Georgia is keeping their borders well defended, having landed a third prospect from the Peach State in their 2012 recruiting class. The Bulldogs secured a verbal commitment from 6′-7″ small forward Brandon Morris of powerhouse Miller Grove (GA), who was considered to be their top target at the “3″ in this recruiting cycle.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Morris picked the Bulldogs over Arkansas and Auburn. Morris made a weekend official trip to Georgia, and did not make any other official visits.
Morris plays on a pre-season Top 30 high school basketball team, nationally. He made his decision shortly after a trip to campus. He will join shooting guard Kenny Gaines, and point guard Charles Mann as pledges to coach Mark Fox and Georgia.
Right now Georgia has three solid players in the fray, and are the underdogs for several of the elite in-state players that remain uncommitted to this point. The Peach State has three big men ranked within the top post players in the country in William “Shaq” Goodwin, Tony Parker and Robert Carter. Of the three, the Bulldogs has an outside shot at Goodwin, and isn’t considered a favorite of any of the three. Some positive in-state buzz won’t hurt, and Morris is a teammate with Parker at Miller Grove.
