On Saturday night, in different states, two people felt relieved. Jamie Dixon had to have been excited that Mike Young (Pittsburgh/St. Benedict’s) picked Pittsburgh over Florida. Down in the Sunshine State, power forward Schuyler Rimmer (Orlando, Fla./Boone) was a lot like Dixon.

Rimmer was nervous and went through a period of not knowing if the Gators would have room for him. Chris Walker’s commitment put his dreams in jeopardy. A commitment by Young to Florida would have been disastrous from his perspective.

“I felt so relieved,” Rimmer said. “I kind of had almost a relapse when Mike Young was down to two. I told myself that if he doesn’t choose Florida, I’m going to do it. I didn’t want to go through this again.”
