Incoming High School Signees

5* Asa Newell

Newell is one of the top recruits in the entire class of 2024. The brother of current Georgia walk-on Jaden Newell, Asa comes to Athens from national powerhouse Montverde Academy in Florida. Newell ranks as the No. 12 ranked overall player in the class and is the No. 2 ranked Power Forward.

On a loaded HS team featuring the likes of Cooper Flagg, Derik Queen, and Liam McNeeley, Newell was still one of their better players. He averaged 12.1 PPG and 6.5 RPG on 69% shooting as Montverde went 31-0 on the season (while playing a national schedule).

Georgia is also one of the teams in the running for 4* Forward Khani Rooths, who recently de-committed from Michigan. Rooths ranks as the No. 31 overall player in the class and as the No. 6 ranked Power Forward. He is the second highest ranked uncommitted player in the class.

Landing Rooths to pair with Newell in this class would make this one of Georgia's better recruiting classes in recent memory, even at just two players. However, even if it is just Newell, landing a five-star is a massive win for Georgia.

Again, we might know the answer to some of these questions and decisions fairly quickly (with the transfer portal already open), while others might take some time. Whatever the time-frame, this will be a crucial offseason for Mike White and the Georgia Bulldogs men's basketball program.
