CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — A one-armed basketball player who's taken the internet by storm has verbally committed to playing at Austin Peay State University.
Hansel Enmanuel, a 6'6" guard from Northwestern State, posted the transfer news to his Instagram account this week. A report from Clarksville Now says Enmanuel plans to follow his former head coach Corey Gipson.
ESPN reports Enmanuel lost his left arm when he was a child after a wall collapsed and fell on him. He was trapped for hours and his arm had to be amputated.
Enmanuel's skills as a basketball player have gone viral over the last few years and eventually led him to a high school scholarship at Life Christian Academy in Florida.
