Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Felton fills up

Monday April 14, 2008

The AJC is reporting that Georgia basketball has added a fifth and final member to its incoming 2008 freshman class. 6’4″ G Ebuka Anyaorah will sign with Georgia on Wednesday.

Anyaorah will join Travis Leslie as spring additions to a strong class that already included Howard Thompkins, Dustin Ware and Drazen Zlovaric.

You can’t blame Dennis Felton for looking at the short term, but the decision to take a full class of five this year will have an impact on Georgia’s strategy for the promising 2009 class. Unless there is further attrition (unfortunately a fact of life with Georgia basketball lately), Georgia will have a full load of 13 scholarship players next season.

With Billy Humphrey and Terrence Woodbury as the only rising scholarship seniors, the numbers tell us that there’s only room for two signees next year. PG DeMario Mayfield has already committed, so is there only room for one more commitment for 2009? And is that single scholarship reserved pending the decision of superstar PF Derrick Favors?
