Billy Donovan and Urban Meyer pulling in the recruits

GAINESVILLE -- Plenty of recruiting news to report now that I'm back in town.

1. Former Rutgers guard Mike Rosario is headed to the University of Florida. Rosario visited Gainesville this week and signed his transfer papers on Sunday. He plans to enroll in June but won't be eligible to play in a game until the 2011-2012 season. Rosario averaged over 16 points per game for Rutgers as a sophomore. He'll be a redshirt junior for the 2011 season. Rosario scored 14 points in a loss to Florida this season.

2. Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan picked up his third commitment for the 2010 class this weekend after a visit from 6-7 forward Will Yeguete of Melbourne Florida Air. Yeguete joins 6-5 forward Casey Prather of Jackson, Tenn., and 6-8 forward Patric Young of Jacksonville as members of the Gators' 2010 recruiting class.

3. Florida football coach Urban Meyer picked up a commitment from 2011 quarterback Jeff Driskel of Orlando Hagerty High on Monday. A 6-3, 225-pound quarterback, Driskel is a mobile quarterback with a strong arm who will likely be ranked one of the Southeast's top high-school passers this fall. Meyer now has four commitments for the class of 2011.

Former Gator Joakim Noah scored 25 points and had 13 rebounds in the Bulls' 112-102 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

On Sunday, Noah told reporters that "Cleveland sucks," referring to the lack of a downtown attractions. Guess you can only go to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame so many times. Noah was booed handsomely on Monday night for his comment.

Noah made even more headlines on Sunday when he called Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett a dirty player. Noah was asked about Garnett's role in the altercation between the Celtics and Heat during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
