Mann, a 6-foot-3, 170-pounder from Villages Charter School, is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 23 overall prospect in the 2019 class, giving UF coach Mike White his highest-rated commitment in his four years at Florida.
Mann is the first player to commit to UF’s 2019 class. He grew up in Gainesville as a Gator fan. Mann is a playmaker, but shoots well enough to play off the ball, and could team in the backcourt with Andrew Nembhard if/when Nembhard returns to UF for his sophomore season.
White and his staff are setting up another top class for 2019 after brining in a breakthrough class in 2018, which included his first five-star signee at UF, Andrew Nembhard, plus four-star shooting guard Noah Locke and four-star wing Keyontae Johnson.
