We are still recruiting Keith Stone allegedly.
Another Noah to take us to the promised land?
Just like Harvin, there will never be another Noah.
And if that was a biblical reference, you need to go back to Sunday school.
They kicked me out of Sunday school.
I had to go to college to find salvation.
With a little conditioning, could Noah potentially be a taller version of Jarnell Stokes?
High school kids were just getting trucked underneath the basket against the 6'8" 255 pound Dickerson.
When he comes to UF, Billy could bring Noah along with him in the morning as he did conditioning drill on the track.
Noah looks like he already burned some of the baby fat in the more recent clip by Bradass. Not many players in the SEC will be able to go toe to toe with him in the paint once he completes his transfomation. Maybe Big Pat can show him some secrets on building a superman physique.
I see Allen, Hayes and now Dickerson for the 2019 class
From the thread below, we would only lose Horford unless it is incorrect about Carter (or he doesn't make it back).
Walker in a likely EE and maybe Finney Smith or even Frazier if they both step up a notch.
PG: Hill (2017), Chiozza (2018)
SG: Frazier II (2016), Carter (2016), Graham (2017), Francis (2018), Hodskins (2018)*, K. Allen (2019)
SF: J. Kurtz (2015)*, A. Murphy (2016)**, D. Walker (2017)***, Robinson (2018)
PF: Finney-Smith (2016), Hayes (2019), Dickerson (2019), Mooney (2020)
C: Horford (2015), C. Walker (2017), Egbunu (2018)****
* - walk on.
** - will be eligible to play beginning December 2014.
*** - injured, will not play in 2014-2015 season.
**** - not eligible in 2014-2015 season
Yeah, the numbers do always work out, but I don't know that I've ever seen us more than two over the limit, which is where we will be with this class at the end of the season.
I think you are reading too much into this. Remember that we have Chiozza as a backup. Plus, it's hard for even very talented point guards to leave early.
He's got a very good reverse shot there around the rim...
He travels past the hoop... and then, uses his body to shield himself but uses his right hand to deliver the ball back to the hole! Watch him... he does it repeatedly.
Nice touch from 12-15 feet. Enables him to use those inside moves.
So you are transferring to Oral Roberts.
We may well never win back-to-back national titles like we did in the time of the "'04s", but the program overall has never been this strong. As someone that remembers Neal Walk and then the 25 years of mostly nothing between his time and the Final 4 run of 1994, I continue to shake my head in amazement at what Coach Donovan has done and continues to do.
I agree completely. The thing that sticks out to me is that Donovan has established a "brand," much like Izzo and Boeheim. Sure, he recruits the best kids in the country, and occasionally he lands them, but more often than not he focuses on kids from his neck of the woods who fit into the system and can develop over the long haul.
UF is THE choice for in-state players. FSU and Miami (and all the others) are now "fall back" options in basketball, pretty much like it is with the student body overall. UF is now also THE choice in Georgia, ahead of UGA and GaTech as the program of choice for high school talent. Our recipe for success appears to be to take the top players in-state (assuming they're team-first guys and fit the system), pick up a quality transfer here and there, and pick up the occasional Brad Beal if available. We'll stay at or near the top for the foreseeable future.
I'm not sure if that is really our recipe. We recruit nationally for the most part. Chiozza and DRob are both out of state. We will pass on in state guys if we can get better out of state guys
Looks like a great prospect. Really nice hands. Doesn't play in a rush. Nice form on his shot. May even be able to extend his range to the 3pt line.
We will take Keith Stone if he wants in...big time 6'7-6'8" combo forward with a great stroke out past 3....unless something changes, he is visiting with his whole family this weekend and his HS coach....on an UOV
A sneak peak
Sure, we recruit out of state a little, but we focus on certain areas: in addition to Florida, we hit the Tidewater area, northeast (MA/CT/NYC/NJ), and that central swathe of the Mississippi Valley (Memphis through STL). But you don't see us all over the map the way we were in earlier in Donovan's tenure. Back then, he was concerned with getting the best possible talent to plug into his system; now, I think he is far more restrained and selective when it comes to A) recruiting upper-tier players and B) filling out the roster generally when we miss out on those guys.
The only time I had as much confidence in the b-ball program was probably in 2006, maybe also in 2001-2002 period when the team was coming off with a championship game appearance AND was projected to be stacked with new talent for years to come. Ironically, there were a few years of "letdowns" right after those high points. But I guess that's how life generally works. Hopefully this time it's different.
It's hard not to feel great about where Gator basketball is at right now though, both for this year and future recruiting.
