Allen sticking with Florida

Mike White and Florida got a significant win off the court, as Kevaughn Allen will stick with the Gators.

New Florida coach Mike White received huge news on Monday.

Kevaughn Allen, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Little Rock (Ark.) North, informed White that he will stick with the Gators, despite the coaching change, a source informed Scout.

Allen originally committed and signed with Billy Donovan and Florida. Reports came out shortly after the coaching change that Allen planned to look around and see what his options were.

A four-star recruit, Allen is ranked No. 67 overall and No. 19 at the shooting guard position in the 2015 recruiting class.

With the news that Allen will honor his original pledge, White and his staff were able to keep three of the four original Gator commitment. Keith Stone and Kevarrius Hayes, both four star prospects, have publicly said they plan to stick with Florida.
