Possible 2018-19 Starting Six (Class they are in next year)
G:Cam Wells (Sophomore)
G:Greg Frazier (Freshman)
G:Dallas Houston (Junior)
F:Quinn Gee (Freshman)
C:DeShawn Hand (Freshman)
Goalie:T.J. Stoudemire (Senior)
Who is lost:All who are leaving (Ricardo Frederick and Victor Zeller) are players being replaced by underrated freshman.Frederick and Zeller like the Freshmen that are coming into replace them were also underrated in college,nothing special but both averaged about ten goals and eight boards for their careers in Gainseville.Losing one of the best goalies in the country (T.J. Stoudemire) will be bad next year but that is next year not this year.
Who is added:They had the top two recruits in the nation (Jaylen Moore and Carter Cook) locked up until the signing period and that’s when Florida’s class faltered.They also lost lost out on long time commit and 5-Star Shooting Guard Trayvion Jackson (3SG,14OV).This is about who is added,though,and they kept 5-Star Miami Point Guard Greg Frazier (5PG,18OV), Quinn Gee (32SF,107OV) out of Cleveland,Ohio, and IMG Academy’s DeShawn Hand (14C,111OV).
What it means for next season:A young team that will have to gel together as the season goes on.They have many proven good players like Guard Cam Wells and Goalie T.J. Stoudemire.This team can make the NCAA Tournament if they gel together early next season.
NIT Status:Yes.They are a number one seed.(The NIT bracket will be released tonight:)Cam Wells should play well and lead them to their second NIT Tournament Championship in two years (One because of NCAA Violations).
Trending:Up.Their recruiting class could have been much better but they still have a good,young team.
