The state of Georgia had some pretty good basketball players hitting college campuses for fall 2008. Out of the Rivals 150 top players, 16 were from Georgia.
Of course UGA can't sign all 16, but we did sign 3. In order to assess how Georgia's recruiting has panned out, I thought it might be useful to see how Thompkins, Ware, and Leslie have measured up against the other players from Georgia that were part of the 2008 Rivals 150.
1st in scoring, 4th in shooting percentage, and 3rd in rebounding. He's also 4th in free throw shooting percentage, and 2nd in 3-point shooting.
9th in scoring, 14th in shooting percentage, 1st in assists.
4th in scoring, 5th in shooting percentage, 4th in rebounding.
Note: This analysis is just an early snap-shot. As the schedules get tougher, the results will surely change. At any rate, in a future post, I'll put up the information that is available now for each player. I may do a follow-up review half-way through the conference schedule and then again at the end.
