With the Summer B semester starting last Monday, the Florida Gators are officially putting together their 2016-17 basketball roster by listing the new players that will join the team this season.
Though the actual roster has not yet been updated, uniform numbers for the new players — and others that switched jerseys — have been announced by the program.
2 – Eric Hester (Oldsmar, FL), guard
12 – Gorjok Gak (Bradenton, FL), center
21 – Dontay Bassett (Oldsmar, FL), forward
3 – Jalen Hudson (Akron, OH), redshirt junior guard (ineligible for 2017)
24 – Canyon Barry (Colorado Springs, CO), redshirt senior guard
1 – Devin Robinson, senior forward (switching from 3)
5 – KeVaugn Allen, sophomore guard (switching from 4)
23 – Justin Leon, senior forward (switching from 24)
25 – Keith Stone, redshirt freshman guard (switching from 23)
Redshirt senior F Alex Murphy was not listed by Florida among the team’s uniform numbers. Murphy (who wore 5, now belonging to Allen) was expected to try and receive a rare sixth year of eligibility.
Senior walk-on G Zach Hodskins (who wore 12, now belonging to Gak) has left the team seeking additional playing time, while redshirt sophomore Jhonny Victor is also departing to focus full time on track & field, a UF spokesman confirmed to OnlyGators.com.
