HUGE Hoops Recruiting News for UGA's Chad Simmons is reporting that Felton has received a SIGNED letter of intent from JUCO All-Star Power Forward Takais Brown. Brown is a 6'8" 240 lb. banger who averaged around 20 points and 10 rebounds a game for Southeastern Illinois College (JC) last year.

Takais Brown scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in the JUCO All-Star game a few weeks ago. Felton beat out UNLV and Purdue (among others) for this kid's signature.

Given Georgia's incredibly weak play inside last year, the health of Dave Bliss and Terrence Woodbury and the raw nature of Singleton, this is potentially a huge, huge signee for the Dawgs. Felton desperately needs this kid to pan out and be an Anthony Evans, Shon Coleman, Lorenzo Hall type Juco (at a minimum) who can tough Georgia up down low and score some points.

If we could get 11 points and 8 rebounds a game for this kid, it would totally change the dymanics of our team.

Congrats to Felton. He busted his ass to recruit this kid.

Great news. If he's 70% of Anthony Evans, we'll be better. If he's 5% better than AE, we'll make the tournament. Potentially a huge, direction-changing development.

Of course, none of us have seen him play, so who knows?
