Florida added another piece to its 2019 class with the commitment of senior guard Alex Klatsky. A member of the Team Rio travel program, Klatsky’s pledge comes following his official visit to the SEC program this past weekend.

A 6-foot-3 guard from New Jersey, Klatsky discussed his feelings about Florida.

"Coach Mike White and his staff have done a tremendous job there, and they feel that I can help their program out a great deal," he said. "I can't wait to get onto campus next year and suit up for a program as prestigious as Florida."

Klatsky is known for his shooting skills in the backcourt. He brings good size to the perimeter along with a solid know-how in spot-up situations off of the ball.

Running with the Team Rio travel program for the past three years, Klatsky becomes the second member of the Gators’ 2019 class this fall. He spent an official visit on the program this past weekend, alongside good friend and travel teammate Scottie Lewis, a five-star prospect that will take an official visit to Kentucky this weekend.

Klatsky and five-star guard Tre Mann make up Florida’s class as the fall approaches. Beyond Scottie Lewis, whom the Gators have as good of a chance as anyone, the Gators sit in a strong spot to finish the year off with a nationally acclaimed class. CJ Walker and Omar Payne are two other players that Florida values greatly, and the Gators remain in each of their final lists.
