UGA added another homegrown talent from the state of Georgia on Monday.
Brandon Morris committed to UGA after making an official visit with the Bulldogs over the weekend. The 6-foot-7 small forward from Miller Grove High School also had Auburn and Arkansas as his finalists.
“I had a list of things that I wanted in college, and Georgia was a great fit,” Morris told the AJC. “I fit in perfect with the roster they’ve got, and I have a chance to compete for early playing time … This was a good decision for me.
“After my visit to Georgia, I didn’t see the need to take official visits to anywhere else. Why go far away to play college basketball when there’s a great program this close to home? I called Coach Fox to let him know, and he said I made his day. He was really happy about my commitment, as am I.”
UGA now had three commitments for its 2012 college basketball recruiting class and all three are from Georgia. The others are a pair of guards, Whitefield Academy’s Kenny Gaines and Milton’s Charles Mann.
Georgia has at least one more scholarship spot available and is trying to lure one of the “Big Three” – three power forwards from Georgia who are ranked among the nation’s top 25 overall college basketball prospects: Southwest DeKalb’s Shaq Goodwin, Miller Grove’s Tony Parker, and Shiloh’s Robert Carter. Out of the “Big Three” only Goodwin has scheduled an official visit with UGA.
