Florida picked up its fourth commitment in the Class of 2015 Monday night when Keith Stone pledged to the Gators.
Stone is a 6-foot-7 three-star small forward from Deerfield Beach (FL) Zion Lutheran High who visited Florida this past weekend.
He also considered VCU, Alabama, Virginia Tech and South Carolina.
“Thank you to all the coaches that have recruited me but I will be attending the University of Florida. #Gator Nation,” Stone said on Twitter.
He joins shooting guard KeVaughn Allen, power forward Noah Dickerson and power forward Kevarrius Hayes in Billy Donovan’s 2015 haul.
“I had a great visit to St. John’s,” the 6-foot-3 Briscoe told SNY.tv. “The coaching staff and I have a good connection and they understand what I’m looking for in a college and a program. Of course, I also like that it’s close to home and I love the city.”
“The St. John’s visit went well,” a source close to the 6-foot-9 Diallo told SNY.tv. “The kid enjoyed the moment.”
The 6-4 Sampson called the visit “good.” To read more of this story, click here

“Some of them [at Kentucky] will want to play more because they were All-Americans in high school, the best players on their team, so obviously they’re going to [want to] play more but I think it’s going to work,” Parker said Monday at shootaround before the Bucks played the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
“It worked out for them last year with all that talent.” To read more of this story, click here
