Huge news!!! Next year should be fantastic
I heard the kid loves playing college ball, and UF. I thought he might return. This is fantastic news. I hope he has a monster season.
Obviously for the kid's sake, I hope he has concluded there is upside to his returning to Gainesville, as opposed to being the consolation prize in a crowded draft. Makes him more motivated to perform well on the court for UF and keeps him on track for a Florida degree.
Next season is looking better and better.
I hope he AND Allen can find a better rhythm working together this year.
makes the point guard's job a lot easier
Is this our depth chart now?
I'll be shocked if Nembhard doesn't start at the point guard position for most games next year.
Yeah baby....we're back!!!
I knew Jalen was a smart man.
Our 2018-19 team will be awesome!!
Gators' leading scorer returns for senior season
Going to be very interesting. They actually cross-trained Allen and Hudson for some limited point duties, so we will have lots of versatility across the one through three. Nembhard, Locke, and Keyontae Johnson can all play immediately. They are college ready kids. Ballard is going to be in a dogfight for minutes. I could also see Keyontae Johnson sliding over to the fuor if we have problems there. Chase Johnson and Isaiah Stokes are essentially newcomers because of their injuries, though I think we envision Stokes at the five ultimately. Some real logjams at both the three and the five right now.
This is amazing. His offensive creation will be awesome, that is an area we definitely would have lacked if he decided to leave. I think next year's draft is going to be really weak and I hope that the weak draft mixed in with a monster season for Hudson this year should help him get drafted comfortably, maybe even in the later stages of the first round.
The only 2 I see as "locks" for starters are Hayes and Hudson. I wouldn't be surprised by any changes at the other positions, even Allen.
I'd think Chase is a bit ahead of Stokes, since he did get quite a few healthy practices in.
I worry (for them) about Bassett and Ballard's PT with the crowds gathered at their positions (when healthy).
Good news! Jalen was wise not to sign with an agent. We all seen it too many times, that these players get star-struck, or get bad advice, sign with an agent, then don't get drafted, only to sign with a European team. Good luck to Jalen, and hope he has a huge season!! Go Gators!
Eh. I have never been a real fan in hoops. Not may do it, and for good reason: it is just so hard to get a rhythm when you are on and off the court in such short spurts. Many hoops coaches now like to keep open scholarships (no more than 10-11 at a time) to prevent overcrowding and subsequent attrition, though a few injuries can really shelve your season in that event. Ironically, our best teams under Donovan tended to be those with only 10-11 guys on scholarship and a rotation of 7-9 (2005-06, 2006-07, 2013-14).
But the nice thing is you can absorb injuries more easily and you have options in case someone isn't ready to go. Most importantly, though you have four returning starters--three seniors and one junior--to go with bunch of kids with playing experience. Replacing Chiozza was always going to be tough, but a veteran roster with go-to scorers helps a great deal.
Good news and smart decision in my opinion.
Lots of other players returning. ESPN seems higher on their impact than Hudson.
Wiley to withdraw from draft, return to Auburn
Maryland's Fernando to return next season
Dorn pulls out of draft, returning to NC State
Hurricanes junior Huell pulls out of NBA draft
KSU's Brown returning; Weber gets extension
Hells to the yes!
