Sunday was a fairly normal day for 6-foot-6 shooting guard Sean Durugordon.
Durugordon had a virtual visit planned with Georgia head coach Tom Crean, one of the newest programs involved in his recruitment, but that normal day ended up turning into much more after Durugordon received a scholarship offer from Georgia during his virtual visit.
“[Georgia head coach Tom Crean] actually started off the meeting with offering me the scholarship,” Durugordon said. “I wasn’t really surprised because I’ve worked for these type of days my whole life but I was very grateful to receive that. It’s seriously an honor especially from a legendary coach like coach Crean.”
And the virtual visit?
A lot better than he could have anticipated. Not only did Georgia make him feel like a priority, but coach Crean was very detailed about how they’d utilize his talents.
“It was great,” he said. “Coach Crean really went into depth on their player development and culture there at Georgia and how they can use me.”
Georgia along with Missouri, St. John’s, Clemson, Creighton, UConn, DePaul, Xavier, Temple, East Carolina, Old Dominion, Vermont, Iona, Hofstra, South Florida, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech are also recruiting him.
His list could potentially be a lot longer than that as well, as many other coaches have been in contact with his prep school coach at Putnam Science (CT).
Coming into this summer, Durugordon had a lot of coaches following him but very few offered. In the month of May alone, Durugordon added offers from Penn State, VCU and now Georgia.
He credits his latest recruiting success to, “just continuing to work everyday, grind and leaving the rest to God.”
As his recruitment is heating up, I expect the month of June to be just as good for the 6-foot-6 shooting guard with a 7-foot wingspan. His recruitment remains wide open and he’s continuing to learn as much as he can about the programs recruiting him.
“I’m kind of just going through the process slowly,” he said. “Seeing what schools are serious about me at this stage.”
