Post Recruits in the news

Monday May 5, 2008

First, an update on top basketball prospect Derrick Favors after an event in Kansas. His team dominated, and he used the occasion to work on his game.

“I don’t want to be just a post player, I want to be all-around, so I worked on a little jump shot, a little three-pointer, ball handling and passing,” the 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward from Atlanta said. “I wanted to just work on my guard skills, try something new, but I didn’t think they’d open up the lane like that.”

Though the Kansas account was laying it on thick, Georgia is still expected to be one of Favors’ favorites.

Rodney Garner, move over.

Second, the Tampa Tribune has an account of recent quarterback commitment Aaron Murray’s immediate impact on Georgia’s recruiting. Top offensive line prospect Austin Long was one of Murray’s first targets.

“I really thought about where I would commit and talked to my parents about it and prayed about it,” Long told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. “Then I was talking to Aaron Murray and he really helped. I asked him all kinds of questions and if he was still happy now that he has committed.

“He told me he was happy and he was going to recruit me until I committed. He told me he wanted to be a part of the No. 1 recruiting class.”

Murray has even bigger targets in mind including standout receiver prospect Marlon Brown. Murray considers his recruiting “my little job,” but that little job could have a huge impact on Georgia recruiting.
