This year, Gak has struggled with a dislocated shoulder and has appeared in only 2 games, totaling 11 minutes of play and grabbing 3 rebounds.

The 6 foot 11 inch junior, who was the #289 player and #29 center in the 2016 recruiting class per 247 sports will graduate early this spring and look to be a graduate transfer next year. Over his career, he averaged 2.0 points and 2.1 rebounds for the Gators.

Gak will complete the semester before looking at his options as a graduate transfer.
