JUCO SF Cameron Forte commits to Georgia

Cameron Forte

Cameron Forte has committed to UGA.

Cameron Forte, a JUCO small forward, has committed to the Georgia Bulldogs. He is the fourth recruit for Mark Fox’s 2012-13 class.

“I just committed to the University of Georgia on a full ride scholarship to play basketball!,” Forte announced on Twitter today (@Smoothiewhatup).

Forte (6-7, 210) currently attends Howard Junior College in Big Spring, Texas and has three years of eligibility remaining. In his first season there as a redshirt freshman, he averaged 22.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game.

“I just talked to Coach Fox. He was pretty excited,” Forte told UGASports.com. “I just felt like it was the best. I felt most comfortable with their coaching staff and the players. It’s a growing program.”

Forte signed with Texas Tech and former head coach Billy Gillespie out of high school. After one season with the Red Raiders and not getting into a game, he transferred to Northern Arizona.

However, Forte was unable to obtain a waiver to play immediately at NAU. So he then transferred to Howard J.C.

Forte selected the Georgia Bulldogs over offers from Auburn, Colorado State, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Washington State, Long Beach State, and others.

Georgia’s 2012-13 recruiting class is now complete. J.J. Frazier and Juwan Parker signed with UGA last November, and Kenny Paul Geno inked with the Dawgs earlier this week.

The late signing period began on Wednesday and runs through May 15.

    We need something good to happen to/for the basketball team next year. It seems we struggle to bring in some high caliber players with KCP being an exception to the rule. I like Coach Fox but feel his time, I fear, is running short. Making the NCAA tournament with a win or two would be nice.

      I agree with you. If we don’t make the tournament next year, it could be Fox’s last year unless we are close AND sign a great 2013-14 class.

      Recruiting has been our downfall.
