Florida basketball’s freshman class has been cut in half over the last week. Five days after point guard Braxton Ogbueze announced that he would transfer from the program, freshmen forward DeVon Walker also announced his intentions to depart, leaving the freshman class with just Michael Frazier and Dillon Graham.

“DeVon has a bright future, and we hope for the best for him wherever he chooses to go,” Florida head coach Billy Donovan said.

Walker played in 25 games last season, coming off the bench in all of them. He played a total of 99 minutes with most of them coming in mop up duty as the Gators wanted to rest the starters in the final minutes of a blow out game.

When he was in the game, Walker went 4-for-22 from the field and 1-for-7 from behind the three-point line.

“I’ve grown a lot this year, and I’m grateful to Coach Donovan, the staff and my teammates at Florida for everything,” DeVon Walker said.

The Gators still have plenty of depth at the forward position. Walker was best suited for the small forward, where Casey Prather returns for his senior year and Dorian Finney-Smith will be eligible to play as a redshirt sophomore this season.
