There were rumors that UGA could land its third homegrown basketball recruit from Georgia this weekend, but it didn’t happen.
Brandon Morris, one of Georgia’s top college basketball prospects, took an official visit to UGA. Morris is a 6-foot-7 small forward from Miller Grove, the three-time defending Class AAAA state champions.
“He liked Georgia, but no … Brandon didn’t commit,” Miller Grove basketball coach Sharman White told the AJC. “I think he wants to take some more visits and research everything before he makes his college decision.”
UGA coach already has a pair of homegrown commitments for 2012 – Whitefield Academy’s Kenny Gaines and Milton’s Charles Mann. Fox hMark Foxas two more scholarships available, and is targeting Morris.
“Brandon enjoyed his visit and said he liked a lot of things about Coach Fox and his staff,” White said. “He likes the academics and the direction that Coach Fox is taking the basketball program.”
Morris will take official visits to Arkansas and Auburn within the next month. Numerous other colleges, including Tennessee, have also called to inquire about Morris. His Miller Grove teammate, power forward Tony Parker, is ranked as one of the nation’s top 25 overall prospects. Parker made a recruiting trip to Ohio State over the weekend, and will also take visits to Duke, Memphis, UCLA and Georgetown.
