Report: Dogs to sign point guard Williams

By DARRYL MAXIE / dmaxie@ajc.com

Vincent Williams, a point guard from South Dade High in Homestead, Fla., is about to become new coach Mark Fox’s first signee. According to ugasports.com, Williams has committed to sign a letter of intent to play for Georgia.

Williams, a 6-foot-1, 150-pound guard, averaged 26 points and 6.2 assists last season, reportedly chose the Dogs over Charlotte, North Carolina State and Oklahoma after making an official visit to Athens over the weekend.

Williams would join 6-3 Franklin County guard DeMario Mayfield in Georgia’s current recruiting class. He signed in November when Dennis Felton was still the Dogs’ coach. Daniel Miller, the 6-11 Loganville Christian Academy center, was granted a release from his letter of intent by Fox and signed a financial-aid agreement the next day with Georgia Tech.

Oh, and I keep asking this….. Has anyone talked to the UGA football or bball coaches about whether Marlon Brown has permission to play both sports or not? He is still listed on rivals.com as both a football and bball signee. It would be great to have another athlete like him on the hardwood if he can handle the load of both sports and classes.

The individual who posted the 5th and 6th posts is a sad and angry person whom I feel sorry for. There is no other explanation for such a post on a short story about a kid who is going to realize his dream of being a college basketball player at an SEC school.

Go Dawgs!

I thought Tech fans had class.

@coachx – Not all Tech fans have class. I wish the young man well. While I’m a Tech fan through and through, I think Athens is great town. I do wonder if anyone in college athletics has done as much damage to a program as Harrick did to UGA basketball? I think UGA is still in the process of recovering from that debacle.

GTFan – good comments, and yes, someone has; it’s Michael Adams, the egomaniac president we are somehow still stuck with at UGA after he caused the whole Harrick debacle.

On your side, you should have an awesome team next year with the new class. If Hewitt can’t get it done with them, you made need to go into however much debt it takes to unload him.

TO EVERYONE INCLUDING POTENTIAL RECRUITS. GIVE COACH FOX A CHANCE.I THINK IT WAS WRONG FOR THE YOUNG MAN TO COMMIT TO A SCHOOL THEN LEAVE BECAUSE OF A COACHING CHANGE. WHO’S TO SAY THAT THINGS MIGHT NOT WORK OUT AT TECH.SOME TIMES WE FAIL TO LOOK BEYOND THE FOREST FOR THE TREES. COACH FOX UNDOUBTLY HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN COACHING OR ELSE HE WOULD NOT BE COACHING ON THE D-1 LEVEL. HE’S TAKEN TEAMS TO THE BIG DANCE,SO WHAT’S THE PROBLEM? SUPPOSE SOMEONE WOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN THE KNIGHTS,PITINOS AND ROY WILLIAMS A CHANCE.

ugay people can’t spell class, let alone know what the word means. the school is a joke and the city is one big urinal. ugay posters want to post how how tech makes terrorists and is not really an amer. school, but hey at least our teachers don’t go round killing people and abandoning their children. just calling like i see it. don’t hate the player hate the game.

I heard this kid is a true scorer as a combo guard. In terms of ugay comments, I wonder what time they make the patients at the mental hospital sign off. That dude is a fool with an inferiority complex. Don’t hate the DAWGS because you have no life or clue

Marlon Brown will be football only if I had to guess after Gibson’s performance after his Fresh year. Never improved. As for UGAY, your like the dude that tells an off color joke and you can hear crickets after the punch line or record scratch. You choose the sound.

Thanks Rome Dawg – we have some renovation projects going in addition to work right now, so I don’t think I am going to any of the club meetings this Spring.

Haha, Athens a urinal, makes you wonder what Atlanta would be considered. Athens is ranked as one of the top college towns in America, and Tech fans are just jealous.

As for ugay and his comments, obviously he leads a pathetic and miserable life. It is kinda sad to see him try to rag on a University that just had a tragedy occur by somehow blaming the school for an individual’s independent actions. Unfortunately, he is too naive to see that the city is deeply affected by the loss of three great people. I took classes from the wife of one of the victims, a sweet lady who now has lost her husband. However, ugay seems to find this a point of victory, which demonstrates how sad a life he must lead.

I feel that we have improved the guard position. We need an outside shooter so as to allow the big men to work underneath. Last year the defenses were able to collapse on them. Do not forget McPhee.

Good to see Coach Fox finally signed someone. Seems to be a good shooter from what I have read. Looks like he should get in the weight room and get to a Ryan’s or Golden Corral to gain some. 150 is a little light in the a@# to be playing D-1 ball

Hey losers, I wish one of you rednecks would stop and think about a logical response to my posts and give me a reason that would show that I’m wrong about your beloved city and school, but unfortunately all you rednecks just keep proving me right. All you all can do is throw insults at me. What a bunch of sheep you are. All I said was truthful about Athens and the Vocational school in athens. If one you inbreds can prove me wrong then do it. I bet you can’t, so I expect the childish insults to keep coming. Losers

Stop responding to “ugay,” and other persons posting comments in the same vein. They are baiting you; each response invites them to post again. Pretend they aren’t here. Let them clutter the boards with garbage to their heart’s are content, you can ignore it.

Each time you see the post of UGAY it is a cry out for some manly attention. JP you are right and this will be my last comment on this love starved individual. If some of you guys fresh out of prison need to catch up on some affection then I think the creature calling himself UGAY which really means IGAY should respond to his whimpering. HE WONDERS WHY PEOPLE DESPISE HIM FOR HIS RANTS ON A CITY AND UNIVERSITY AN WANTS TO KNOW WHY NO ONE WILL EXPLAIN TO HIM WHY HE IS WRONG. YOU ARE WRONG BECAUSE YOU ARE A PERVERT AND CANNOT SEE BECAUSE YOUR LONELY MOUTH IS COVERING YOUR EYES. SO LONG DORK.

Wow UGAY your cute when your mad.

**”sticks and stones loosers”**
Well duh, so why are you wasting your time posting dick weed.

**”all you a holes can do is post insults”**
And you so thoughtfully presented the facts as why Athens is such a horrible place??

**”Hey losers, I wish one of you rednecks would stop and think about a logical response to my posts and give me a reason that would show that I’m wrong about your beloved city and school, but unfortunately all you rednecks just keep proving me right.”**

Nice sentence. Who can we compete with such a genius like yourself?
Thanks for the laughs UGAY. It’s always good to see GT fans on the verge of suicide. Well, at least this one.
