Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Bigger weekend for football or hoops this weekend?

Wednesday August 27, 2008

Of course the season opener with Georgia Southern has the attention of most Bulldog fans this weekend, but there’s also a basketball player in town on his official visit who singlehandedly has the ability to give a big boost to Georgia’s basketball fortunes.

6’9″ big man Derrick Favors – one of the top 5 prospects in the nation – will be in Athens on his official visit this weekend. Though he’s considered a one-and-done player, he also has the ability to make that one year very special for his chosen team, and that special season couldn’t come at a better time for Georgia or Dennis Felton.

Favors is playing his recruitment very coolly, and we shouldn’t expect big news out of this weekend. He’s considering several other schools and will take additional visits. Still, this is Georgia’s chance to put its best foot forward in the Favors sweepstakes, and there won’t be a more important prospect – football or otherwise – in Athens for a while.
