Hunt-Days' father Calvin said Tuesday that Jabari is in summer school, but that he and his wife are not paying his tuition. In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in May, Calvin Days said that he and wife Paula won't pay for him to attend Tech until he demonstrates a better attitude towards his schoolwork.
Johnson also addressed former B-back Travis Custis’ transfer to Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College after originally planning to transfer to Georgia Military College. Custis also was declared academically ineligible at the end of the semester.
Johnson’s explanation for the change was that Custis had to do what was best for him, but deferred to him for further explanation. He also said that Custis told him that he wanted to return to Tech. Johnson said he thought Custis would be re-admitted to Tech if he were to take care of the issues that caused his ineligibility.
“We’d certainly like to have him back if that works out,” Johnson said. “I think he’s got a bright future.”
