Recruiting - Hoops

The class of 2007 is shaping up as a potential blockbuster for the Jackets. The only disappointment - not a bunch of scholarships to give out. This on Gani Lawal, a VERY talented player who has been to campus and has GT on his list along with Duke, Kentucky, Bama, Auburn, UGAg....... Here's another kid, Gary Johnson, who is receiving interest from the GT staff, although he seems enamoured with Roy Williams and Coach K....... Here's more random recruiting notes from a Kentucy site.

For the class of 2005, things might not be over yet. The Jackets are looking for another big guy. While not a center, the Jackets appear interested in 6'7" Martellus Bennett. A dual-sport guy (tight-end in football), he is considering both sports.

In a look back at last year's recruiting, this on the top stories in the state of GA, including Randolph Morris chosing KY over GT. Of course they forgot to mention that Morris was looking for something less challenging academically. By the way, he was so close to chosing the NBA, and now he is dominating the collegiate game with 10 pts and 4 boards per game.
