ATHENS - As the Georgia men's basketball team hits the stretch run for this season, it has its eye on next season as well.
Norense Odiase, a 6-foot-8 prospect originally from Nigeria, was visiting Georgia on Monday, per his Twitter account. Odiase currently attends a Florida prep school, Elev8 Sports Institute, after finishing his high school career at North Crowley (Tex.) high school.
Odiase is not highly-recruited, his previous offers reportedly at much smaller schools, such as Old Dominion. But he's a big man with a wide body (listed anywhere from 240-260 pounds), which is exactly what Georgia needs.
Texas Tech is reportedly also interested in Odiase, according to Verbalcommits.com.
Never miss a local story.
Georgia is set to lose just one player after this season, forward-center Donte' Williams, a starter. It has no commitments yet for that one remaining open scholarship. The team made a run during the fall signing period at highly-rated in-state players, such as Tift County's Jakeenan Grant, who instead chose Missouri.
