The University of Georgia’s basketball program has been in a state of turmoil since the firing of former Head Coach, Mark Fox, at the end of the 2018 season. Since then the program has made big changes by hiring new Head Coach, Tom Crean, and the assistants that Tom Crean brought with him to Athens. Since the new hire the Dawgs have seen glimpses of greatness, but still hold a 10-13 record overall and a 1-9 record in the SEC.
Like many head coaches in their first year, the chemistry isn’t very strong between the new coach and the current players. Many new coaches rely on recruiting to bring in new talent and rebuild a program. Tom Crean is doing just that. This weekend, the NO. 2 player in the country, Anthony Edwards, committed to play basketball at The University of Georgia under Tom Crean.
This huge commit from a such a promising player is sure to bring attention to the program that Crean was hired to build and will likely lead to landing other big name prospects that desire to play with Crean and Edwards. This commitment could lead to a stable, dominating program for the Dawgs in the future.
