In a matter of a few hours, the Georgia men's basketball team went from zero commitments to filling its class.
And just as importantly, both spots went to big men.
Center Fred Iduwe, a 6-foot-11 prospect originally from Nigeria, committed to Georgia on Saturday night, a source confirmed. Rivals.com was first to report the commitment.
Iduwe is listed as a two-star prospect by Verbalcommits.com, but he has only been playing basketball for a few years. He also had a scholarship offer from Minnesota, among other schools.
Never miss a local story.
The commitment came a short time after another big man, Yante Maten, committed to Georgia. The Bulldogs had two scholarships open for the 2014 class, and had a need for big men. So Saturday's news was big for the program, which is coming off a 20-14 season and should start next season with a legitimate chance to make the NCAA tournament.
The sudden recruiting haul came three days after Georgia announced a two-year contract extension for head coach Mark Fox, who is now signed for the next four seasons.
