2023 recruit Thomas Haugh commits to ‘dream school’ UF


Thomas Haugh (10) goes up strong during the YAIAA basketball game between York High and New Oxford at William Penn Senior High School, January 10, 2020. The Bearcats defeated the Colonials 59-46.

The Florida men’s basketball program landed a verbal commitment for the 2023 recruiting class Wednesday from Thomas Haugh, a power forward from Pennsylvania. 

“Dreams to reality! 110% committed to the University of Florida,” Haugh posted on his Twitter account, along with a UF graphic.

Haugh, who stands 6-foot-9 with a 6-foot-11 wingspan, isn’t exaggerating: he’s had the Gators on top of his list since before he was a Division I prospect. 

Despite growing up in Pennsylvania, Haugh grew up Gators fan, meaning his midweek visit June 26-28 with the program wasn’t his first trip to Gainesville.

Florida was ‘dream school’ for hoops recruit

“I was a huge Gator fan, I was a big Florida fan. It was my dream school. When they called, it was pretty special,” Haugh said. “It was kind of weird, me being a Florida fan, because everyone around me is Penn State, Pitt, all that, but growing up I loved watching Tim Tebow. That was my guy. I guess you can call me a little bandwagon fan, but I watched them and just fell in love with Florida.”
