Fourth recruits signs with UGA hoops, which may not be done yet

Nemanja Djurisic is officially on board to the Georgia men's basketball program. The forward from Montenegro sent in his letter-of-intent on Wednesday, the first day of the late signing period.

Djurisic becomes the fourth signed member of the Georgia signing class. He's listed at 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds.

"He's a terrific shooter with good size and a great feel for the game," head coach Mark Fox said in a statement.

(Personal note: I've been to Montenegro, which has a very good national swimming program. If nothing else, you've now learned that. Call it a productive day.)

The Bulldogs have now signed three post-oriented players: Djurisic, John Florveus (a 7-footer from Fort Myers, Fla.) and Tim Dixon (a 6-10 forward from Columbus.)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, a 6-6 guard from Greenville, is the linchpin to the class. He's a McDonald's All-American who is likely to take Travis Leslie's spot in the lineup.

Georgia is also still in the hunt for Kevin Ware, a 6-5 guard from Conyers who originally signed with Tennessee. Ware got his release and is also considering Louisville, UCLA and Central Florida.

The Bulldogs have eight scholarship players returning, after the early departures of Leslie and Trey Thompkins. That leaves them with one open spot remaining, but Connor Nolte and Matt Bucklin could always return to walk-on status.
