    #1. T. Green
    #2 S. Wilbekin
    #3 J. Williams

    Undoubtedly the most debated position and the closest one in all of the polls to date. These top 3 set themselves ahead of the field in the initial poll and in the run off Taureen Green emerged on top, with Scotty and Jason neck and neck for the #2 spot. Scotty edged him out barely, so we are voting for positions 4 & 5.

    * indicates a nominee from the floor, after the original top 5.

    I still have so much trouble deciding where I place Williams in my personal ranking, balancing their accomplishments with the Gators versus the talent they displayed the rest of their career. I think you have him ranked pretty accurately here for sure.

    Chiozza had more effectiveness than any of the others. Jason Williams played for less than a year, so he simply should not be included, although, had he stuck around, he would certainly have been the best. It's really interesting that none of the Gator Top PGs were highly rated out of HS. Teddy Dupay, Brett Nelson and Kasey Hill were likely the most highly rated PGs out of HS.

    Calathes was a 5 star coming out of high school.

    Yup.
    And interestingly, his teammate and buddy Chandler was widely considered to be a throw-in to land calathes.

    If Calathes had played four years and just maintained his Assists per game average he would have ended with 914 Assists. Chiozza, the leader in UF history has 571. Calathes Career PPG at UF is 16.3 while Chiozza, even if you remove his freshman year, is 8.4 ppg. The only thing Chiozza had on Nick was better defense, imo.

    It does make you wonder though, and I do not mean to disparage him, but it does make you wonder why Cheeze could not unseat Kasey as full-time starter?

    I mean, if we're discussing him as one of the best PGs ever to play for the Gators....

    My son and I went down and watched the last game he played for UF and neither of us came away with the impression he really wanted to be there.

    He probably didn't. Those were two poor years he was here with some underperforming NIT teams. Maybe it was his fault, but he was the most talented guy on those teams (before Parsons blossomed later) so I'm sure he was frustrated and was ready to move on. He has had the best professional career of any UF PG outside of Jason Williams.
