|Harris gives early pledge|
Two off the board to Georgia
Mark Fox and his staff have put an emphasis on recruiting the state of Georgia. On Tuesday that paid off with a pair of commitments from in-state 2016 recruits. Jordan Harris, a 6-foot-4 guard out of Donalsonville (Ga.) Seminole County, and Tyree Crump (pictured above), of Bainbridge (Ga.) High, verbally committed to Fox and his staff. "I love everything about them," Harris told Scout.com. "The love not only from the coaches but from the players and students is crazy," Harris added when pressed on why he picked the Bulldogs.
Crump, a 6-foot-1 guard, cited the academic program that the Bulldogs offer, but also the bonds he built with the coaching staff when asked about this decision.
"I just think that's the best school for me," he said. "I fit well with the program and I built great relationships with the coaches."
Both Harris and Crump played with Showtime Hoops on the spring and summer circuit. Harris is a lefty with pretty good athleticism and strong driving ability, while Crump has impressive speed, handles the ball well and scores the ball well attacking the basket. They each have potential as perimeter defenders.
Both Harris and Crump are regarded as three-star prospects on Scout.com. They are the first two recruits to commit to Georgia in the 2016 class.
