    All three are 4 stars. Some services have Devin Robinson as a 5 start fwiw. Great job by Billy Donovan and crew.

    I hope Chris Walker stays another year, and that Harris can get on the team again. Otherwise we'll be a tiny team.

    Pretty sure the roster for next year isn't close to being set. Late signees, transfers, and players released from LOI due to coaching changes are all on the board right now.

    Here is UF's press release:



    There is a ton of good news in the press release. UF shoots relatively straight with size data. UF:

    1. lists Chiozza at 5'11". This is great news. He is essentially the same height at Green.

    2. lists Francis at 6'5" and 205 lbs. That is about what he has been listed recently. Still a little growth and could be a 3 at UF.

    3. lists Robinson at 180 lbs. He is the 6'8" we expected. Still being 11 lbs heavier than the 169 lbs he reportedly weighed in at this summer means he is bulking up after his growth spurt. He could come in at UF at 190 lbs or so and build up next summer and fall to 200 lbs or close to it.

    All in all lots of good news in the UF press release about this class. Here is a link to the press release:

    Personally, I would take the measurements with a grain of salt because they aren't on campus yet being measured by us. Those are either-self reported by the kids or drawn from a recruiting site.

    Regardless, Francis is plenty big enough to play the three. He is better than Beal or Frazier, both of which played the three as freshmen, he is about the same size as the freshman Prather (though Prather I think was much longer), and he is far thicker and mare athletic than the similarly tall Calathes.

    Welcome to the gator family! Looking forward to seeing these guys play for us.


    "better" should be "bigger" I presume

    Three very good prospects for Billy Donovan's style of basketball.

    Congratulations to the young men for making an excellent choice to help them develop into very valuable people.
