J. R. Inman, out of St. Joseph Regional High School in Montvale New Jersey, has made a verbal commitment to continue his basketball career at Rutgers University. 

Gerald, a Senior in 2005, was also offered by N.C. State and was involved with Maryland, until recently.  St. Joe's, West Virginia, and Miami were also in the picture as well.

"Yes, he has committed to Rutgers," said Mr. Inman.  "As a parent I felt Rutgers is an up and coming program where Gerald can see himself playing major minutes and can help Gary Waters get to the next level."

Mr. Inman stated that his son's commitment was solid.  "He has seen enough from his AAU games to know what he wants."

J. R. stands at 6'8" and 195 and can play either the three- or four-spot at Rutgers. "I taught him how to play," stated Mr. Inman, noting that early on he emphasized to his son the importance of a skilled big-man with athletic qualities.  These sentiments proved prophetic as it is precisely these set of qualities that separate Gerald from other players his age - the ability to play both facing the basket and with his back to the basket, the ability to rebound, and the capability to pass the ball with the dexterity of a guard.  Indeed, it is the all-around game that makes J. R. Inman special.
