Evaluating Georgia basketball’s 2024-2025 roster in its early stages

Evaluating Georgia basketball’s 2024-2025 roster in its early stages

The Georgia Bulldogs basketball season is over after falling to Seton Hall in the National Invitational Tournament semifinals. Georgia’s surprising run in the NIT gives Georgia fans some optimism heading into the 2024-2025 season.

Head coach Mike White helped Georgia build a more talented roster for the 2023-2024 season as the Bulldogs went 20-17 overall and 6-12 in SEC play. We do know that a few key players on the Georgia basketball team aren’t expected to return for next season.

Center Russel Tchewa (Georgia’s leading rebounder), guard Noah Thomasson (Georgia’s leading scorer) and guard/forward RJ Sunahara are all graduates and no longer have eligibility. Georgia explored some different line-up options during the NIT with Tchewa and Jabri Abdur-Rahim both suffering injuries and missing some action.

Our list of the Georgia roster does not include incoming transfers, but does factor in Georgia’s one signee. It is very likely that Georgia will be active in the transfer portal this offseason. A few key Bulldogs may transfer away as that’s the name of the game in today’s college basketball environment. Let’s take a look at where the Georgia basketball roster stands after the 2023-2024 season.

Abdur-Rahim was Georgia’s second-leading scorer throughout the 2023-2024 basketball season. Abdur-Rahim has a decision to make. Does he want to return to Georgia? He could elect to transfer or play basketball professionally. Abdur-Rahim averaged 26.0 minutes per game before suffering an ankle injury and missing Georgia’s NIT run.

Georgia guard/forward Mari Jordan did not see the court for the Bulldogs in 2023-2024. Jordan is a former four-star recruit in the class of 2023.
