Georgia signs forward Houston Kessler

Georgia head coach Mark Fox announced on Wednesday the signing of 6-foot-8 forward Houston Kessler (Fairburn, Ga./Landmark Christian) to a national letter of intent, giving the Bulldogs four incoming recruits next season.

"Houston is a skilled forward," Fox said. "He is a great shooter and rebounder and we are looking forward to having him join our team next year."

Kessler's father Chad (1983-87) and late uncle Alec (1986-90) both suited up for the Bulldogs. The younger Kessler is the career scoring leader at Landmark Christian with 1,600 points.

All four signees for Fox reside in the state of Georgia and include guard Kenny Gaines (Atlanta/Whitefield Academy), forward Brandon Morris (Lithonia, Ga./Miller Grove) and Charles Mann (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton).
