Georgia basketball addresses backcourt needs by signing JJ Frazier, Juwan Parker

By the way, Wednesday was the first day of the early signing period for NCAA basketball. And the Georgia Bulldogs took full advantage.

Bulldogs coach Mark Fox on Wednesday announced the signing of JJ Frazier, a point guard from Glennville, and Juwan Parker, a shooting guard from Tulsa, Okla. Both will help address Georgia’s backcourt needs after it loses seniors Sherrard Brantley and Vincent Williams after this season. CLICK HERE to read more about the the newest Hoop Dogs.

Frazier is beginning his senior season at Faith Baptist Christian Academy in Ludowici. He averaged 26.2 points, 4.9 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 3.1 steals per game last season for the Crusaders, who won 33 games in 2012. The 5-9, 160-pound guard is considered the state’s top prospect at his position in the Class of 2013.

Parker is currently a senior at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa. He averaged 20.5 points and 9.4 rebounds as a junior at Washington, which won Oklahoma 5A state championships in his freshman and sophomore seasons. The 6-4, 190-pounder is rated the nation’s No. 30 shooting guard prospect by Scout.com, No. 39 by Rivals.com.

OK. Solid class. Fits their needs.

Now UGA grads, put your butts in the seats and support the program.

I’m telling you, Coach Fox is going to make these guys a contender. The bench is getting deeper and with the competition for playing time, everyone should be stepping up their game. Even with the disappointing start, I think we’ll see significant improvement this year and with more solid signings, a great future for Georgia basketball. Now,if only fans would show up for the games…

Went to one Dawg basketball game last year. It was fun but it would have been better if more people would have came.

Gary…it’s been 4 years. In year 4, a coach has all his players. Well, we just lost to Youngstown State. It’s hard to get excited to go to a game to see that.

Georgia has ZERO chance of doing anything until they find a REAL Coach. Better switch to 1-AA to compete. Mark Fox record speaks for itself. Cant recruit, cant land big players and nobody wants to come to Georgia.
Mark Fox is the equivalent to Ray Goff , what a waste of money.

RMikeI58 – I don’t see the correlation between Goff & Fox. That makes no sense. Fox is a great coach.

Personally I like Mark Fox….but if your a really good coach does it really take this long to build a competitive team? When you lose to a team like Youngstown State that says a lot about the status of your team. Georgia deserves more than an average basketball team. If Florida can field a team that competes every year for titles so should Georgia. Our facilities are just as good…..and so should the quality of the players on the team. You would think that our athletic director would make sure of that…..after all he was around the Florida progam for a number of years and should know what it takes to build a winner.Fans are not fooled…..when the level of play increases the attendence at the games will also increase….its a proven fact……Georgia fans deserve better….so does the school!

Maybe if UGA hires Felton to recruit the players, Fox can coach them to 1 game over .500 and a first round loss in the NCAA tourney.

4 years in and you lose to MIGHTY Youngstown State at home on ESPN U……. in front of tens of fans. McGarity, if you wanted a laughing stock of a program with an apathetic fan base….. CONGRATS…. You got it!!!!

Who is in charge of the guy who is in charge…… b/c this has to stop… immediately…. or not…. save my time, effort, and money. If they dont care, why should we!!!

Bottom line…UGA will never attract bigtime basketball recruits because the school is too racist and filled with too many hillbillies and socially insensitive and uneducated people..

RMike — you are a jerk. Goff was not the best headcoach at UGA but how many times did he beat Ga. Tech? His offense excelled at UGA — his problem was getting a good DC. Moreover, you jerk, as a player, he was one of the best at UGA and got us into the Sugar Bowl. But I guess you forgot that jerkface.

Hey Moby…you must be a Tech fan to make a statement like that. What an idiot you are. Go ahead and name one thing that Georgias done for you to call them racist?…you can’t do it can you?…because you either couldn’t get in Georgia because your a dumbass or are just running your mouth like all Tech fans do!…..Take the last five letters off your last name and that says it all about what you are!

Moby is exactly correct…. I mean, any school that hires Tubby and Felton….. builds a state of the art practice facility, and spent millions in arena up grades …… obviously hillbilly and racist.

I think Moby either was not accepted into UGA or had zero social skills and couldnt score a date….. we know the racist part is not correct….. so he must be a zero w/ the ladies…… but he’s a tough talker on the internet….. nice work, now clean up your room…in your parents basement.

Felton was a better recruiter than Fox. Name one bigtime recruit that Fox has brought in . The guy over at Tech is out recruiting Fox,plus he won with the players Felton left.

They know we better get rid of Fox while some natives are restless before the turn around is complete.

Problem with the seating is if you just go occasionally the available tickets are well away from the floor as season ticket holders have most of the lower seats and generally they don’t show and all those seats are empty while you sit high above the court. UGA should make a policy that if seats are not filled by midway first half you are free to move to empty seats.

That’s good because we definitely need help!! We’ll be lucky to win 5 games in the SEC this year and my guess would be 3-13 in the SEC.

Vel Crow: I would call Pope, a 5 Star, a big time recruit. But I totally agree with your point and assessment. .

‘94: don’t forget the expanded and unbalanced schedule this season… 18 game SEC Schedule……. but I am in line with your thinking……. hoping for 3!!!

Let’s see, he just signed the states top point guard and the nations 30 (or 39th depending on which one you ascribe to) shooting guard. Those seem like pretty big time recruits.

Most of the season ticket holders wait until January to start coming to the games. Let’s face the facts…it is a long drive from Atlanta (where most of the ticket holders live) to watch the early season games. You have got to give Mark Fox credit for playing more tough teams early including #1 Indiana next Monday, but most other mid tier SEC teams have the same seating problems that we do (Carolina game was mostly empty last night). Donors are still paying thousands to have priority seating and I doubt that UGA will be interested in the $15 crowd running all over the coliseum jumping into their seats.

Last year for Fox. Bank on it” When he first came he had some residual talent and he won some games. It’s been going south in a hurry since. How can anybody be excited about this team.

The Dogs had a game at Sedgemann tonight. They lost to Pascagoula Technical and didn’t score a point over a seven minute stretch of the first half. I will never hear of a Dog fan talking about lack of fans at any GT game. There was not more than 500 total there. Half of those were Mark Fox family and Mark Richt. Richt should be studying film on the triple option and Fox needs to find another occupation.. What a joke!!

I have watched tech play plenty of games with an empty house
And when acc play starts most of those folks come to see the other team
So you are WRONG
