Coach Mike White and the Gators landed their first commitment in the 2021 class Thursday when four-star shooting guard Kowacie Reeves Jr. pledged to the program.

The 6-foot-6 guard out of Macon, Georgia, chose Florida over offers from Texas, Stanford and more. Reeves is ranked the No. 5 combo guard and the No. 67 overall prospect in the 2021 class by 247Sports.

Reeves plans on taking an official visit Oct. 5 to UF.
