A Little More on Favors

including N.C. State's interest in him and his work on fundamentals.

I don't like N.C. State having repeated success recruiting in Georgia. Doesn't bode well for the future.

At any rate, Lowe's team is among the schools that Favors will visit. I guess they might feel that the state of Georgia owes them one for 'Nique. Since they got Richard Howell and Lorenzo Brown, that's all the repayment they should get for the next 6 or 7 classes.

It was good to read the remarks of Coach Michael Reddick. Sounds like a very solid guy. I understand that he played internationally at one point, and that as a former pro at the center position, he works very well on teaching big guys.

Coach Reddick made the comparison that I did during the last day or two. Favors reminds him of Tim Duncan. Reddick also mentioned Kevin Garnett. Hadn't thought about Garnett, but Garnett might be an even better comparison than Duncan.

I'd love to get Favors. He's the kind of recruit that we need. Head on straight. Great player. If he comes in and teams up with Howard Thompkins, UGA would have very, very exciting games.
