Devin Robinson, a 6-foot-8, 175-pound forward from Christchurch (Va.) School, announced for Florida on Wednesday.
Robinson also considered Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Indiana..
UConn had been on his list, but Robinson cancelled his recent visit there.
Florida currently has two pledges in 2014 in point guard Chris Chiozza and shooting guard Brandone Francis.
“Devin has tremendous upside; his best basketball is ahead of him,” his coach, Ben Thompson, told SNY.tv. “He has the ability to shoot and score the ball. He impacts the game on both ends with versatility, is an underrated passer, rebounds well for his position and is a team player.”
Said New York recruiting expert Tom Konchalski of Robinson: ”He’s terrific. He just needs to get stronger, that’s all he needs to do.
“He’s a very good all-court player. He’s a running forward who changes ends, gets out on the break. An athletic system is the best for him, obviously. He just needs to get stronger.”
