Gainesville prep star is latest Gator basketball signee
Scottie Wilbekin, the 6-foot-2 star point guard from The Rock School in Gainesville will forego his senior year, graduate early, and sign a scholarship with the Gators. Wilbekin is the sixth member of Billy Donovan's 2010 class.
He will officially sign at his high school at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday. He has been awaiting word from the NCAA Clearinghouse and finalizing his SAT and high school core requirements for admission to UF.
"At first I was hesitant to give up my senior year,'' said Wilbekin, who averaged 17 points per game. "They reassured me and I'm looking forward to being a Gator next year."
