Andrew Nembhard, a 4-star point guard from Montverde Academy, has committed to Florida.
Nembhard chose the Gators over Gonzaga, Ohio State, and USC. He announced his commitment via Twitter:

Nembhard is ranked as the No. 46 overall player in ESPN’s Top 100 for the 2018 recruiting class.
The 6-4 Canada native took his official visit to Gainesville this past weekend and is Florida’s first commitment in the class.
This is a huge get for White and company.
Nembhard is exactly the type of point guard that you need to win in college basketball.
He’s a great passer than can also use his size to get into the paint and score, which is something that the Gators will definitely use to their advantage once Nembhard gets on campus.
With Chris Chiozza entering his senior season, Florida had to find a player that could come in and make an impact right away once the veteran point guard exits the program.
This is without question an excellent start to the 2018 class for White and his staff.
And just in case anyone thought White couldn’t bring big-time talent to Florida, Nembhard’s commitment should provide evidence to the contrary.
