Florida, five commits
The beat goes on for Billy Donovan as he has worked relentlessly at Florida since the day he arrived. He has developed players through rigorous individual instruction programs and coached them to two national championships. Anyone who knows Donovan knows he will not slow down. He will work even harder to replace Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Corey Brewer and Taurean Green and get a third ring for the Gators.
Donovan had a banner recruiting year in 2007, getting teammates Nick Calathes and Chandler Parsons, both from Winter Park, Fla., Alex Tyus (Ohio) early and point guard Jai Lucas (son of former NBA great John Lucas).
