Why This Recruiting Year is so Big for the Future of UGA Basketball

At the Atlanta Bulldog Club meeting the head basketball coach said the program has four scholarships to offer in a year loaded with talent in the state of Georgia.

UGA welcomed five players this past seasons so the Dennis Felton stamp on the roster has officially been removed.

Fox has already snared Charles Mann, a life long Georgia Tech fan, for one of those four spots stealing him away from the Yellow Jackets as well as FSU and UConn.

This is a huge recruiting year for Fox who will have to begin to rebuild the program after losing two players to the NBA from last year's NCAA Tournament. Those pieces will be placed around incoming freshman and McDonald's All-American Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

With such a stacked class in state, Fox has to take advantage of that talent base as well as the situation with his biggest rival going through a coaching change, playing off campus, and now on probation.

In addition to Mann, the Bulldogs are also in on top Georgia prospects Shaq Goodwin, Marcus Hunt, Kenny Gaines, and Robert Carter.
