Florida didn’t take long to fill at least one of the recently vacated scholarships.
In light of three players opting to transfer from the program, UF landed a commitment from highly regarded forward Jason Jitoboh.

A 6-foot-11, 270-pound prospect, Jitoboh gives Florida’s 2019 class a sizable presence after signing guards Scottie Lewis and Tre Mann alongside power forward Omar Payne.
The three-star prospect out of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is coming off injuries to his foot and ankle, making it likely the Gators will opt to sit Jitoboh for a season as he recovers and develops.
With the addition of Jitoboh, the Gators have just three open scholarships to fill.
