Florida shooting guard Alonzo Gee from Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens was one of the fastest risers on the AAU circuit this summer after splitting time with the Tallahassee Wildcats and South Florida Heat AAU programs.
As a result Gee, 6-foot-6, 205-pounds, has received scholarship offers from Alabama, Charlotte, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Maryland and Miami with those seven schools making up his list of favorites.
“I like all seven of those schools right now and I’m in the process of trying to learn more about each one,” Gee said. “They are all pretty much even and I hope to take unofficial or officials visits to each one and then narrow my list down from there.”
The last two weekends have seen Gee take unofficial visits to Alabama and Miami and he returned with good things to say about each.
“Alabama was really nice. I liked everything about it. The town is different from what I’m used to but I had a really good time. I just went up there to check things out and it went really well.
“The visit went alright. I really like the environment at Miami. The coaches are nice and they seem to know what they are doing. They have an opportunity to play early. Also, it helps that it isn’t that far from home.”
Gee, who is rated the nation’s No. 38 prospect by Rivals.com, said that he is looking for a certain criteria when selecting a college.
“I’m looking for a school where I feel really comfortable with the players and the students,” Gee said. “It doesn’t matter to me if I’m close to home as long as it feels like a second home to me.
“I would like to play early but more importantly I want to play on a competitive team that gives me a chance to contribute. My relationship with the coaching staff has to be solid. I have to be able to trust them on and off the court.
“I’ll make my decision when I find the right fit for me.”
Last season Gee averaged 12 points and seven rebounds per contest.
