I gotta tell you, this is one of the weirder Georgia recruiting stories I’ve seen lately. The Dawgs just got a commitment out of Matt Landers, a lanky receiver out of Florida. That’s not the weird part. This is.
Landers is the son of the former UGA basketball player Tony Cole. Cole had some very bright moments on the hardwood during his three seasons in Athens.
“He said when he was there playing basketball he had a fun time going to school on that campus,” Landers said. “He said I will love it there.”
Landers has thought about wearing No. 1 or No. 21 at UGA. That would be his father’s old number from the hardwood.
“I’ve thought about that,” Landers said. “That would be cool.”
Please tell me there was more than one Georgia basketball player named Tony Cole. Because if not, that means Landers is the son of this Tony Cole and I’m hardpressed to remember any bright moments on the hardwood for him. (I also can’t imagine that Tony Cole telling his son he’d love it at Georgia.)
Then again, I don’t remember that Tony Cole being around for more than one season. Anybody know the answer to this?
