With former Florida signee Noah Dickerson asking to be released from his National Letter of Intent and KeVaughn Allen undecided in the aftermath of a head coaching change, new head coach Michael White has some work to do on the recruiting front. He was on the receiving end of some good news Wednesday evening, as it was reported by multiple outlets that small forward Keith Stone will remain committed to Florida.
Stone joins forward Kevarrius Hayes as signees who have committed to playing for White, and hanging onto those additions is an important development for Florida as they begin a new era of basketball.
Hayes and Stone will join a program that has some holes to fill due to the departures of Michael Frazier II, Eli Carter and Chris Walker. Guards Chris Chiozza and Kasey Hill return, as will forwards Dorian Finney-Smith and Alex Murphy.
The newcomers will have the opportunity to earn minutes under White, who had at least eight players average ten minutes per game in each of his four seasons at Louisiana Tech.
