Basketball players getting national attention
AS SEEN IN THE ROME NEWS-TRIBUNE:
A few weeks removed from its incredible Final Four run at the National Junior College Athletic Association Basketball Tournament, Georgia Highlands’ players are seeing the fruits of their success in the form of offers from NCAA schools.
Six different Chargers have received offers, including two from multiple Division I schools, according to GHC assistant coach Matt Williams, who tweeted out the offers Thursday night.
“Just to see all these Division I coaches looking at your guys, it’s nice,” Georgia Highlands head coach Phil Gaffney said in a phone interview Friday. “Just a couple of years ago, there was no one recruiting our players. And now to see these big-time guys come through our doors, it’s great for our guys and great for Georgia Highlands.”
