Exciting news came to UGA this past week with the announcement of No. 1 prospect Anthony Edwards, five-star commit heading to Athens in the fall. Anthony Edwards is a 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard. He had an outstanding performance at the National Hoop Fest last month with 41 points and 11 rebounds.
Edwards is projected to be a future top 10 overall selection in the first round of the NBA draft. He is compared to the current NBA scoring leader James Harden of the Houston Rockets. Anthony Edwards will be the highest rated signee for Georgia basketball in the internet recruiting era.
It has been years since UGA basketball has been a top caliber team. With the addition of Edwards, it is possible we could once again see a Georgia basketball team at the top of the SEC. Tom Crean has also been able to get four-star Jaykwon Walton (small forward from Montgomery, Alabama) and four-star Toumani Camara (small forward from Hollywood, Florida).
With the incoming recruits, UGA has climbed to the No. 3 class in the SEC and the No. 12 class in the nation. Hopefully UGA can change things around next season after a not-so-hot season this year. Only time will tell.
