Speaking of UAB,

one source has reported that Georgia is interested in Casey Mitchell, a verbal commit to UAB for 2009.

I really don't see Georgia getting seriously involved here. Georgia does need a shooter, and Casey Mitchell can do that. He is a pre-season JUCO all-american down at Chipola Junior College in Florida. However, I don't think Coach Felton is convinced that JUCO players will help Georgia's program much.

Besides the JUCO issue, Georgia is limited in scholarships. Mitchell would be a 2009 signee, and having only one scholarship for 2009, Georgia will keep that open until April of 2009, when Derrick Favors is projected to make a decision on where he goes to college.

Tennessee and Arkansas are also said to be interested in Mitchell. I think he honors his verbal and ends up at UAB.
