ATHENS, Ga. -- I'm on football duty this weekend, here covering LSU-Georgia. But before coming over to Sanford Stadium I spent Saturday morning at the Bulldogs' basketball practice facility, where a number of the best high school prospects from the state of Georgia were hanging out -- among them Jelan Kendrick.
MaxPreps.com ranks Kendrick No. 16 in the Class of 2010.
The 6-foot-5 guard from Marietta, Ga., played with the Memphis Magic Elite in the summer and helped that team -- which also featured Joe Jackson, Cris Crawford, Tarik Black and Adonis Thomas -- win the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas. He's still considering a host of schools (everybody from Kentucky to Memphis to Georgia Tech to Tennessee), but a couple of people close to Kendrick said Georgia is a realistic option for the in-state star because he understands he's the type of prospect who could be a program-changer from the start for first-year coach Mark Fox.
