Review of Georgia Tech's hire for basketball coach = review of their football class
Brian Gregory? Yep, that deserves a "Ha ha!"
What Tennessee losing Bruce Pearl, turmoil in South Carolina, a weak hire by Georgia Tech who lacks local ties for recruiting, as well as no track record of producing NBA players or NCAA Tournament success, means either Mark Fox or Anthony Grant move into prime position to take their pick of the fertile Atlanta recruiting grounds.
What this means for Mark Fox? As said above, it opens a huge door for him to take advantage of with the critical 2012 recruiting class (which has more than half a dozen top 100 players nearby). Combined with the NBA labor situation being worse than the NFL's, that gives hope Trey Thompkins or Travis Leslie, if not both, may decide to stick around for their senior season instead of being locked out. It still requires work to be done, but Georgia basketball may be ready to explode. GATA Fox Hounds!
