So that being said, who have you guys got lined up in Gainesville? I didn't even know we were competing with you guys for Booker. I'm slackin this season.
Well...kind of sort of competing with us for Booker. Brandone Francis (another 5* SG) was higher on our board and it was UF vs Louisville for him, so when Louisville got their 2nd highly ranked SG of their class Brandone decided to go ahead and commit to UF.
We have 2 commits so far, 4* PG Chris Chiozza from Memphis who's been killing it over the summer which is causing his stock to rise(only 5'10" though so he's not going to get the recognition the one and doners will get), and 5* SG Brandone Francis from Jacksonville who is very versatile (can play all positions on the Wing which is perfect for Billy).
We were in very good shape for Alabama SF Riley Norris but since we are extremely deep at that spot we would have only taken one if we were in love and Riley is good, but I think the Tide pushed harder for him towards the end of his recruitment and he chose them, and also 5* PF Leron Black but he eliminated us. Both of these guys played with Chiozza's AAU team.
We're struggling with Big recruiting this year. Even though we don't necessarily need one, it could be good to get another high profile big since we lose 3 at the minimum to graduation.
