The son of Georgia State’s new basketball coach denied a report that he has committed to his father’s school.
“I haven’t committed yet … to anywhere,” RJ Hunter told the AJC on Friday night.
Hunter is a 6-foot-6, 170-pound shooting guard from Indiana’s Pike High School with about a dozen early basketball scholarship offers.
RJ confirmed on Friday that his four finalists are Wake Forest, Iowa, Virginia Tech and Georgia State — where his father, Ron Hunter, was recently hired as the team’s coach. (And, as we reported last week, the father refuses to recruit the son, assigning an assistant to do it).
The speculation about the son’s commitment apparently began when his father tweeted: “As a dad, very proud of my son RJ. He will look great in Georgia State blue!”
When told about tweet, RJ replied via text message “Oh yeah, I haven’t committed yet. I will let you know when I do.”
