Georgia lands heralded in-state prospect

Posted on: July 18, 2010 11:16 am
 

McDonald's All-American candidate Kentavious Caldwell committed to Georgia this weekend, becoming the most heralded prospect to pledge his allegiance to the Bulldogs under second-year coach Mark Fox.

“The reason I did it was because [of] the coach, and [it's] close to home,” Caldwell told Scout.com. "... I hope I can help turn things around."

Scout.com ranks Caldwell 13th nationally in the Class of 2011. The 6-foot-5 wing from Georgia picked Georgia over Tennessee, Florida State, Clemson and Alabama. He was reportedly the first prospect Fox went to see after being hired at Georgia from Nevada in April 2009.

Caldwell's commitment means seven of Scout.com's top 15 prospects in the Class of 2011 are now off the board. The six in addition to Caldwell are No. 1 Michael Gilchrist (Kentucky), No. 4 James McAdoo (North Carolina), No. 6 Marquis Teague (Kentucky), No. 7 Brad Beal (Florida), No. 8 Myck Kabongo (Texas), and No. 11 Wayne Blackshear (Louisville).

Nice to finally land a big time in state recruit; now if we can just start to land some of those Atlanta recruits things will really start to gain some momentum; Looking forward to to seeing him play along side Travis Leslie.

Great pick up for coach Fox and UGA. He proved last year he could coach up a down team. Now he is starting to prove he can recruit. If he follows up with a NCAA tourny bid this year his recruiting should take off even more. Now UGA just has to make sure they can keep him for the long run.
