    Between UF, Miami and Texas. A lot of UF buzz. Not sure when he is supposed to announce. Top 75 player. 6-5 shooting guard.

    For reference, here's the 247 summary - if, like me, you're not really that familiar with most of the basketball prospects:

    Has solid size for a wing while possessing explosive athleticism. Not a fluid outside shooter, but shoots it well enough to keep defense honest. Average ball handler. Not known as a distributor. Rebounds his position well. Excels as a versatile on -the-ball defender. Known as an energy and defensive-oriented player.

    Size. Athleticism. Energy. Defense.

    That’s White’s kinda guy.

    We'll ignore the "average ball handler," "not a fluid outside shooter" and "not known as a distributor" descriptions for the sake of this exercise. ;)

    That assessment is accurate to what I've seen from Lane. One thing I like about his limitations--he's not on NBA draft boards and is going to stick around Gainesville. Will be great to see how he develops.

    I mean, uhh... if he commits...

    Lol!

    Truth is, White has and will overlook those shortcomings in favor of the other attributes. That was my point.

    I think Speedy Smith... White’s all time favorite player, and eventual All American honorable mention ... missed his first 20 threes! He wasn’t “fluid”! :)
    But he had the other stuff.

    Yeah, sorta. Though i think white is a better coach, and will prove far better at developing those type players.

    I agree. I doubt those write ups have been updated since he did really well this summer on the circuits.

    Looks like a great pickup, especially if he's a 6'6-6'7 wing...

    I like the get already. Long, athletic, tough, defensive-oriented player who can guard multiple positions. White values defense over offense and knows that willing defenders are what make a championship team.
