    Michael Okauru, the 6-foot-3 point guard from Brewster (NH) Academy, announced his commitment to Florida on Thursday, following his official visit to Gainesville earlier this week (Dec. 20).

    “It’s a winning culture there and I just felt it was the best fit,” said Okauru. “I will be a point guard playing in an up-tempo┬átype offense,”

    Okauru joins Chase Johnson, Isaiah Stokes, and DeAundrae Ballard as the fourth commit in Florida’s 2017 class.

    Haywood, a 6-4, 180-pound shooting guard joins Christ the King point guard Jose Alvarado as the second commit in Georgia Tech’s 2017 class. He was looking to do visits at Georgia and Kansas before deciding on Georgia Tech.
