Not so fast: Hamga still undecided

Let the rumors come to a rest. Beas Hamga is not committing to Indiana next week. Or Kentucky. Or anywhere else anytime soon.

After reading a few rumors claiming Hamga might verbally commit to the Hoosiers next week, I decided to give the 7-foot Cameroonian a call this evening to see if there was any truth to them.

There is not.

Hamga, who found the rumors humorous, said no such college decision had been made, nor would he make a decision anytime soon. When asked about if he had been in contact with Kelvin Sampson and his staff Hamga downplayed the question and replied, “we talk.”

Although the Hoosiers are one of Hamga’s top schools, the class of 2008 center said he wouldn’t be making a choice anytime soon.

“At the end of the summer, at least until the AAU season is over,” he said.

Hamga, who is a junior at Decatur Christian in Illinois, was in the state of Indiana over weekend. Hamga made the short trip to Indianapolis to practice with the Indiana Elite, his AAU team.

  1. But at this point, IU doesn’t even have a scholarship available for Hamga, does it? Or has Joey decided to leave and I just haven’t heard anything about it yet?
