    Macklin was a terrific player for the Gators in his senior season.

    Sulaimon's potential availability is intriguing as well.

    Not sure I buy that Alex's decision will affect Tomas'. Tomas is c/o 2017, Alex would graduate/run out of eligibility in 2016. I'd speculate it has the same amount of bearing as Erik's attendance at UF will have.

    Wouldn't he be able to play in the spring semester of '15 if he transferred before the end of the year?

    The word I hear on Alex is that his shooting may not be as good as Eric's but he is a better defender and a bit stronger.

    Which is significant. As a parent of four current college students, I can say that it is important to the family when a child has a good experience in a situation, and doubly important when two children have such an experience.

    Not bad as a junior, either - especially the second half of the season.

    He still has to sit out a transfer year, in which he can practice; and then he'd have 1.5 years to play.
