Georgetown lands commitment from Gheorge Muresan’s son, George

George Muresan committed to Georgetown on Wednesday, where he will enroll in the basketball program as a walk-on, his high school, St. Andrew’s announced.

You can probably guess who his father is: Gheorge Muresan, the 7-foot-7 Romanian center that once averaged 14.5 points in a season for the Washington Bullets. Muresan shares the honor of being the tallest player in NBA history with Manute Bol.

George does not have Gheorge’s height, as he stands “just” 6-foot-9, but he’s talented enough to have been offered preferred walk-on spots at a number of programs and to have been recruited by a handful of mid-major programs in the area.
