Teshaun Hightower is off the board to Georgia.
The 6-foot-4 combo guard from Mount Zion Prep (MD) was also being recruited by Western Kentucky, La Salle, St. Louis, N.C. State and Oklahoma.
“Teshaun will develop into a great lead guard on the next level,” Mount Zion associate head coach Brian Scott said. “He has the ability to lead his team. He also has the ability to be a lock-down defender. Teshaun can also score and distribute out of the lead guard spot as well.”
