TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - R.J. Mahurin, a 6-foot-7 sophomore at Rockville High School, has made an oral commitment to play basketball at Indiana State in 2009.
Mahurin averaged 19 points a game last season playing for his father, the Rockville coach.
"He made it real simple,'' Rockville coach Dave Mahurin told the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. "I asked him if he could go anywhere in the country, where would it be? He said he wanted to go to ISU. … I can't think of another place I'd want to send my son.''
The elder Mahurin told the Tribune-Star his son was offered a scholarship by Wisconsin-Green Bay. He said Butler, Ball State, Southern Illinois, and Tennessee-Chattanooga also showed interest.
