In a separate article, alpha recruit Howard Thompkins III discusses his future with the AJC saying:
Players that plan on playing for Georgia next year are paying close attention, too. Howard Thompkins III, one of the top 10 power forwards in the nation according to scout.com and rivals.com, signed with the Bulldogs during the early period back in November along with two other prospects. He said nobody from Georgia has talked to him about Felton's status but he's certainly heard a lot about it from other people.That's about as positive of a comment as you can get in this situation. The worst thing that could happen would be to make a change and then lose your best recruits. His comments match other info that I've heard on the topic.
"If they make a change I plan on staying but I'd have to evaluate who the new coach is going to be and find out what his coaching style is," said Thompkins, who averaged 28 points and 10 rebounds for Class AA state champion Wesleyan this season. "But Coach Felton is the main reason I committed to Georgia. That and the teammates I'm going to have and the ones I'm going to bring with me. They aren't going anywhere as far as I can tell."
