Gheorghe Muresan’s son, George, commits to Georgetown


George Muresan, the son of former NBA center and tallest-ever NBA player (7-foot-7) Gheorghe Muresan, has committed to Georgetown and will enroll as a walk-on, according to a statement released by the youngster’s high school St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, in the Washington DC area.

Muresan’s highlight tape may be seen below.

The young Muresan is only 6-foot-9, but has enough talent as a face-up forward that he also drew the attention of Syracuse and also various mid-major programs in the DC area. Instead, he will look to establish himself as a hard-working walk-on with the Hoyas and look to develop as a big man in coach John Thompson III’s Princeton offense and overall defense-oriented system.

And perhaps Muresan can then follow in the footsteps of his father, who played six NBA seasons with the then-Washington Bullets and New Jersey Nets. The elder Muresan led the NBA in field goal percentage twice and averaged 9.8 points and 6.4 rebounds to go with 1.5 blocks per game for his career before injuries forced his retirement at age 28 due to injuries.
