Former Georgia men's basketball guard Teshaun Hightower has found a new program to play for next season.

Hightower tweeted on Monday his commitment to Tulane and its new head coach Ron Hunter.

The sophomore started in 17 games for Georgia last season and averaged 6.6 points per game. 

He was one of three Georgia players whose intentions to transfer went public at the conclusion of the season, joining freshmen JoJo Toppin, who transferred to Georgia State, and Ignas Sarguinas, who hasn't transferred anywhere yet.
