Kevin Ware transfers to Georgia State
By Noah Allison
Junior guard Kevin Ware has found his new home and it’s in a familiar place. Ware will be returning to his home in Atlanta, Ga. to play for Ron Hunter’s Georgia State Panthers.
Ware, the six-foot-two guard, only played nine games in the 2014 season before reinjuring his leg against Missouri State.
Ware was granted a medical red-shirt and still has two years of eligibility left to play.
Georgia State is a member of the Sun Belt conference. The Panthers went 25-9 overall with a 17-1 in-conference record. They went on to lose to Clemson in the NIT.
Ware will be joining a number of prominent transfers on Georgia State’s current roster. Most notable is former Kentucky guard Ryan Harrow who along with Georgia State’s R.J. Hunter played as one of the best mid-major back courts.
Along with Harrow Georgia State got considerable contribution from former Virginia Tech transfer Manny Atkins who led the Panthers in rebounds. USC transfer Curtis Washington was second on the Panthers in rebounds.
Ware is starting anew among many teammates who also took the non-traditional college route.
The Panthers of Georgia State return a full roster of talented players who were able to compete adamantly in their respective conference.
The storybook ending to Ware’s story would have had him remain at Louisville, but nothing can be changed now.
Kevin Ware is now a Panther and will finish his collegiate career at Georgia State. After breaking his leg against Duke in the Elite Eight nobody wanted anything more than to bring Kevin home to Atlanta. Now he is home, and hopefully can get back to the court.
