Athletic swing-man Casey Prather committed to Florida on Wednesday, according to Scout.com.
The 6-foot-5, 189-pound prospect, rated as high as 55th nationally in the Class of 2010 according to some recruiting services, is considered an athletic defender in the mold of former Gator swing-man Corey Brewer. Like Brewer, Prather is a Tennessee native, hailing from Jackson, Tenn.
Prather joins power forward Patric Young as the second member of UF’s 2010 class. Florida coach Billy Donovan also visited point guard Brandon Knight, the top overall prospect in the Class of 2010, earlier this month. Knight, a Fort Lauderdale-area native, has received a scholarship offer from the Gators.
