R.J. CURINGTON ENJOYS ‘IMPRESSIVE’ VISIT TO INDIANA
By N.D. Kendrick
The history of Indiana basketball is something that many outside of the state may not truly understand.
R.J. Curington was able to experience the passion and history first hand today when he visited the Indiana campus.
“The history, I was able to see the banners and all of the NBA players and IU greats that have played here,” he stated when asked what stood out about the visit.
“All the assistants were great and Calbert Cheaney was a very humble guy”
Curington is a standout player for the Canada based CIA Bounce AAU team and plays his prep ball at the historic Oak Hill Academy located in Mouth of Wilson, Va. Curington is a dedicated player that understands what it takes to be great. He is outspoken and eager to be in the spotlight. Curington is a scoring guard that has some ability to handle the point spot. He can lead the break and tends to make good decisions on the fly. Curington has a steady jump shot from behind the arch. He rarely forces up shots and plays a unselfish game. He continues to work on his handle and eventually will end up playing a lot of the point position.
Even though he plays primarily outside of the state, he should definitely be considered one of the top 2013 players in the state of Indiana.
He has visited several college campuses and he still plans to visit other schools before he goes back East on August 26th.
“Tennessee, Illinois, Stanford and Harvard want me to schedule a visit before school starts,” Curington told an NBE colleague this evening.
When asked if he had anything special to say to the Hoosier fans he stated “I just appreciate the love they are showing. It is a great place and they expect great things.”
“It would definitely be a great place to go.”
R.J. Curington still has a ways to go in his recruiting process as he told NBE he is wide open with no favorites at this time, but it sure does sound like that Indiana tradition really hit home as he summed up the trip.
“Everything was pretty impressive.”
