Suarez goes to Georgia Southern

Georgia Southern head coach Charlton Young continues to make an impact in the Southern Conference with his recruiting.

On Thursday, Young added Rasham Suarez, a 6-foot-2 guard from Jonesboro (Ga.) who choose the Eagles over Wichita State, Northeastern, Mercer and Western Kentucky.

“I like their coaching staff and I feel like it’s going to go in the right direction and I wanna make Georgia Southern a basketball school again,” Suarez said. “And I want to put Georgia Southern on the map like [Stephen] Curry did for Davidson.”

Suarez played with the Georgia Stars on the AAU circuit, providing a consistent scoring option on the perimeter alongside Kedren Johnson and Malcolm Brogdon.

He said that his relationship with Young and his ability to be the go-to-guy for Georgia Southern were the key factors in his decision.

“I would make a lot of impact just putting all the work in the court and out of the court,” Suarez said. “And make my teammates better like I did this past season on AAU.”

Suarez is confident that the Eagles could soon be the next mid-major to be a factor on the national level.

“It’s a new era for Georgia Southern. If Butler and Davidson did it, Rasham, coach Young and Georgia Southern can do it.”
