Florida Seven-Footer Decides

Not too many people have heard much about Rashaad Singleton, but the 7-foot-1, 220-pound Graceville High (Fla.) big man was on the radar for a handful of schools - and he opted to get it done early.

Rashaad Singleton, a 7-foot-1, 220-pound rising senior at Graceville High (Fla.) who plays with the Georgia Hawks, committed to Georgia.

``I took an unofficial there and it went real well," Singleton said. "I like their style of play."

``Coach (Dennis) Felton is a great coach and he's worked with David Robinson at Navy and Shaquille O'Neal in the Olympics. I know he can help develop me."

Singleton, who averaged 14.5 points, nine boards and eight blocks per game as a junior, also received interest from Florida State, Southern Illinois, Miami, Auburn and Alabama. Singleton will give the Bulldogs a defensive presence and shot-blocker who can also run the floor extremely well for a player his size. He joins guards Louis Williams and Mike Mercer as Georgia pledges in the Class of 2005. Singleton, who just turned 17 last month, will play in the Nike All-American Camp in July.
