Julian Royal Update: Tech, Georgia Basketball Target Visits UGA

The AJC's Michael Cavell has a report back from Julian Royal's official visit to Athens this past weekend. Royal is a top 100 prospect nationally and is considering the Bulldogs along with Georgia Tech and Wake Forest.

Royal's father on his son's visit:
“It was a great visit to Georgia, as Coach [Mark] Fox and his staff were very cordial,” said his father, Charles Royal. “We went to the football game, and anytime the Bulldogs kill somebody like that, it’s a great day in the Bulldog Country.”

While the visit went well, Royal is going to take all three visits before making a decision. He plans to visit Tech on Oct. 1 and Wake on Oct. 3

Interesting that Tech is bringing the 6'9" forward on an away football weekend when UGA brought him on a home one. Ironically, Tech is playing at Wake on October 2nd.

I would not count Wake out yet because they have pulled elite talent out of the Atlanta area recently, including recent NBA Lottery pick Al-Farouq Aminu.

But this battle likely comes down to Tech and UGA for Royal's choice. He has had longer contact with Paul Hewitt's staff, but the turnaround underway by Mark Fox has the young man listening.

The early signing period for basketball is November 10-17 and it looks like by the schedule of his visits Royal will have a decision by then.
