Georgia men’s basketball team signs two guards

The Georgia men’s basketball team picked up a pair of guards on Wednesday, the first day of the November signing period.

J.J. Frazier and Juwan Parker signed national letters of intent and will be eligible to join the team in time for next season, Georgia men’s coach Mark Fox announced on Wednesday.

Frazier is a 5-foot-9, 160-pound point guard from Ludowici. He averaged 26.2 points, 4.9 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 3.1 steals a game for Faith Baptist Christian last season. Rivals.com rates Frazier as a three-star recruit.

“J.J. is a quick and dynamic playmaking point guard,” Fox said in a release. “He has the ability to create plays for himself and other people. I really like his natural instincts for the game.”

Parker is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Tulsa, Okla. Parker is going to Booker T. Washington High School which produced former Oklahoma All-American Wayman Tisdale. Parker averaged 20.5 points and 9.4 rebounds a game as a junior last season at Washington. Parker’s older brother, Jason Parker, went to Tulsa, where he was coached but current Georgia assistant Kwanza Johnson. Rivals.com rates Parker as a three-star recruit.

“Juwon is a very complete shooting guard,” Fox said. “His ability to shoot and score will be welcome on the wing. I feel good about the versatility he will bring the position for us.”
