Last year Lalanne averaged 17 points, 14 rebounds, 3 blocked shots, and 2 assists a game while being named All-Orlando.His other official visits were Ole Miss, UMass and Virginia Commonwealth.
UGASports.com says he has a roughly a 7'2" wing span and shoots the ball well. Rivals has him as the #142 ranked player in the country. If you're going out of state, they need to be Top 150 players. That basically means you're projected as a high major prospect. When we venture out of state to sign kids off the radar like Felton loved doing, it makes me want to put my fist through a backboard (if I could reach one).
In my opinion, the Dawgs desperately need a small forward / wing type player to go along with a beefy big man. I hear rumblings of at least one more Top 100 player that may sign, but I'm unsure of position. Fox plays it closer to the vest than Felton did with those around the program so info is tougher to come by.
Speaking of UGA hoops, the Macon Telegraph has an article about the defense today. Last week, they did a piece on the offense. Defense is going to come a helluva lot easier to this group than offense. The last coaching staff really struggled to establish or teach any sort of competent ball movement, player movement away from the ball or spacing. The triangle offense needs all three of those things. Oh...and makers instead of shooters.
I like where the basketball team is going, but it'll be a work in progress growing into the schemes. The rumblings I'm hearing are all positive.
I may not post again til Sunday. Jumping in the car heading to Jax shortly.
