Georgia Commits

The class of 2009 is shading up to be  a good class.  The State of Georgia has continued to show it's a great state for hoops.  Every D-1 college coach comes into this state at least once to see a prospect.  This year, NC State Coach Sidney Lowe landed two studs: 6-7 SF Richard Howell and 6-4 Combo Guard Lorenzo Brown.  Georgia Tech Coach Paul Hewitt has done something that I think hasn't been done at Georgia Tech and that is land three top players in the state in one year.  Big ups for Coach Hewitt for staying home and realizing there is top talent  in the state.
