Handlogten averaged 7.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks. He also made 71.1% of his attempts from the floor while averaging more than 25 minutes per game.
The former 3-star prospect was the Sun Belt Conference’s Freshman of the Year and will arrive in Gainesville with three years of eligibility remaining.
Handlogten will be a major part of Golden’s roster overhaul as the team failed to make the NCAA tournament in 2022-23 with a 16-17 overall record.
“We are thrilled that Micah has decided to join our program… We believe he is just starting to scratch the surface in terms of his upside,” commented Golden.
Handlogten committed to Florida over Auburn and NC State, among many other suitors.
