    If this kid is the real deal, Calipari isn't going to let Florida lock him up for four years without trying to get him just to keep him away from the competition. The intangibles he could bring to a team are enormous, e.g., inspiration, knowing you have him for four years and the leadership he can provide.

    There is an excellent by Kevin Brockway in this morning's Lakeland Ledger. I don't know how to do links on my iPhone4 but maybe someone here will be able to do it.

    www.theledger.com/sports

    It mentions that he first got the attention of Coach Pelphrey when the coach was at a game to watch 2014 commitment Brandone Francis. "I was able to score a couple of baskets over him. Then I noticed Coach Pelphrey again in the stands when we played Florida Elite and I was fortunate to have another good game against them."

    His favorite Gator player growing up was Chandler Parsons. He met Chandler after a Gator game against Vandy at the end of the 2011 season when UF clinched the SEC title.
    "I was probably the only fan in the building that went to the Florida side. I told him it was my dream to be a Division 1 player someday. He told me 'It will happen, keep grinding.'"

    It will be great to see Zach wearing the orange and blue. He is 6'2 right now.

    "There's really not much I can't do that anyone else on the court can do."

    Hope we don't lose him to someone else!
    Again, it's a good article.
