Lot to Like

In this post-commitment interview with Marcus Thornton.

Marcus Thornton was the first big "get" of the Mark Fox era at UGA--the first Mr. Georgia Basketball in forever to commit and actually show up on campus.

I really liked the fact that Thornton mentioned that he wanted to help UGA start a "dynasty." With the Kentavious Caldwell commitment following, perhaps the train is finally starting to roll in Athens.

Best of all, I think Marcus Thornton has enough skill to play on the wing for Georgia. He envisions himself playing mostly on the wing, and that's great news. If he works really hard prior to the season, he could be freshman of the year.

I don't know if anyone is going to keep this kid out of the starting lineup this year.

His athleticism is off the charts. There is quite a bit of Youtube footage of him, and some of his dunks are unreal.

This team has gotten really good, really fast. If Robinson can be a 12-14 PPG guy and Leslie has improved his stroke, I can see them winning 23 games.
