Until it's taken down, his page from UGA.

Yeah, it's Georgia, but we still got a (part-time) starter from a $EC school to transfer in. Looks like a very good get.

He was a recruit from the prior staff and the Georgia coaches this year were not great. Good get.

From the Atlanta paper:

Quote:
Last season, as Georgia went 11-21, 2-16 SEC, Hightower averaged 6.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 17.4 minutes in 29 games, including 17 startrs, for coach Tom Crean. Over the final eight games of the season, he played 8, 7, 6, 5 and 5 minutes and did not appear in three contests.

Held LSU's Tremont Waters to six points when Hightower was a freshman; got raves from ex coach Mark Fox for defensive play.

Sounds like a hardship waiver to me. Change in situation
