ATHENS, Ga. -- Florida prospects Samantha Glodis and Sydnei McCaskill have inked letters-of-intent to play basketball for the Georgia Lady Bulldogs head coach Andy Landers announced on Wednesday, the first day of the NCAA's early signing period.
Glodis, a 6-3, forward from Dwyer High School in West Palm Beach, Fla., is rated as the nation's No. 18 post prospect by ESPN's Hoopgurlz. As a sophomore, Glodis averaged 7.2 points and 12.3 rebounds and helped Dwyer's Panthers to a 22-7 record. As a junior, she averaged a double-double of 10.2 points and 10.4 rebounds as Dwyer finished 23-5.
"Samantha has outstanding potential as a power player," Landers said. "She has a prototypical body for the position, runs well and has the ability to score from both inside and out. She is someone who I think has a bright future at Georgia
McCaskill, a 5-7, guard from Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Fla., is rated as the nation's No. 86 overall prospect by ESPN's Hoopgurlz. She has led Dr. Phillips to consecutive Florida state tiles. The Panthers captured the 6A title with a 30-2 record during McCaskill's sophomore year and won the 8A crown in 2011 while finishing 29-3. McCaskill was named all-state by the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches as both a sophomore and a junior.
"Syd is a crafty point guard with excellent transitions skills and instincts," Landers said. "She's no stranger to success as Dr. Phillips is one of the most outstanding high school basketball programs in Florida. Syd has been a big part of their recent success and we're excited she's coming to Georgia."
