Charlotte, NC - Charlotte 49ers men's basketball coach Mark Price will get the chance to coach his son. Hudson Price, Mark's son and a transfer from TCU will officially join the 49ers program.
“I am very excited to add Hudson to our basketball program,” Mark Price said. “He brings a wealth of experience to our team as well as another player that has a lot of skill and shooting ability. He is a very versatile player for his size. He will be a great addition to our program.”
Hudson will have to sit out the 2015-2016 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He can begin playing for Charlotte during the 2016-2017 season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Price, a six-foot-seven guard, earned second-team Academic All-Big 12 honors last season. He played in 53 games with eight starts over the last two seasons at TCU.
"I am excited to join the Charlotte 49ers program and play for my dad,” Hudson Price said.
Price is the eighth player to sign with the 49ers since Coach Price was hired in late March.
