New Georgia Tech coach Brian Gregory and UGA’s Mark Fox made appearances at the same place on Wednesday — Miller Grove High School.
The coaching rivals were observing Miller Grove teammates Tony Parker and Brandon Morris, two of the nation’s top college basketball prospects for 2012.
Parker is a 6-foot-9, 270-pound power forward who has around 40 early offers, including North Carolina, Duke, Georgia Tech and UGA. Morris is a 6-7, 200-pound wing with around 15 offers, including Florida, Auburn, UGA and Clemson.
Georgia Tech may be next for Morris. “The previous staff at Georgia Tech didn’t really recruit Brandon that hard, but the new guys have a vested interest,” Miller Grove coach Sharman White said told the AJC. “They are giving him a good look.”
Morris has been on a hot streak lately. He got offers within the last two days from Texas, Memphis and Xavier. Parker got two new offers, Texas and Arkansas, to add to his stack.
Will Parker and Morris be a “package deal”? It hasn’t been talked about that much in recruiting circles, but Miller Grove’s coach didn’t rule out the idea. “I think that will depend on which schools recruit both. Only time will tell. I do know that Tony and Brandon really enjoying playing basketball together.”
The star-studded tandem has helped Miller Grove win three straight state championships.
