Michigan transfer Jon Horford will finish his college basketball career at Florida, according to a report from ESPN‘s Jeff Goodman.

Horford averaged 13.6 minutes per game in his junior season at Michigan and the 6-foot-10 forward averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds per game on 56 percent shooting. The younger brother of former Gator Al Horford, Jon will finish his career under Billy Donovan as well.

The addition of Horford, who is eligible next season since he is a graduate transfer, will give Florida more depth on the interior where they return McDonald’s All-American Chris Walker for a full season along with sophomore Dorian Finney-Smith and Duke transfer Alex Murphy, the younger brother of former Gator Erik Murphy.

Donovan should have another really good team that can compete in the SEC and on the national landscape as Horford has been an important contributor on some very good Michigan teams.

    From the beautiful liberated pastures of Ann Arbor to the shabby, dilapidated confines of Gainesville. Man that’s gotta stink

    Ah, parrothead, have you ever been to Gainesville? How about the campus of UF? I hope your comment is meant to be a joke. Both Gainesville and UF are very nice.

    I was hoping you’d ask. Why yes, yes I have. Im currently residing in jax, and my statement stands. Now have you ever been to Ann Arbor?

      I have been to both. I dont know how it would stink to go to a place with beautiful weather and women. Gainesville has Ann Arbor crushed in both. Add playing for the best coach in the country and a very solid team I think it was a great decision. Go Gators!

    Yeah, adding Horford’s 3.8 ppg is sure to put the gators over the top!

    Sorry wolverqueens but it looks like next year is going to be a rough one for you. No more Stauskas, McGary, Robinson and now Horford.
    Sparty owns you

    I’m sure you’ll get so much more playing time at Florida.. You’re delusional kid.. You’ll be just another bench player, just like you were at UM. Cry baby….
