The Tevin Mack drama is scheduled to end next week. But don’t count on it. Mack’s mother says Mack will decide next week, but Mack has given no sign of his intentions. The list of most likely schools – Georgia, Kansas, and Texas, has doubled with UCLA, West Virginia and North Carolina joining the fray.

Mack’s weekend visit to Georgia spurred a flurry of predictions in the Dawgs favor – and a couple in Texas’ favor. “He’s been there like ten times,” his mother told Phil Kornblut of Kornblut, the best source for information on the Mack recruitment, also reminded his readers that Mack’s brother played for Georgia head coach Mark Fox at Nevada. Mack met with the entire Georgia staff on his most recent visit. If Mack continues to visit Athens, if Mack’s brother played for Fox and Fox has a good relationship with the Mack family, and if the Dawgs are pressing hard and Mack continues to avoid pledging to Georgia, it can’t be good news.

A visit to Austin and head coach Shaka Smart’s Texas program is possible. If Mack visit’s Texas, it could be curtains for Georgia in this recruiting drama. Once again, stay tuned.

Another potential graduate transfer big man has come on the market. Alonzo Nelson-Ododa, the shot blocking ace of this past year’s Richmond Spiders NIT Tournament team, has been released from the Richmond basketball program. Nelson-Ododa graduated from Norcross High School in 2011 after a dominant state tournament performance that brought Norcross a state championship.

Nelson-Ododa was the state of Georgia’s best big man in the 2011 recruiting class. Whether there is any mutual interest between Nelson-Ododa and the Bulldogs is unknown, but the 6’9” 240 pound big man would be a fine addition to the Bulldog 2016 front line.

Mark Fox’s 2015 recruiting class is already his finest at Georgia. If it gets any better Georgia basketball fans will party like its 1981.

Regarding 2016 basketball recruiting, Georgia appears to out of the running for Lithonia point guard Alterique Gilbert. Evan Daniels of reports Gilbert has cut his list of considered schools to five. UConn, Illinois, Louisville, Syracuse and Texas.
