The guys on Dukes & Bell talked about Tom Crean getting his first big win in recruiting for UGA basketball as 5-star Anthony Edwards committed to playing his college hoops for the Bulldogs Monday morning in their Strong Arm Story of the day.

Carl talked about how landing a recruit this caliber is unique for UGA.

“This doesn’t happen at Georgia," said Carl Dukes. "When’s the last time Georgia got a player like this, it’s just something that doesn’t happen. I think when you start talking about where Georgia basketball is, it’s not good right now, but ultimately talent wins and right now he doesn’t have it but he’s building it.”

Mike said that this will have an effect on the Dawgs' rival, Georgia Tech. 

“It’s big news; Georgia hasn’t meant anything since Harrick was there so this is great news for the Dawgs hoops program,” said Mike Bell. “I’ll tell what this does, it puts even more pressure on Josh Pastner at Georgia Tech because this is what they have been trying to do.”
