September 13, 2012Important weekend for Dawgs
It's not necessarily a big weekend on the football field for Georgia as the Bulldogs take on the Owls from Florida Atlantic. However, it looks like it could be a very important weekend for Mark Fox's basketball program as he's set to host a few important visitors this weekend.
Probably the most important visitor for UGA is Mississippi big man Dwight Coleby. After taking an official visit to Memphis last weekend, the 6'9 post player will be making his way to Athens this weekend to see what the University of Georgia has to offer. The Dawgs have one scholarship left in the 2013 class and would prefer to use it on a post player like Coleby, who is ranked as the 146th best prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com. Besides Georgia and Memphis, Ole Miss and Mississippi State are also trying to earn his signature.
A few talented in-state underclassmen will also be in Athens to take in the football game on Saturday night. Local star William Jackson has been on campus a number of times being that he goes to Athens Christian, but it's always good for the Dawgs to get him on campus as much as possible. Augusta area sophomore point guard Reggie Reid will also be in attendance as will the top point guard in Georgia's freshman class, Aaron Augustin. Norcross two-sport star Lorenzo Carter is another prospect that will make the short trip over to Georgia on Saturday, but his visit is more of a football visit.
GT set to host commit, top target
Georgia Tech's top priority in the 2013 was to lock up a top point guard and they did just that earlier this year when Solomon Poole pledged to the Yellow Jackets. He'll take his official visit this weekend, but he won't be the only official visitor on Georgia Tech's campus.
Marist small forward Quinton Stephens, who took his first official visit to Clemson last weekend, will spend the weekend at Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech has long been considered the favorite in his recruitment and this weekend gives Brian Gregory's staff another shot to impress the long, versatile forward. Following his visit to Georgia Tech, he will be in Miami next weekend and will finish up his official visit tour with a trip to Tennessee at the end of the month. A decision should come shortly after the Tennessee visit.
