The guard is known for his ability to stroke the basketball. Toney is very comfortable from behind the arc and has great range. His mid-range game will be a big asset in the SEC and he's a more than capable scorer with great genes. His father Andrew Toney, was a terrific guard for a number of NBA teams.
"I really liked the coaching staff and coach Felton," Toney said. "Playing close to home was a plus."
Tennessee and Georgia were his two finalists.
"[Georgia tries] to recruit guys like myself. They mention how they want to recruit good guys to build a program. Some guys would shy away from the situation but it's a good thing for me.
"There's not going to be a lot of guards and they said I should get a lot of playing time."
And Toney has an eye on the future. His personal laundry list includes a pair of a Georgia Stars from the Class of 2005 and one big heavy hitter from the current senior crop.
