Augusta Recruiting with AugBball’s Chad Cook

Chad Cook (@AugBball) does it again folks.

The Augusta Guru has started a Recruiting Show on his website I was lucky enough to join the conversation at the 14:09 mark and touch on Bruce Pearl and Auburn’s recent dominance of the GHSA market and whether or not Georgia fans should be concerned about Mark Fox letting top talent slip out of UGA’s grasp.

Please read and watch Chad’s complete video which covers some of the top boys and girls talent in the Augusta area with experts Greg Williams (@PQSports) and Will Avery (@WillAvery5).

The rise of TJ Massenburg

Earlier this week I joined’s Chad Cook to discuss the upside of Shiloh’s TJ Massenburg. The 6-foot-9 rising senior started his career in Augusta before moving to Gwinnett County where he posted 11 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks per game as a junior. Over the offseason Massenburg continued to raise his stock as an elite rim protector with the Southern Stampede.

Take a listen and please head over to for Chad’s complete analysis of Massenburg along with a 1-on-1 interview with the burgeoning big man.

A brief history of Savannah basketball

While we are in the dog days of summer waiting for Fall leagues to kick back off the 2016 preseason, take a minute to read this excellent piece on basketball in Savannah.

My friend Travis Jaudon (@jaudonsports) took months to piece together how basketball has grown and helped shape the city of Savannah. From Larry “Gator” Rivers to rising Jenkins senior Trevion Lamar, south Georgia has had a proud history of hoops.

Please follow Travis on Twitter for high school coverage with @savannahnow this upcoming season.
