Florida Gators men’s basketball head coach Mike White met with the media Tuesday afternoon. Perhaps the most interesting nugget was that Florida junior center John Egbunu would “test the NBA waters.”
Egbunu tore his ACL in Florida’s blowout win against Auburn on February 14. His recovery is scheduled to be 10-12 months.
Egbunu averaged 7.8 points and a team leading 6.6 rebounds this year.
Egbunu originally transferred to Florida from South Florida.
White also responded to reports of Devin Robinson jumping to the NBA by saying he’d be “surprised if Robinson returns” for his senior season.
Robinson averaged 11.1 points and 6.1 rebounds for the Gators.
If Robinson and Egbunu decide to come back after flirting with the NBA, Florida will likely be a top-10 preseason team next season.
