Christian Fussell, a senior at Greenforest McCalep Christian Academy in Decatur, Ga., also will consider Virginia Commonwealth, Florida Gulf Coast, Charlotte and Middle Tennessee State. Earlier in the day, Shun Williams, of On the Radar Hoops, announced Fussell had been offered a scholarship by Dayton.
Georgia Tech and Mississippi State offered Fussell scholarships earlier this summer, and many other schools were recruiting him.
Fussell is a three-star recruit, according to Rivals.com.
“I’m a versatile player. I can shoot it, I can put the ball on the floor,” Fussell told 247Sports.com in June. “I’m also versatile defensively; can guard most positions, can rebound, I can block shots and alter shots at the rim. I always had a jump shot on me but as I got taller, I was able to use it more because I was able to shoot over people more. I feel I can shoot it from NBA range, I have confidence that I can pull it from that range and make it.”
