Athens, GA - Georgia basketball coach Mark Fox ventured southward again for the second signee of his young tenure. Cady Lalanne, a highly-regarded forward from Orlando, Fla., has signed a national letter-of-intent to attend UGA and play for the Bulldogs next season, according to an announcement Wednesday from Fox.
Lalanne, listed at 6-8 and 215 pounds, is currently a senior at Oak Ridge
High School in Orlando Last year he averaged 17.2 points, 14 rebounds and 5.2 blocks per game for the Pioneers.
³Cady is a terrific young kid who has the ability to score inside and
outside,² Fox said. ³One of the things we were looking for was a good
interior offensive player, and I think we were able to find him in Cady. But his versatility on offense is something I really like, too. He was also
very well-coached in high school, so I expect that his transition to college will be a smooth one.²
Lalanne is ranked as the #21 center prospect nationally by the Scout.com online recruiting service. ESPN.com¹s recruiting analysts rate him as the nation¹s #37-best forward prospect among high school seniors.
This is the second time that Fox has signed a Floridian to join the Bulldog
program. Last spring Homestead native Vincent Williams became his first signee.
The early national signing period continues through next Wednesday, Nov. 18.
