Florida signee ATH D’Anfernee McGriff enrolls in prep school, plans to join Gators in spring

Despite decommitting from Auburn and signing with the Florida Gators on National Signing Day, four-star 2015 athlete D’Anfernee McGriff (Tallahassee, FL) knew it would be difficult to get academically cleared to enroll in school and that he may have to attend another institution before joining the top-tier collegiate program.

McGriff seemingly gave it his best shot, but his grades and test scores fell short of the threshold to enroll in Florida. As such, he was faced with an option – go to a junior college for two years and eventually reopen his recruitment or attend a preparatory school for a semester and attempt to join the Gators in the spring.

Tuesday night, McGriff announced his decision on Twitter, and it was good news for UF.

6 BITS: Mike Miller traded, Casey Prather headed overseas, Tim Tebow throws, McElwain praised

1 » Former Florida Gators guard/forward Mike Miller, who signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers to play with superstar LeBron James and hopefully win another title before retiring, has been traded by the franchise to the Portland Trailblazers. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, who first reported the Miller trade, he will likely be bought out by Portland and become a free agent, though league rules prevent him from resigning with Cleveland for a full season.

With roster spots at a premium right now, Miller would likely have to wait to join a new team; he could also decide to retire. Miller, 35, is owed $2.85 million in the final year of his contract but will likely accept a buyout for a much lower amount. He has already received $400,000 as a trade kicker, a clause that was built into his Cavaliers contract.
