Florida Air Academy guard chooses Florida



Will Yeguete, a 6-foot-7 forward at Florida Air Academy, on Monday signed a letter of intent to play with Florida next season. 

Yeguete, who averaged 18 points and more than 12 rebounds per game, chose the Gators over Georgia Tech.

He is the second player to commit to the Gators in the past 24 hours. On Sunday, Rutgers transfer guard Mike Rosario signed with the Gators, although he'll have to sit out the 2010-11 season per NCAA transfer rules.

Yeguete, who grew up in France, is expected to play both the small and power forward positions.

"It's a dream come true,'' he said.
