Franz Beard’s Basketball Confidential
With the commitment of Ray Shipman, Florida's recruiting board clears up somewhat. At a minimum, the Gators will sign three --- Erving Walker, Shipman and one big, likely Kenny Kadji (6-10, 250). However, with the uncertainty of Brandon Powell and the possibility of some form of attrition, the expectation is that Florida goes for four in the recruiting class of 2008.
Shipman addresses the need of an athletic, versatile wing that can play both wings, run the baseline or play the point for limited minutes. His basketball IQ is off the charts, too, so it gives the Gators another smart, coachable player. I know the Florida coaches were just blown away with his camp performance and they felt why keep shopping for wings when you’ve got everything you need right here in the state?
