With the Fall signing period about 70 days away, Coach Fox picked up his third commitment of the 2012 class. Brandon Morris (6'7" 195 lb small forward) from Miller Grove High School committed to sign with UGA following his recruiting visit.
Various sites are reporting that Coach Fox hosted over a dozen prospects in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 classes this weekend during the UGA vs. SC game. Morris was on his official visit, and came away impressed.
Both Rivals and Scout list him as a solid 3 star kid. He's a kid who rattles around the Top 100-150 in the rankings; however, his offer list is what impresses me. He is reported to have offers from Georgia Tech, NC State, Clemson, Arkansas, Memphis and Auburn. Some sites also credit him with offers from Kansas State, Florida and Florida State.
It's a good pick up. The class still needs a Shaq Goodwin (Top 25 national prospect at PF). Dan MacDonald at UGASports.com says he's hearing that Goodwin might be backing off his desire to play football and basketball at the next level. A basketball only commitment to UGA for Fox would be enormous.
Land a Top 25 kid every year like Caldwell-Pope and Goodwin plus a few solid role players who will stick for four seasons, and you can build a nice sustainable program. Fox just has to close the big gun for 2012.
