st but ETSU will be his first official visit.

Augustin, a 2016 recruit, emerged this summer on the AAU scene and has garnered multiple mid-major offers, two of which come from SOCON rivals UTC & Mercer. The 5’11” PG from Duluth, GA is said to be a heady, pass-first PG who knows how to run the row. His court vision is excellent and he is superb when finding teammates in transition. He also is a good shooter from the outside and knows when to take it upon himself to score the basketball.

Below is a scouting report on Augustin from BrandonClayScouting.com

Augustin is everything that you would want out of a point guard. He is skilled and balances creating for himself and for others at the right amount. He changes directions and speeds with the ball that allow him to create space at proper times. He showed a terrific pull-up jumper on the break from beyond the arc, while he also got into the lane and finished around bigger players. He shows a willingness to defend and defend with energy. He was vocal on the floor, which got his team into their proper spots. Although listed at 6 feet tall, I question if he actually closer to 5-10. Ultimately his ability to get the most out of his physical abilities will tell how productive he will be at the next level.
