Lady Dawgs Sign Three


Florida prospects Samantha Glodis and Sydnei McCaskill along with Halle Washington from Louisiana have inked letters-of-intent to play basketball for the Georgia Lady Dawgs.

Glodis, a 6-3, forward from Dwyer High School in West Palm Beach, 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, 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."

Halle Washington, a 6-3, forward from Bossier City, Louisiana, is rated as the nation's No. 30 overall prospect and No. 10 forward by ESPN's Hoopgurlz.

"Halle is obviously very well thought of on the national level and rightfully so," Landers said. "She a tremendous competitor…a warrior. She has a complete skill set, is eager to develop and fits very well into our style of play."

Washington was named second-team all-state by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association for Class 5A as a junior after averaging 14.9 points, 9.3 rebounds 2.6 blocks and 2.2 steals per game for Parkway High School. As a sophomore, Washington was tabbed honorable mention all-state and first-team All-Metro by the Shreveport Times.

"I told everyone that was there for the signing that what makes her such a special ballplayer is that Halle realizes she has a God-given ability and she works hard every single day to make the most of that," Parkway coach Aaron Megee said. "She's a hard worker who was blessed with skill and to be really tall. Halle competes every day to be the best she can be. That's what separates her from the other 6-2 kids that are out there."
