Florida men's basketball associate head coach Larry Shyatt watched prospect Brandon Knight win a state title.
LAKELAND -- In our ongoing effort to provide a wide variety of news on the Gators, the editorial board of Gator Clause, Inc. took a road trip to Lakeland on Friday for the FHSAA Class 3A boys' basketball state championship game. The reason behind the trip to The Lakeland Center? Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest hoops star Brandon Knight, of course.

Knight, a 6-3 junior point guard, is at the top of the Gators' recruiting wish list for 2010. Among the many college coaches in attendance on Friday was UF associate head coach Larry Shyatt. Pine Crest won its second state title in a row on Friday. CLICK ME for a photo gallery. Knight had a game-high 27 points. He was sloppy at times on Friday but there is no doubting his talent. He runs the floor with confidence and quickness. His arms are long and his court vision is considerable.
