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.
