MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College & State University men’s basketball program and head coach Terry Sellers announced the signing of Paul Son Thursday.
“We are ecstatic that Paul has decided to continue his career as a Bobcat,” said Sellers. “At 6-foot-6, Paul has the ability to score inside and out. He is a hard worker with high character and possesses a strong work ethic.”
This past season, Son helped Bulloch Academy and head coach Chandler Dennard reach the GISA Class AA Final Four, win their third Region 2-AA championship in four years and achieve a 23-5 record. A four-year starter for the Gators, Son has helped revive the once-proud boys’ basketball program. He averaged 14.3 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
