Florida added a second commitment to its 2018 men’s basketball class Tuesday.
Noah Locke, a four-star shooting guard from Owings Mills, Md., made a verbal pledge to the Gators on Tuesday. Locke posted the commitment on his Twitter account.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Locke, ranked 63rd in the country by Rivals.com, is considered one of the best pure shooters in the class on 2018. During last spring’s Nike EYBL circuit, Locke made 54 3-pointers while shooting 49.5 percent beyond the arc. Locke visited UF’s campus last weekend.
Locke joints 2018 five-star point guard Andrew Nembhard, who committed to the Gators on Monday. Together, the two could form a future starting backcourt tandem for UF.
Locke chose Florida over Providence, Xavier, Michigan and Ohio State.
As Coach Mac might say about Coach White; ” Obviously, I think coach White is kinda of a cool guy which I think is obviously kind of neat, and is obviously one of the really best young coaches in the country, kind of.”
Well Mac, I agree. Mike has done a great job while representing Gator Nation with integrity, class and a big dose of competitive great. Great hire by Foley for sure.
