Teshaun Hightower, a 6' 5" combo guard, is set to announce his college decision on February 14th.
UGA fans have to figure that the timing favors Georgia. Hightower was in Athens earlier this week, so the fact that he so soon afterwards released a decision date, means that he was either really impressed by what UGA had to say, or really discouraged by our loss to South Carolina.
Best I can tell, Teshaun likes the idea of playing with Rayshaun Hammonds, a guy he went up against regularly in Gwinnett County, and would prefer to be fairly close to home. That works well for us, since UGA desperately needs another point guard, with J.J. Frazier graduating this summer. Teshaun can probably easily see playing time in Athens.
Hightower is not highly ranked, but he's a player that may be under-valued by the analysts. Here are his highlights from his senior season at Collins Hill, before he took the prep year at Mt. Zion.
If it's any indication, the guys over at 24/7 seem to think it's down to Western Kentucky and Georgia.
I'm going to go out on a limb and predict he's a Dawg!
