Former Georgetown Hoya Greg Whittington chooses Rutgers


George Whittington was dismissed from the Georgetown Hoyas towards the end of last month. He has finally found a new place to call home.

The former forward of the Hoyas has decided to transfer to Rutgers University to be a Scarlet Knight. This past weekend, Whittington met with Rutgers coach Eddie Jordan, and was hooked from that point forward. Via ESPN,

“Coach Jordan welcomed me as family and so did the entire staff,” Whittington told ESPN.com. “The style of play is similar to Georgetown, but it’s more open and he likes to get out and run.”

“They will be in the Big Ten next year with a lot of competition,” Whittington added. “I like the players on the team, the campus was nice and they have a good fan base.”

Whittington chose Rutgers over schools such as Memphis, Nebraska, and South Carolina.

However, Whittington is still recovering from a torn ACL which he suffered this past summer. He has missed most of the start of this college basketball season, and it is unknown how much further he will be forced to miss.
