On Monday night, Florida’s 2019 class landed its third commitment with the addition of four-star forward Omar Payne.
Payne, a 6-foot-9 forward/center prospect out of Montverde Academy, verbally committed to UF coach Mike White and the Gators.
100% Committed! Meet me at the swamp! #GoGators 🐊🐊

Ranked the seventh overall prospect from the state of Florida, Payne committed to Florida over offers from Florida State, Ohio State, Louisville and Texas.
Payne’s commitment not only gives White and co. a valuable in-state prospect, but it also provides Florida with a recruiting victory over the Seminoles.
