    "International prospect Tafara Gapare verbally committed to George Washington on Friday, a source tells 247Sports.

    Gapare, a standout at Scots College in Wellington, New Zealand, gave Jamion Christian the official pledge late Friday afternoon. While Gapare wasn't able to take an official visit to George Washington's campus due to the coronavirus, he did multiple Zoom calls with the GW staff.

    Gapare is arguably the most talented prospect to commit to George Washington in the Jamion Christian Era. At 6-foot-8, Gapare is oozing with upside and potential. He has an impressive physical make up, good mobility, length, athleticism, versatility, defensive potential and an improving skill set.

    Last summer Gapare made a trip to the United States with the New Zealand Basketball Academy to play in the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas. The team was coached by Kenny McFadden, who helped discover and mold NBA big man Steven Adams.

    In 2018 Gapare played for New Zealand in the u15 Oceania Championship, averaging 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds. He connected on 21 of 36 two-point field goals. Gapare also participated in the NBA Academy Showcase at the Final Four last year.

    Gapare will be rated as a four-star prospect on 247Sports, and is George Washington's first commitment in the 2021 recruiting class."

    GW has had good success in the past with international guys, seems like another hit for them on the recruiting trail.
