Florida basketball picks up commitment from four-star forward

Florida basketball coach Mike White landed his initially commitment in the 2022 recruiting course on Wednesday, and it was a large one particular. 4-star Montverde Academy power ahead Malik Reneau, the No. 43 player in the nation and No. 6 power ahead according to the 247Sports Composite, announced his commitment on Twitter.

Reneau selected the Gators over presents from the likes of Florida Condition, Arkansas and Indiana. Here’s what 247Sports recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins had to say in his scouting breakdown of Reneau.

Reneau is a southpaw four guy with a strong construct, terrific fingers, and an equally outstanding truly feel for the recreation. He is a staff-oriented player who compliments these all around him with his exercise on the glass, inside scoring, and passing from the superior to very low posts. He is a first rate vertical athlete who can make the occasional wow participate in but for the most part Reneau is all enterprise and fundementals on the hardwood. With his terrific basketball IQ and capability to do regardless of what is necessary for his staff, Reneau tracks perfectly as a superior significant all-reason asset.

While the guard participate in at UF under White has normally been strong, from Kasey Hill to Chris Chiozza to Tre Mann, the staff has struggled to locate similarly impactful players in the frontcourt. When heart Colin Castleton transferred in from Michigan this year, it revitalized the team’s participate in in the paint, the two offensively and defensively.

As a robust rebounder with very good inside scoring capability, Reneau is a quite good pickup for the Gators, and White will hope he’s the initially cog in a much better course than very last year’s, which ranked just 78th in the country after only signing one particular ranked recruit in Kowacie Reeves.
