“Kentavious has a terrific future ahead of him,” Fox said.  “We’re really excited about his ability to score from the perimeter.  It’s easy to see by his ability and his skills that he’s been very well-coached.”

Mark Fox and the Dawgs have now received letters of intent from all three of their commitments. Nick Marshall will also play basketball for the Bulldogs in 2011, but he will sign a football scholarship in February.
