Georgia Bulldogs Basketball

Just Saying

I know we are less than 17 days till the kickoff of football and yes, I know we are not in Kentucky; but to show you I have a respectable amount of pessimism for the football season I am sharing a basketball news story.

Shooting Guard Tadric Jackson, the State's #5 overall prospect, had UGA and Tech as finalists up till mid-day and then in somewhat of a surprise selected the North Avenue School over the Classic City.

Mr. Jackson was reasonable in explaining his choice by saying all the right phrases such as "I really wanted to play in the best conference in the country -- that’s the ACC,...Really it’s home. (Georgia Tech) is not that far away, downtown Atlanta, (and) it’s where I want to be."

His Tift County Head Coach was somewhat more direct. Coach Eric Holland said "He wanted to jump in there with the big boys and see how his game stacked up...His dad lives in Macon, and his mother is next to I-75 and can get to Atlanta with no problem. Chris Bolden is his blood cousin, and he has a good relationship with Robert Carter...Then he thought Georgia was a big football school, and basketball didn’t get the same type of support. He wants to play in sold-out gyms and in front of big crowds. And Georgia Tech upgraded their facilities, and Tadric mentioned he liked the opportunity to play in downtown Atlanta."

Maybe the new President will read this and realize that 70 million sitting in the bank could be used to bring quality basketball players to Athens.

Changes in men's basketball

While the University has yet to announce either move officially, Cameron Forte, a JUCO F, will be joining Mark Fox's program next season, while coach Kwanza Johnson will not be around.

Men's Basketball Teams Has New JUCO.

We got a commitment from Cameron Forte. I suspected we'd go after a JUCO forward, but it sounds like this guy is more of a 3/4 hybrid instead of a true low post guy. Assistant Coach Kwanza Johnson is also leaving, supposedly for TCU, though supposedly he had an offer to join Tubby's staff at Texas Tech. Apparently Jonas Hayes will now be elevated from his role as Operations Coordinator to Assistant Coach.
