An update on MiKyle McIntosh as well as my thoughts on other options for the Gators
The latest news and analysis of UF basketball recruiting (by Drew Laing)
I like McIntosh. I think he could be another Casey Prather type for us. I'm hoping we don't close the door on him just yet.
Good stuff thx Drew
Cray if no other names staff eyeing as we absolutely need bodies in 2014 and mckintosh seems like he could fill a prather like role in 2014 and beyond
Got to believe there are transfers staff has a read on from AAU coaches etc given lose scottie, young, prather , yeguette at a minimum after 2013
Kinda disappointed UF couldn't land another big in this class. Really hoping to land at least one transfer, hopefully two.
Thanks Drew. I have always said it would not suprise me if UF got involved with a kid who gets out of a LOI when all these coaching changing start happening.
I'm hoping we haven't been able to see McIntosh because we are too busy with tourney prep. Can't bland them.
One thing you didn't mention Drew I think could be an option for us is kids getting let out of their LOI due to a coach firing/leaving. Were we in on any kids that committed to a school with a potential coach firing?
As I said anything can change in recruiting, but the coach's mood towards UF was much less optimistic than in the past. Other schools have gone in and visited and seemed more serious about their interest.
Iverson if the Memphis coach leaves.
Not that I know of...
They just extended his contract I believe
He just got an extension.
pastner used UCLA opening to get an extension
not much turnover ,,,,minny, ucla and not much else at high majors ...looks like nc state is keeping gotfried
ucla took alford from new mexico -- there isnt anything to steal from a west coast team/recruits of new mexico
as for minny -- they are going to sign a mid major coach that is young/uptempo to replace tubby -- nothing likely to steal there
our hope i think will be transfers and/or 5th yr post grad kids for 2014 & hope that DFS is a 2yr kid and so is K Hill/C Walker ....otherwise we will be gutted in 2014 if scottie/PY/yeguette/prather all graduate and then DFS/CWalker/Hill go pro early
We need big time athletes at UF!!
This is fairly sad posting to read. A great coach like BD is down to hoping for transfers and or someone's retirement to find another player for 2013? Wow...
We are at 12 scholarship players for next year. No biggie if we don't add anyone to the 2013 class. Would have obviously loved Randle as a +1 type, but it wasn't in the cards. McIntosh is an intriguing prospect, but getting another in 2013 would be a luxury not a necessity.
Need to focus on 2014 now. Grayson Allen is the priority. Weak year for big guys so that's where the transfer talk is primarily coming from. Not sure why anyone would think looking to the transfer market is "sad". Macklin and Rosario were both huge for us, the reports from practice on DFS couldn't be better, and no reason to think Harris won't be the kind of elite shot blocker he was at USC. Seems like getting transfers has paid off pretty well for the Gators.

would still like to finish 2013 out with 1 more BIG -- dont mind a raw but supremely athletic 3/4 kid **see M McKintosh type**
and or a JUCO big / transfer kid IMO.....also felt Demetrius Henry was a name we should have taken -- kid from N FLA who bangs in the paint and is great on the boards....really nice 4yr prospect
otherwise yes hoping in 2013 for a kid to get out of his LOI late and/or a foreign kid off the radar maybe
