In SI's new college basketball mock-draft for next year, Jonathan Givony has both Travis Lesley and Trey Tompkins ranked in his top 20 players in the nation!
It's in this that we see both Georgia players lauded for their talent and ability. Tompkins, obviously, is listed higher, at 14 overall. Givony states:
He isn't a great athlete, though, and must improve defensively and play with consistent intensity.
This is followed by, only 6 spots later, Travis Lesley, who Givony praises as
probably the most athletic player in college basketball -- a highlight reel waiting to happen.
Clearly, we've got the makings of a real team here next year, with more coverage and media attention. Mark Fox, you devil, you lucked out with Felton's recruits. Now it's time to take those players and put them in the right places (Felton's failing) so that you can maximize their exposure, as well as the program's. Get Georgia in the national spotlight and draw more talent back home to Athens, and we might finally wake that sleeping giant!
