Stephon Blair to Central Florida

The Orlando Sentinel reported on Tuesday that power forward Stephon Blair (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./Dillard H.S.) gave Central Florida a verbal commitment for 2012.

Blair held offers from Georgia Southern, South Florida, DePaul and Wyoming.

"They saw a need for his size," Dillard coach Darryl Burrows told the paper. "The school has tremendous facilities and a tremendous coaching staff. They're putting together a pretty good program up there."

Blair joins a five-man recruiting class for the Knights, including guards DeVon Walker (Winter Haven, Fla./Winter Haven H.S.), Matt Williams (Orlando, Fla./Jones H.S.) and Taylor Barnette (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Christian) along with center Dylan Karell (Miami, Fla./Dr. Krop H.S.).
