Michigan forward Yante Maten and Nigerian center Fred Iduwe committed to Mark Fox and Georgia Basketball on Saturday as the Bulldogs looked to shore up their depth in the frontcourt.
Maten is a 6-foot-8, 230 pound power forward out of Bloomfield Hills High School in Michigan. He is a three-star rated prospect according to Scout.com and is a stretch four as described by his high school coach Duane Graves. Maten was the Gatorade Michigan Player of the Year and also had offers to Michigan State and Indiana. He did a little bit over everything during his senior season in high school averaging 19.5 points, 15.2 rebounds, 6.9 blocks and 4.8 assists.
Iduwe is a 6-foot-11 center who weighs in at 225 pounds. He is originally from Nigeria and played last season at Northwestern Military Academy in Wisconsin. Iduwe sounds like he might be somewhat of a project as he is described by his high school coach as being raw skill wise but physical enough to help on the defensive end of the floor right away. If he can add some weight then he would add some much needed size to Georgia's frontcourt.
The Bulldogs must replace senior Donte Williams who was a staple in the starting lineup during his Georgia career and forward John Cannon who announced he was transferring earlier this season.
