Gators add 2nd commitment for ’18 class


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, 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.



  1. 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.
