Donte To The Dawgs

Senior Donte Williams ended his recruitment on Wednesday and secured himself an SEC scholarship.

The Georgia Bulldogs infiltrated one of the state's most talented programs and came away with a commitment. Donte Williams, a 6-foot-9 senior, committed to the Dawgs after receiving interest from Georgia Southern, VCU, Tennessee, UAB and Central Florida.

"We've been waiting on him and he finally did it," Miller Grove coach Sharman White told "He finally committed.

Williams averaged 13 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks as a senior. "Those numbers could have been a lot more but we had Tony Parker and Henry Brooks. All three of them averaged about the same. We tried to get them all an equal amount of touches. He played big for us all year and he was the 4-A player of the year in the state."

Williams' commitment not only gives the Bulldogs a nice post player, but it may open a door for Mark Fox at one of the state's top programs. Miller Grove produced Mfon Udofia last year and has Henry Brooks and Tony Parker in the pipeline behind Williams.

For Williams, Fox's track record was a selling point. "I think he was intrigued by Coach Fox and his staff and the body of work that they put in. Coach Fox does a good job with power forwards and wing guys. That's what really intrigued him about Georgia. His family can come see him play and they should have a good returning group."
