UGA Basketball: Could Mark Fox Pull Off A Recruiting Stunner?
He has already been labeled the nation's top developer of offensive talent. Now, Georgia Basketball coach is trying to pull another stunner landing one of the nation's top players over college basketball's elite.
Tony Parker was long thought to be an Ohio State vs Duke battle, but UGA has entered the picture this season and appears to be coming on strong at the end. Parker's high school teammate Brandon Morris has signed with Georgia and it is believed Parker has visited Stegeman Coliseum for at least three games this season.
Parker's most recent visit was to Kansas this past weekend to watch the Jayhawks defeat Missouri in Overtime in what could only be described as a fantastic atmosphere to entertain the McDonald's All-American.
So what gives Bulldog fans reason for hope?
Parker said last week on ESPNU he would "shock the world" with his college choice. Also, the Parker household may be split on where Tony will play which could lead to a compromise of playing in Athens.
Parker's dad said his son will likely announce at the McDonald's All-American Game on March 28.
