Ron Hunter led Georgia State to its second postseason appearance in his three years at the school, reaching the NIT after the Panthers fell in the Sun Belt tournament final to Louisiana-Lafayette.
Hunter's work to revive the Atlanta school's basketball program has come not just in the form of wins, but also in getting some high-profile transfers to come to the school. This past year's team featured former Kentucky recruit Ryan Harrow, and next season he'll likely have the services of former Louisville guard Kevin Ware, who announced his transfer in early April.
Ware, best known for breaking his leg on the court during Louisville's Elite Eight game in 2013 (en route to an NCAA title), plans to apply for a hardship waiver to become immediately eligible, according to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
If that happens, the Panthers would feature a backcourt of players formerly at blue-chip programs, and Georgia State could find itself mentioned in the same breath as other successful transfer havens like Iowa State, Oregon and San Diego State.
