    6'5" combo guard who had many offers, including Indiana and UL. Picked you guys over Louisville. Must be a smart kid.

    He's from the DR also. Rivals has him as the 25th ranked player in the 2014 class and Scout has him at 45.

    FYI...Louisville just got a commit from their top shooting guard target. I think that helped with us getting Francis.

    Yeah, it is no coincidence that Francis commits to us right after Lyle committed to Louisville. Still great news!

    Fitting that two guys from Kentucky (one a UK fan, and the other a Gator) break UF basketball recruiting news on a Gator site. And the 6th guy to comment, me, was born in Louisville but moved to Florida as child. You guys sure do follow basketball 12 months a year up there, don't you.

    I still think we were in pretty good shape even if Lyles hadn't committed, but Balado was sure going to make it tough on us. This just made us sweat less.

    Riley Norris Leron Black Malik Price-Martin all on deck. Need to start putting pressure on Norris before some other big schools start offering him. He is a SF that can shoot and he doesnt need the ball in his hands which would be prefect for playing with Francis and Chiozza.

    Billy does an amazing job. Two Top 40 players for the back court already. Before Donovan, either one of these guys committing would have had us all floating on air. And this class is just getting started. Thank you, coach.
