    Nike Team Florida got their usual boost from athletic three-star power forward Kevarrius Hayes. The 6-foot-8 power player hails from Live Oak (Fla.) and is already committed to coach Billy Donovan and the Florida Gators in their 2015 class. Donovan watched on Saturday, as Hayes led his team defensively and finished with high flying dunks as they advanced to the national title game on Sunday. A long-bodied forward who can also play some center, Hayes shows excellent promise as a transition big man who can bring energy to the game.

    You are welcome.

    Florida wants Daniel Giddens out of Georgia, a highly rated center for the 15 class.

    In Orlando recently, Giddens played on the E1T1 team with other Gator targets in 2015 Antonio Blakeney and Alex Owens. I believe both Blakeney and Owens are in the espn top 60 for 2015. Owens had a monster weekend in Orlando at the AAU supershowcase (watched him on tv). Owens is built like a tank and at times dominated a lot of the 14 kids. Blakeney is a smooth shooter.

    Giddens had this to say about his experience in Orlando:
    "The vibe is good here I really like it," Giddens said. "It's a nice change. I feel a little freer playing on this team, there are a lot of Division-One prospects playing on this team like Antonio Blakeney and Alex Owens (also UF targets in the 2015 class). There are a lot of good players so it's nice to be here."

    Getting Giddens, Blakeney and Owens to go along with Hayes for the 2015 class would be monstrous. It helps that Blakeney and Owens are from Florida. Just getting Hayes, Owens and Blakeney would make an excellent class.

    Would be really happy to get Giddens since he went to my high school.

    Junior transfers Antonio Blakeney, Alex Owens elevate Oak Ridge basketball

    Two of Florida's top four rising junior basketball players have been cleared to play for Oak Ridge (Orlando, Fla.) in the 2013-14 campaign, according to Buddy Collings of the Orlando Sentinel.

    Antonio Blakeney and Alex Owens both transferred to Oak Ridge and enrolled in the spring, but their eligibility was just cleared by the governing FHSAA. Joining 6-foot-4 rising senior Marquel Willis, who averaged 19.7 points last season, they should make the Pioneers an instant Florida — if not national — power.

    Blakeney, a 6-4 shooting guard, averaged 24.8 points and 7.6 rebounds last season for Cardinal Mooney (Sarasota, Fla.). He is the No. 3-ranked junior in Florida. Owens, ranked No. 4, is a powerful 6-8, 230-pounder who played last year for Oldsmar Christian (Fla.).

    Owens and Blakeney both received scholarship offers in April from the University of Florida. Blakeney has also been offered by Kansas State among others. Owens has additional offers from such colleges as Miami, Cincinnati and Georgia.

    A recent power in Class 7A, Oak Ridge will move up to 8A this coming season.

    Three best teams in Orlando this season are Oak Ridge, Evans & Wekiva. Watched an ok University HS team almost whip OR at the UCF Team camp in June & AB & Owens were both on the team along with Marquel Willis.
    I believe Wekiva won the large class HS division at the UF camp in June. Windermere Prep almost beat OR as well!

    I went to the UCF team camp and got dunked on by Amare Stoudemire. I also got dunked on by Cornerlius Ingram, but I'd say getting dunked on by Amare was one of the highlights of my career.

    Never ever got dunked on when I played HS ball - not even close. However, if you dunked the ball, it was a tech foul - so maybe that was the reason! Also no three pt. line nor shot clock!! Just say'n!

    I think it just means you're really, really old. Even Old School would call you old.
