Georgia’s basketball team has received a commitment from guard Kenny Gaines from Whitefield Academy in Atlanta.
Gaines, who’s considered the nation’s 22nd-best point guard by ESPN.com, chose Georgia over offers from South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Iowa.
“Really, it was Coach (Mark) Fox that won me over,” Gaines told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “On Monday night, my mom and I were sitting in my room and praying what decision to make, and what schools to really consider and look at. It was like five minutes after we got done praying that Coach Fox gave us a call.
“We felt like that really was a sign from God. We asked Him to show us as fast as he could what schools to pick. After we got that phone call, we really knew that it was Georgia.”
Gaines is the second commitment for Georgia’s class of 2012.
Here’s a closer look at Kenny “MixTape” Gaines.
