A quick glance at UGA’s early 2013 recruiting efforts

Coach Mark Fox currently has one member in his incoming 2013 recruiting class – 5’8″ point guard J.J. Frazier out of Faith Baptist Christian Academy in Ludowici, Georgia.

According to ESPN, UGA has offered 9 prospects for the upcoming 2013 season.  Surprisingly, only one player other than Frazier hails from Georgia, with the remaining seven kids residing in neighboring southeastern states as well as the midwest.

The 2012 crop of new Bulldogs – Kenny Gaines, Charles Mann, Brandon Morris and Houston Kessler – all come from the greater metro Atlanta area.

However, in 2011 Fox only secured one in-state commitment – Kentavious-Caldwell Pope – to go along with a slew of out-of-staters in Nemi Djurisic, Tim Dixon, John Florveus and John Cannon.

This past recruiting season, Coach Fox went after and missed on several big in-state names – Tony Parker, Shaq Goodwin and Robert Carter, just to name a few.

Will the 2013 class of Bulldog signees be composed mostly of home-grown talent, or will Fox have to get creative and look for players outside of Georgia?
