Florida men's basketball signs two five-star recruits

Florida's 2013 men's basketball class now officially includes two of the nation's best high school players.

Guard Kasey Hill (6-foot-1), of Eustis, and 6-foot-10 F Chris Walker of Bonifay, each submitted their signed National Letters of Intent today to attend Florida.

Both are five-star recruits and among the top 10 players for the 2013 class by ESPN, Rivals and Scout. They will be eligible to join the Gators as freshmen for the 2013-14 season.

They join a long list of highly-touted, in-state players who have chosen to play for the Gators in recent years. Florida's current roster includes six native Floridians: Kenny Boynton (Pompano Beach), Scottie Wilbekin (Gainesville), Patric Young (Jacksonville), Michael Frazier II (Tampa), Dillon Graham (Orlando) and DeVon Walker (Winter Haven).

Hill is a former teammate of Frazier II at Montverde.
