Post Felton lands a big ‘un

Tuesday September 20, 2005

As soon as Dennis Felton arrived in Athens in 2003, he began recruiting…the class of 2007. Even back then when junior high was barely in the rearview mirror, it was becoming clear that the class of 2007 would be one of the best collections of basketball talent ever produced by the state of Georgia.

So while Felton made the effort to recruit well in the short-term (crowned by the signings of Mercer and Williams last season), his aim continued (and continues) to be on 2007. He hit the pavement and began developing the relationships that would be neccessary to compete for these prospects against more successful programs. Keeping as much of that in-state talent at home as possible would set Georgia basketball up very nicely.

The first fruits of that effort came yesterday as Jeremy Price, a 6’9″ 260 lb. junior PF from Decatur, committed to Georgia. Price had been getting interest from, among others, Kansas and Indiana.

Things are looking up in hoops land. Price is only one commitment, but if his pledge is any indication of the quality of Felton’s 2007 recruiting effort, watch out.
