Festus Ezeli, Exhibit A for Projects

Ezeli's performance against Georgia is both good news and bad news for the Dawgs.

It's bad news because Festus is a player. He has rounded into a key contributor for Vandy, and they don't need any help. Their court is help enough. Add to that the fact that they apparently got all the foul calls, then their home court advantage should win them two or three extra games this year.

Ezeli is a physical post player. He'll get rebounds and block shots. Now he has some decent moves around the bucket, too.

The good news is that Georgia is apparently bringing in two Festus Ezeli-type players this year. Tim Dixon is a lanky player that needs to build muscle. He has some shot-blocking skill already. John Florveus is a 7-footer that might just end up anchoring the middle for the Dawgs in future years.

Big men develop slowly. Hopefully, UGA will have enough success in recruiting to allow our incoming post players to bulk up physically and develop their talent.
