UGA Hoops Recruiting Hodgepodge

Let me first point out that Mark Fox and Co. have offered yet ANOTHER big man for the 2011 class (not John Cannon). 6-8 PF Richard Peters, who originally committed to Oklahoma, is currently attending Westwood Prep in Arizona, and has apparently garnered the interest of UGA coaches. He is an interesting case in that he could graduate early and be part of the 2011 class. If this is the case, then UGA now has TWO (Peters and John Cannon) outstanding offers to 2011 big men (at least). Here is a small video of Peters in action:

The reason I say "at least" two big men is because apparently, another 2011 PF, 6-7 Jared Guest, has also gotten attention from UGA. No word yet if we actually have an offer out but it looks as though we are vigorously trying to sign another low-post player for 2011. As I mentioned last week, this leads me to believe that one of our currently signed big men (Tim Dixon/John Florveus/Nemanja Djurisic) could be in academic trouble. I have no proof of this but...Fox isn't afraid to sign "borderline academic" guys (Cady Lalanne anyone?). **CLICK HERE for a video of Guest in action (sorry...I wasn't able to embed this one into our site)**

Also, on the Kevin Ware front, according to the AJC (per this Louisville site), we are playing second fiddle to Louisville right now, but he does still have UGA under consideration. We'll keep you updated....
