A.J. Hammons determined to make an impression
A.J. Hammons has had a wild ride around the rankings in the class of 2012. He was once considered one of the top big men in the class, but injuries and sitting out hindered his reputation.
This summer, Hammons is looking to show everyone he is still the player he once was.
“I need to get back in shape,” he said. “I took off too long.”
Several schools are courting the 6-foot-10 Oak Hill Academy (Va.) big man, including Texas, Minnesota, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Purdue and Maryland.
“I want to come in and play,” Hammons said. “I don’t have to start, but I want to play.”
