    This should be useful when thinking about our team now and in future years. This is in order of class, not by who may or will start. Italics are players that are committed but not on campus.

    PG: Wilbekin (2014), Hill (2017), Chiozza (2018)
    SG: Frazier (2016), Carter (2016)*, Graham (2017)*, Francis (2018), Hodskins (2018)**
    SF: Prather (2014), J. Kurtz (2015)***, Finney-Smith (2016), D. Walker (2016), D. Robinson (2018)
    PF: Yeguete (2014), C. Walker (2017), A. Murphy (2016)****, Hayes (2019), Mooney (2020)
    C: Young (2014), Harris (2015)*****

    * - taking medical redshirt for this season.
    ** - will begin as a preferred walk on.
    *** - walk on.
    **** - will be eligible to play beginning December 2014.
    ***** - suspended for remainder of season.

    Hill and Walker could be one and dones, so they could be 2014s as well. This is the year to go far in the tourney, as experienced depth will not be there next year.

    Almost nothing will be there next year if both Walker and Hill leave. It will be much like rooting for Kentucky, almost a completely different team each year.

    Not fair as we will be losing three SENIORS in Young, Yeguette and Wilbekin

    I don't see Hill leaving after 1 year. He may be very talented, but he doesn't have the build of a one-and-done PG.

    Good point Carolina, four seniors actually, I simply meant similar to Kentucky having a completely new team like in 2007 when the top 6 players left. I doubt that both Hill and Walker will leave, but Wilbekin, Young, Yuguette and Prather are four guys who will be tough to replace.

    should attract a lot of the top recruits in the coming year(s) - there'll likely be plenty of openings/opportunities to play!

    Actually, one would expect this to be true for the 2014 class, and especially in the frontcourt, with 3 seniors, and Prather having played a lot of 4. To me it is really surprising giving Billy D's historic success in producing NBA big men that more of those offered don't become Gators.

    Perhaps other schools offer $125,000 per year jobs to more players' mothers than Gator supporters do. Otherwise, it makes little sense. Of course, trying to make sense of 16-18 year old males' decisions is literally futility personified.

    That is why so far UF has been able to gain commitments from:

    PG: Chiozza where UF has as big a need next year as the front court.
    SG: Francis who measured 6'5" tall in camps this year and if he grows another inch could be a SF.

    So the issue becomes bigs as you said. And the jury is out on that for 2014.

    Not expecting any bigs until 2015. The elite players aren't looking our way this cycle. Maybe we'll take a four year guy, otherwise, we should start looking ahead to the next class.

    Speaking of 2015, I just saw that Mickey Mitchell had committed to OSU last month. That sucks. I thought we had a decent chance. We should have gone after his brother for football. I was afraid he would follow Mike to Columbus. Both are freakish athletes.

    You can update Carter now Gotham, though I guess it is not 100% sure he plays this year.

    I have added Devin Robinson as a small forward, but he could also be a great stretch four in our system. Will be interesting to see.

    I was of the same opinion a couple of months ago, but not today. Based on what I'm hearing, we'd better enjoy his services this season as this could very well & most likely will be his 1st & last.

    HIll stays I think, but Walker is a one and done I think. He is already projected around the top 15 picks without playing a game. I doubt he stays more than one year honestly. Hill probably needs to grow some before entering the NBA. Walker is an athletic freak and many NBA teams will take the shot at him because his upside is insane. Bigs seem a major issue next year, hopefully Harris will be on Billy's good side next year cause we need him. Will probably run something like
    Hill
    Frazier
    Robinson
    Finney
    Harris

    Would still be a very good team with depth in Graham, Carter, Walker, and the other two rookies. We will take a step back, but if Harris and Hill return and are on the team, we will still be pretty good. Our guards and SF positions are loaded.

    If Walker is truly a one-and-done, why did he go to the trouble of trying to get into UF, and try to mesh with a team full of seniors, when he could have showcased himself for a full season at a school with lower academic requirements. I think there is a chance he may stay a full season

    This is my thinking, as well. Depending on how he performs during the 2nd half of this season, he may very well fall just outside the draft lottery projections and decide to stay another year, which would be enormous for us.

    Let's hope Alex Murphy & Mourning's son ink with UF, because without Harris, the 5 & 4 look THIN and small for the 2014-2015 season.

    Or he could have went overseas and made money for 1 year and showed off his skills.
