DePaul signs 6-5 guard from Oak Hill
Six-foot-5 shooting guard R.J. Curington, an Indiana native who played at Oak Hill Academy, has signed to play basketball at DePaul next season, head coach Oliver Purnell announced Wednesday.
Curington joins three other players in DePaul's 2013 recruiting class: Morgan Park guard Billy Garrett Jr. and junior college forwards Forrest Robinson and Greg Sequele.
During his senior season at Oak Hill in Virginia, Curington posted a 20-point game against Mt. Zion Academy (N.C.) and a 16-point effort against Montrose Christian (Md.). He also faced two Chicago prep programs during the 2012-13 season with 19 points and six rebounds against Simeon and 15 points and five rebounds against Curie.
Curington grew up in Dyer, Ind.
The Oak Hill Warriors went a perfect 44-0 during Curington's junior season and won the high school national championship while finishing No. 1 in both the ESPN and USA Today national rankings. They finished this season with a 33-6 record and ranked No. 22 by ESPN and 23rd in the final USA Today poll.
