Georgia State junior guard R.J. Hunter could declare for the NBA draft after the NCAA tournament, but his dad doesn't think it's a good idea. Of course, Ron Hunter has a pretty good reason to hope R.J. stays in school: he's also Georgia State's coach.
R.J. had plenty of offers from big-time programs, but he decided to play for his dad at Georgia State. Now, Ron has to recruit him all over again.
“I'm going to buy him a car and give him a lot of money and new clothes when we're done with this. I can illegally recruit him and get away with it,” Ron said, according to USA Today. “His mom is going to get something really special too so she can be on my side and we can kind of sweet talk him into coming back.”
Is that logic a bit flawed, though? Once R.J. goes pro he'll have plenty of money of his own.
