Lalanne To Play Long Career In SEC

Mark Fox's Georgia Bulldogs recruited insider Cady Lalanne and will sign him in two weeks.

Cady Lalanne, absolutely no relation to fitness guru Jack Lalanne, is headed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Ole Miss, Virginia Commonwealth and Massachusetts comprised the final lists.

Lalanne, a 6-foot-9 center out of Oak Ridge High, was a spring phenomenon. He made a meteoric rise with his game.

"What happened was Derek Heard became his high school and travel coach and put a ton of time into him this spring," Florida Rams coach Matt Ramker. "(Heard) developed him and the dividends showed in July."

Lalanne is a long post guy with bounce around the cup. His length allows him to rebound in traffic. His best basketball is ahead of him.

"I think they really sold Cady on developing as a post player. Mark Fox has a track record of Nevada of developing guys into first round picks."
