Florida added a third top national recruit to its 2018 class Friday.
Keyontae Johnson, a four-star small forward prospect from Norfolk, Va., announced on Friday night that he’s signing with the Gators before his game at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy.
The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Johnson chose Florida over Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Texas Tech. Rivals.com ranks Johnson as the 115th best player in the Class of 2018.
“Keyontae is a tremendous athletic wing who can score off the catch or bounce and make plays above the rim,” Oak Hill coach Steve Smith told veteran college basketball/recruiting writer Adam Zagoria. “He’s extremely long for 6-5. He is an excellent defender and really rebounds his position. It’s hard to find a better athlete or competitor than Keyontae.”
Johnson will join five-star point guard Andrew Nembhard and four-star shooting guard Noah Locke as the third incoming freshman in UF’s 2018 class.
