Florida landed its second verbal commitment in the Class of 2019 Tuesday, as 6-foot-4 combo guard Alex Klatsky announced that he will be a Gator. Klatsky, who joins four-star point guard Tre Mann in Florida’s 2019 class to date, took his official visit to Florida this past weekend.

Klatsky, known for his perimeter shooting ability, attends The Ranney School in New Jersey and played his grassroots basketball on the Under Armour Association circuit for Team Rio National. With KeVaughn Allen and Jalen Hudson both entering their final season of eligibility, adding another option at the off-guard position helps Florida moving forward.

Two of Klatsky’s close friends (and teammates for both Ranney and Team Rio) are five-star prospects Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, with the latter having committed to Villanova earlier this summer.

As for Lewis, he’s a 6-foot-5 wing who took his official visit to Florida at the same time as Klatsky. Lewis has official visits scheduled for Kentucky (September 14) and St. John’s (October 5), with Duke, Harvard, Stanford and Villanova also on the list of seven schools he released in June.
