    Figured we should start a recruiting thread since it seems to be catching fire!!!!

    Two of our top targets, Scottie Lewis a SF and top 10 overall recruit and Omar Payne PF/C a top 40 overall recruit are visiting this weekend. About the biggest recruiting weekend we can have!!!!

    Lewis' teammate Bryan Antoine committed to Villanova this week. He was suppose to visit Florida officially in a couple of weeks. Doubt that visit still takes place. Villanova was a bit of a surprise commitment, so not sure what that means in Lewis' recruitment. Florida and UK have seemed the front runners for a bit now. Hopefully we get his official verbal this weekend, continuing a flaming hot recruiting for Mike White and Florida!!!!!!!

      Lewis will get to see the football team beat down the kitties. Nova will be tough to compete with, but I have hope. Landing these guys would be awesome and hope they sign right away this fall if they commit.

          Big inside men have the higher FG%, and we need that. Outside shooters waste more shots. UF always has plenty of guys under 6'5" to heave it up from outside. To turn the corner towards elite, White has to start pulling in some big-talls, like Duke, N.C., Pitt, even FSU & Miami have close to 7 foot big bodies. UCF's Tako Fall is 7'6" a senior that's only been playing basketball 5 years? He lives in Tavares, FL, very near UCF and his adopted 2nd parents.
          Tako's brother should be 13-14 and he's probably gonna be a 7+ footer. He lives in Cincinnati. White needs connections with those European giants and South African giants who have been groomed for basketball. We can't go on getting beat up inside.

          If Gak could only become athletically coordinated?

                Alex’s mom and dad met in the UF MBA program, so he has grown up as a Gator. His dad also runs the AAU team that Alex and Scottie Lewis are on, so Lewis probably knows just about everything there is to know about Gator basketball too. Doesn’t mean we will get him, but it won’t hurt.

                    I wonder if we're trying to get lewis and walker or just one of em. I think we only have room for 3 so if we get both , we won't have room for a big. At least not until the spring signing. I'd definitely take both and go for a big once another spot opens up.

                    Pretty for certain we will take 4 this class. We will lose 1 or 2 by other means it seems following this season

                    At this time we would take Lewis and CJ in a heartbeat

                    Far from it. We have been relentless with both. Lewis is suppose to visit UK this weekend...then we will know more. Some believe he could commit to us soon after

                    Yeah I was hoping he would commit to UF and cancel that visit, but alas....
