The Florida Gators have pulled themselves out of the recruiting race for Brandon Knight (PG/SG, 6’3″, 2010), the star scorer who is down to a handful of schools. This move by Florida leads us to believe that Florida knows Knight is headed elsewhere, and right now all signs point to the Kentucky Wildcats; however, that still remains to be seen, and with Knight taking his time, anything can happen.
It also means the Gators may be making more time to focus on getting Austin Rivers (PG/SG, 6’4″, 2010) to completely commit to Florida. The recruiting situation with Rivers is odd; he continues to say he’s committed to Florida while also evaluating Duke. That means he’s not committed at all.
