For the past few months Jason Jitoboh has had his ups and has had his downs. Faced an ankle injury that kept him out for months and it came at a time where he was landing offers on a regular basis.
Jitoboh was landing offers from schools such as Louisville, Illinois, Florida, Wake Forest, and many others.
But, he’s found his new home.
Jitoboh tells Stockrisers that he has committed to Mike White and the Florida Gators.
“Florida was actually my first offer and they have been recruiting me hard and I have built a relationship with the coaching staff,” Jitoboh said.
“Me and Coach Mike have a great relationship because he saw something in me that I didn’t see and I think he can help develop me to the player I know I can be.”
As I previously said, Jitoboh faced a setback when he injured his ankle towards the end of the summer. Many schools went another direction, but some schools stayed, including Florida.
“After my injury a lot of schools looked the other way but Florida still kept checking on me and still believed in me.”
Jitoboh will join Scottie Lewis, Tre Mann, Omar Payne, and Alex Klatzky.
“The 2019 class coming in is very good. A class with two McDonald’s all American and another top-100 player [Payne], we can be very very good.”
