Bartram Commits To Florida

Bartram Commits To Florida

The Florida Gators and head coach Cameron Newbauer scored their first commitment in the 2019 class with Brylee Bartram’s verbal.  The 5-foot-8 guard from Seffner, Florida, chose the Gators over Alabama, George Washingon, Michigan and others.

“I was blessed with many great opportunities to play at the next level and I owe all of it to God,” Bartram said.  “I chose the University of Florida because I want to be part of something really special.”

“I fell in love with the school, coaching staff, and team,” Bartram added.  “I think I can become the best player I can possibly be there.  I believe in coach Cam and the rest of the staff and I want to play a role in taking the Gators to the top.  I’m excited for the future and I’m ready to wear the orange and blue with pride.”

Bartram gives the Gators a sharpshooter for a system that finished in the top 10 percent for 3-point field goal attempts this past season.  The timing is good with Bartram coming in on the heels of the team’s leading scorer Funda Nakkasoglu, who attempted more than seven threes per game in her first year under Newbauer.

"Bartram put her full arsenal of tools on display for Tampa Thunder #PSBFamily in a matchup against the Nike Lady Gym Rats at #PSBPower48 last July,” Brandon Clay, Publisher, said. “She's the type of player who could potentially be amongst the league leaders in 3-point percentage nationally. In that way, she reminds me of former Gator star Jordan Jones."

Bartram will team with Delicia Washington in the backcourt for a year and with Ariel Johnson and Emanuely de Oliveira for three seasons.
