Frazier, Parker sign with Georgia Basketball; Langura to walk-on?
Point guard J.J. Frazier and shooting guard Juwan Parker have signed national letters-of-intent to play for the Georgia Bulldogs, head coach Mark Fox has announced.
Frazier (5-9, 160) currently attends Faith Baptist Christian Academy in Ludowici, GA. Last season, he averaged 26.2 points, 4.9 assists, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.1 steals per game.
Frazier is rated as a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com. He chose UGA over an offer from Jacksonville and interest from Auburn and South Carolina.
“J.J. is a quick and dynamic playmaking point guard,” Fox said. “He has the ability to create plays for himself and other people. I really like his natural instincts for the game.”
Parker (6-5, 200) plays for Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, OK. As a junior, he averaged 20.5 points and 9.4 rebounds.
Rivals.com rates Juwan Parker as a 3-star recruit, the no. 39 shooting guard, and no. 139 in the 2013 Rivals150. Scout.com also rates him 3-stars and the no. 30 shooting guard. Parker signed with Georgia over Memphis, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Vanderbilt and others.
“Juwan is a very complete shooting guard,” Fox said. “His ability to shoot and score will be welcomed on the wing. I feel good about the versatility he will bring to that position for us.”
The early national signing period began November 14 and continues through Wednesday, Nov. 21, but Georgia is not expected to sign any additional recruits.
However, there are reports that guard Dusan Langura will play for Georgia next year as a preferred walk-on. Langura is a 6’4″ guard from Switzerland and he currently attends Furtah Prep School in Acworth, GA.
He reportedly has offers from College of Charleston, Lehigh, Texas A&M, and UMass, but has decided to take his shooting ability to Athens. You can see some of his highlights on Youtube.
