    From the ESPN.com article about the commitment:

    Reminds me of the relentless recruiting Coach Donovan did to land the likes of Mike Miller.

    I do think we take one more at some time. Don't see everyone coming back.
    Stone might leave with good year it will be 5 years.
    I hope Ballard stays but he could get passed up.

    It's not so much ignorance but arrogance is more like it.
    Kentucky fan are arrogant regarding basketball as Alabama fans are to football.
    We call them, "The Gods Of Arrogancy."
    But it's true. I guess if I was a life-long Kentucky fan.... I would be fairly arrogant too.
    Truth be told, I much rather enjoy being a Florida Fan! Very balanced athletic program, (tops in the SEC).... beautiful campus, saturated with beautiful sanity-clad wemin!

    Well if Nebhard sticks that would be awesome, great teams need a solid 7 or 8 to win titles. 2 Good points would be invaluable!

    This is amazing stuff. Such a terrific class from White. I am loving every bit of it.

    We are going to be very deep. I haven't posted my depth charts for a while now, but maybe I will do one.

    I suspect there will be. Love his athleticism and length. What are our chances with him?

    This is totally unfair but just speculating. With 13 scholarship guys on this year's roster White will not be able to keep everyone happy. Even if he has a 10 man rotation this season (which we haven't seen since Billy's 2000 team) it will leave a few guys out of the mix. My guess is the odd man/men out of power rotation (Bassett/Gak) and 2/3 rotation (Stone, Johnson, Johnson, Ballard) might see the writing on the wall, especially with the incoming 2019 class. Heck, even Okauru could be tempted to look elsewhere if he doesn't see an uptick in minutes this year.

    It's just impossible these days to keep 13 healthy scholarship kids happy (and that's why it's been years since we've had 13 healthy, eligible players). At least one transfer is inevitable and it might come early in the season once the pecking order is established. Kids wanna play. That's understandable and one or two will move on to greener pastures.

    So, right now, it looks like Lewis to replace Hudson, Mann to replace Allen or Nembhard, and Payne to replace Hayes.

    This likely won't reflect any real drop off anywhere.

    Gator recruiting is ranked #4 by 247, just a RCH behind UK.

    When is signing day?

    They sound like Gator fans when we lose a recruit.

    Sometimes, but I rarely, if ever, see Florida saying it about a 5* top 25 recruit. This guy could easily be top 10. He has NBA written all over him and they think he is now a 4 year player because he doesn't go to Kentucky. They take it to the HNL.

    Yep, that lineup looks incredible, but 3 freshmen starters? The talent should make us exciting, but also perhaps too young to win it all. I'm actually not sure that THIS year might not be our best shot - with 3 seniors and some extra depth in the front-court (if Stokes is the real deal and Hayes as a senior).

    Of course I think there will be other guys strongly in the mix, depending on who steps up this year, depending on if Nembhard sticks around, etc.

    True 3 freshman would make it tough to win it all. That's why I did not predict NC just good team.
    Would need Nembhard to come back then we can win it all.
    This years team I think needs Stone to play to his potential, to reach theirs.
