    Welcome to Bulldog nation Mr Edwards

  • how2fishhow2fish Posts: 96 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Best of luck to the young man on the field and in the class room! And Congrats to Coach Crean !

    Edwards is the highest ranked player to ever commit to Georgia. The Bulldogs' previous top recruit was Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who was ranked No. 12 in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

    If Tom Crean can grab a recruit or 2 like this every year then he will turn this program around fast.

    Great job Coach Crean. Welcome to Bulldawg nation Mr. Edwards.

    Not sure someone like this will come our way every year or 2, but Kessler the following year might really get the ball rolling.

    Sweet. Cant wait to crush Tennessee next season in Thompson-Bolling. 🤠🤡

    That is what this means, right?

  • SECFan13SECFan13 Posts: 145 ✭✭✭ Junior

    That was a great get.

  • Gwinnett_DawgGwinnett_Dawg Posts: 48 ✭✭ Sophomore

    Ant MAn will be recruiting some AAU buddies to come with him!

    My take based off what I had read about him was potentially a more athletic Harden, and finally seeing highlights, I like that take, and also see a bigger Donovan Mitchell. This is a huge get and it makes it important next year to at least make a jump back to being decent.

    I can actually see him being the main ballhandler for the team next year. I don't know if I said it here, but despite that, I'd still look to the grad transfer market to try to get a PG that can be 3/D and penetrate.

    Congrats to Crean! This is HUGE!!

  • MinnesotaDawgMinnesotaDawg Posts: 378 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    There will be skeptics and cynics, of course. But you have to start somewhere. For a program that has only one direction to go.....this is fantastic news. Great job, Coach Crean!

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 1,699 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    For those who don't follow prep basketball closely or haven't watched tape yet, Edwards is the REAL DEAL. Already projects as the top pick in the NBA draft for 2020 and just has a beautiful (almost flawless) game. He's going to be so much fun to watch.

    And I don't mind the one and done. That's standard today for the best players. Nothing we can do about it. So I plan to enjoy every minute of next season, grateful to see this kid in a Georgia uniform. Thank you Coach Crean.

    I'm shocked at this.

  • Dawg94Dawg94 Posts: 140 ✭✭✭ Junior

    As a unc bball fan this is a fantastic get for the dawgs. I'd like to see the team get to the tourney every year if possible so I can start pulling for both teams 🤣

  • UnderDog68UnderDog68 Posts: 2,091 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    What an actor.....Loved him playing Goose in 'Top Gun.'

  • BigcalidawgBigcalidawg Posts: 1,125 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    We have 2 other ESPN Top 100 kids leaning strongly our way, as well. Next season will be interesting.

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 1,699 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @Bigcalidawg are you talking about Walton & Camara (who have already committed) or Achiuwa & Quinones (who Edwards said he'd be recruiting- but don't currently have UGA listed), or are there other top 100 guys that we have a good shot at?

  • orlandoorlando Posts: 1,329 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Where does this class rank now ? 12th or better ?

  • AnotherDawgAnotherDawg Posts: 1,699 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I think ANT moved us to 12. If we land our other targets we can be top 5 (is my guess).

    Thanks @brentwilson- I didn't catch that.

  • brentwilsonbrentwilson Posts: 2,171 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    i also saw he liked the Edwards commitment. i’m wondering if maybe we would recruit him to be a PG.

  • HunkerDown1MoreTimeHunkerDown1MoreTime Posts: 555 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Huge get!!! Dude is a beast!! Only thing im worried about is , 1 year and NBA. Hope he stays longer though!

  • BigcalidawgBigcalidawg Posts: 1,125 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    I only say that because of past commits who have de committed.

  • brentwilsonbrentwilson Posts: 2,171 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    He’s a one and done. Nothing to worry about. He’ll come in and change the tone for Georgia basketball and start a trend.
