Tyler Whatley

Has apparently joined the UGA squad as a walk-on.

The walk-ons have some serious fire-power this year. Corey Butler, Tyler Whatley, and Ricky McPhee give the Dawgs some capability from the non-scholarship part of the roster. Should make practices more competitive.

Whatley is a big body. 6' 9", 220 lbs. He scored 1685 points in his high school career, to go with 976 rebounds and 351 blocked shots. He averaged 21 pts, 11 rebounds and 3.5 blocked shots. His high school, Apalachee, retired his high school number.

Whatley had some good games at Wofford, including 11 points against the Stephen Curry-led Davidson team. His production dipped last year, from averaging 7 points and 5 boards down to 5 points and 3 boards.
