Power forward Schuyler Rimmer (Orlando, Fla/Boone) has committed to Florida. Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop was the first on Twitter with the news, but Gator Country's Drew Laing was the first to post with a quote.

It's the school I've wanted to go to," Rimmer said. "So having the opportunity to do so was too good to pass up. Florida is a good school and they are a program that is accustom to winning, which is something I want to be a part of."

Rimmer's recruitment blew up after an impressive summer on the AAU circuit. He started the summer with a few offers from smaller schools and now has over 20 offers, including ones from Stanford, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest.

Rimmer impressed the Florida coaches at UF's Gator Team Camp. He left the camp without an offer, however. That offer came July 18. Four days prior, Rimmer gave a top four of Virginia, Vanderbilt, Florida and Stanford.

NBE Basketball Report caught up with Rimmer at the Peach State Summer Showcase.

With many quality academic schools on his list, Rimmer discussed the importance of academics in his decision. "It's gonna be big. Basketball is gonna end at some point. I wanna [get a good] education so I can get a good career."

Rimmer definitely projects as a three- or four-year player, which works out nicely considering Chris Walker will most likely be a one-and-done and other frontcourt players graduating or leaving early. Rimmer sees himself playing a similar role to Erik Murphy.

"I would play a similar role to Erik Murphy," he said. "I'd be a pick and pop forward, but I would also post up. I would have to develop a more consistent three-point shot though."

Rimmer joins Kasey Hill and Chris Walker in the Gators' 2013 class. Florida will look to add one more player in this class, likely a small forward, swingman type who can shoot.
