Wednesday's announcement that Casey Prather (Jackson, Tenn./North Side) is committing to Florida over Michigan gives the Gators one of the elite athletes in the 2010 class.

Prather, a small forward who is the No. 25-ranked senior in the nation, has great athletic ability and excellent size, at 6-foot-6. His strongest suit, to this point, probably is his prowess on the defensive end of the court. On the perimeter, he moves very well laterally and has the fearless mindset required to lock down the opponents' top scoring threat. Because of his athletic ability, he can defend the 1 through 3 spots. He also is a skilled rebounder who can start the break off the glass.

To find out how Prather fits in at Florida, you must be an Insider. Insider
