Felton Signs Two

ATHENS - Georgia basketball coach Dennis Felton ventured scarcely beyond his own backyard to bring in his two newest additions to the Bulldog program. Center Daniel Miller of Loganville and guard DeMario Mayfield of Carnesville both signed national letters-of-intent today to attend Georgia and play next season for the Bulldogs, Felton announced Wednesday.

³We are thrilled to have Daniel and DeMario joining our Georgia Basketball family," Felton said. "Not only are they tremendously talented basketball players, but they also bring more of the same personal attributes that are so important to us: enthusiasm, integrity and passion for doing something special. They are going to be terrific Bulldogs!"

Miller is currently a senior at Loganville Christian Academy. Miller averaged 28.8 points, 12.3 rebounds and 7.0 blocks per game in leading LCA to the 2008 championship of the Independent Christian Schools of Georgia-Alabama (ICSGA). It was Loganville¹s second straight title.

"Daniel has a very exciting future," Felton said. "For a player of his size, he has tremendous hands, touch and instincts for the game. He can score with his back to the basket and also facing up to 18 feet. He also has a real knack for rebounding and blocking shots, most of which he keeps in play."

Mayfield, at 6-4 and 190 pounds, is beginning his senior season at Franklin County High School in Carnesville. As a junior last season, he averaged 24.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game for the Lions.

"DeMario is long, athletic and versatile," Felton said. "I believe he can be equally comfortable and effective on and off the ball. His size and versatility should provide us with many options during the course of his career. DeMario also has the ability to be a tough, tough defender."
