One week after being granted his release to transfer, Florida forward DeVon Walker announced on Monday that he would return to Gainesville to play his sophomore season.

Florida is such a great place, and the more I thought about it, I just realized this is where I want to be,” DeVon Walker said. “The coaching staff has helped me get better on and off the court over the past year and I really enjoy being around my teammates, so I’m excited to refocus on my future here in Gainesville.”

Walker averaged just 4.0 minutes per game last season and got on the court mostly during blowout games to run out the clock during his freshman season. He shot 4-for-22 from the field and committed 10 fouls in 99 total minutes on the court.

His return gives the Gators more depth at the small forward/power forward position. He joins Dorian Finney-Smith, Casey Prather, Will Yeguete and Chris Walker as players that could play the positions.

“We always encourage guys to do what they feel is best for their future, and we’re glad that DeVon will be continuing with us here at Florida,” head coach Billy Donovan said.
