    Five star stud! This helps immensely softening a potential huge void left by an early entry Kasey Hill. If Hill returns (possible with how loaded next years draft is) we will be absolutely loaded at guard! Welcome to the Gator Nation Brandone!! You are gonna ball it up and cut down lots of nets with hard work! Pumped up!

    You know we have a paid member area for basketball that typically has info too where we don't have to rely on UK fans.

    I think he ends up being a 5 star kid, but unless I'm wrong he's 4 right now. Could be wrong though.

    Huge get! We don't pull many 6'5 shooting guards! Dave Telep of ESPN says he reminds him of Greivis Vasquez who was a 4 yr player at Maryland (2nd all time in UM scoring) & a current starter on New Orleans.

    Hill, Frazier, Chiozza, & Francis will be fun (& young) in 2014

    Billy Donovan is awesome. This was a great snag, and I can't wait to see Brandone in Orange and Blue!!

    Wow. Didn't know he was blowing up like this in the ratings. Went from nowhere to borderline 5* on all the services, and Florida commit! Probably a good thing we got him early.

    2014 class is looking sick. Still gotta close the deal on some bigs though.

    And we are even happier that you've joined the family. Welcome. Now just work hard on the court, keep those grades up, and prepare to set the country on fire in 2014!

    And, to be honest, given his performances on the travel circuit there is nothing borderline five-star about him. I remember when all the services rated Calathes as a four-star shooting guard as he first started getting attention. Sort of the same thing here. Francis doesn't have a "position," but he does just about everything well. Reminds me so much of Brandon Roy: smooth multidimensional wing who can defend, pass, create for himself, and shoot at all three levels. Not a big scorer by any stretch, mind you, but a stat sheet filler.

    And I wouldn't worry about bigs. We have two who might commit on the spot (Price-Martin, Abu) and another we are closing on fast (Black). Unfortunately, unless we have a surprise in our hat, we aren't going to get that elusive elite post player we want, but that has more to do with the class as a whole than us.

    This class needs a big guy to vacuum in rebounds and have a presence there.

    Are you saying 6-7 195 Norris is THAT guy?
