Bearden senior Ques Glover committed Monday to play basketball at the University of Florida next year.
The point guard announced his decision on Twitter. Glover was named MVP of the Class AAA state tournament in March, as he led the Bulldogs to their first ever state title.
“From day one (on the job) I just felt like he was a hard worker; I felt like he was going to be successful in his career,” Bearden Coach Jeremy Parrott said. “I can’t say that I ever expected him to grow and become as strong, as fast, and elite as he has become, but I can say that I knew that good things were in store for him.
“I always felt like he had that ability and could play at that level and to see it finally happen makes me happy for both him and his family.”
Glover has had a successful senior season earning over 20 offers as well as being a Mr. Basketball finalist for Class AAA.
“I am truly excited to be a Gator; it is such a blessing,” Glover said. “Being able to play in the SEC is something I have dreamed about since I was a kid, and it has really all been a dream come true.”
Glover is one of two players from Bearden High School to commit to play at an SEC school, joining Drew Pember who signed with Tennessee in the fall.
