Nembhard, who has two years of eligibility remaining, could opt to return to school, but he had to make a decision before the 11:59 PM deadline.
The Aurora, Canada native averaged 11.2 points and 5.6 assists as a sophomore at UF.
Nembhard is the first Gator to declare after freshman Scottie Lewis and sophomore Keyontae Johnson chose to return to school.
Nembhard projects as a potential late second round pick, but many have speculated that he will seek playing overseas where his style of play is more suited.
The Gators have several options behind Nembhard including former five-star prospect Tre Mann and Ques Glover.
UPDATE: Nembhard had signed with agent Jaafar Choufani, per Jeff Goodman. Signing with Choufani allows Nembhard the potential of returning to UF, as he is one of 23 agents the NCAA has approved for such circumstances.
