ATHENS — Georgia already had its version of the Fab Four on its way, and now it has a fifth.
Donnell Gresham Jr., a senior point guard at Northeastern University, is joining the Bulldogs for next season as a graduate transfer. He’ll be immediately eligible to play next season.
The 6-foot-2 guard from St. Paul, Minn., played in all 34 games for the Huskies last season, starting 33 of them, and averaged 33.7 minutes per game. He averaged 9.7 points a game and totaled 105 assists (3.2 pg).
The Huskies were 23-11 and won the Colonial Athletic Conference with a 14-4 record. Northeastern’s season ended in the NCAA Tournament with a first-round loss to Kansas. Gresham had 9 points and 8 rebounds in the defeat.
Gresham announced his commitment to the Bulldogs on his Twitter page @_ThatBoyRed along with a picture of him posing in a Georgia uniform with Georgia coach Tom Crean.

The Bulldogs desperately needed to add ball distributor to its heralded 2019 recruiting class. Georgia’s No. 6 ranked group features four Top 100 incoming freshman, led by No. 2-ranked forward Anthony “Antman” Edwards of Atlanta. Also headed to Athens are No. 61-ranked Christian Brown, No. 69-ranked Jaykwon Walton and No. 96-ranked Toumani Camara. All three are considered 6-6 swingmen.
