Chris Chiozza to Florida; Matt Butler to Rhody

2014 point guard Chris Chiozza is off the board.

The 5-foot-11 point guard from Memphis (Tenn.) White Station picked Florida Tuesday.

“Feels good to be a gator #florida #universityofflorida #chomp,” he Tweeted.

He also considered Ohio State, Memphis, Tennessee, Auburn, UMass and Richmond.

“Florida’s always been one of my top three schools since I was a little kid,” Chiozza told SNY.tv recently in Fort Wayne, IN. “I’ve always loved watching them. I’d alsolove to play with Kasey Hill and Chris Walker, if they’re still there. They’re also recruiting my teammate Leron [Black] so that’s a school where we could play together.”

Chiozza and Black, teammates on the AAU circuit and at Memphis White Station High School, have discussed that possibility, meaning Black might now consider Florida.

The 6-7 Black listed Florida, Illinois, N.C. State, Ohio State and UConn as the other schools coming after him the hardest.

“We haven’t said for sure if we’re going to go to the same school,” Chiozza said. “We’ve said we want to play with each other. If we don’t, we’re still going to be like brothers—we’ve known each other since we were little.”

BUTLER TO RHODY

Matt Butler, a 6-3 shooting guard from Memphis East, signed with Rhode Island and head coach Dan Hurley.

“Matt is a sharp-shooter, no question,” East coach Vernard Watkins told the Providence Journal. “Matt and his mother are real impressed with Coach Hurley and the structure in the program. he was always looking for the right fit. Matt is a good student and a disciplined kid with great character.”

Butler joins E.C. Matthews of Detroit and Hassan Martin of Staten Island in Rhody’s recruiting class.

The Journal reported that Rhody remains involved with Chicago power forward Alex Foster, who visits this week.

FREE THROWS

Texas A&M reportedly got a commitment from 6-10 Dylan Johns of the Houston (TX) Trent International School….Seton Hall point guard Tom Maayan is reportedly back in Israel doing his obligatory military service and may not return to the Pirates.

I always wondered why the jets fans always booed other team's picks in the nfl draft when they were at the draft Radio Music City Hall. Most of the time the jet's picks weren't superior to the other team's picks even if the teams drafted well. They were well about the same level.

Not really , jets always get shafted. There are no guys with a pass rush rating over 76 , its super hard for high rated DL to shed blocks to stop the run.
