Locke commits to the Florida Gators basketball program

The Florida Gators basketball program picked up its second commitment of the week and in as many days on Tuesday night.

Guard Noah Locke (6-2, 160, Owings Mills, MD, McDonogh School) committed to Florida over Michigan, Ohio State, Providence and Xavier on Tuesday night just days after he left his official visit to Florida.

Locke told Zach Hughes that several things were sticking out to him about the Gators in his recruitment before his official visit.

A lot of things stick out to me with Florida,” Locke said. “The coaching staff, playing style, winning program tradition and atmosphere are things that really stand out. I have a great relationship with Coach White and also Coach Nichols. We talk almost every day and they always make it known that I am a priority to them and that I can come in and contribute right away. So I really like that about those guys.”

Locke is expected to be a shooting guard and will be paired up with point guard Andrew Nembhard who committed to the Gators on Monday night.

White has been able to excel on the recruiting trail in regards to getting good guards and now the Gators are focused on getting a forward in this class of 2018.
