Tennessee and Auburn may have lost their point guards to the NBA Draft, but Florida’s is coming back. Andrew Nembhard just announced he’s withdrawing his name from the draft to return to Florida for his sophomore season.

Nembhard averaged 8.0 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.9 rebounds while starting all 36 games as a freshman. Having him back will be a big boost for the Gators, who also return Keyontae Johnson and Noah Locke and add five-star recruit Scottie Lewis and two other top 50 prospects in Tre Mann and Omar Payne.

    I just don’t get what is in these kids heads. If you are not that good in college, you’re not going to hardly if at all in the NBA.

      Tell that to Richards…Averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds {at almost 7 feet tall} in 2 seasons with UK yet he tested the draft. If we bash others we should also say the same thing about our guys. You do say these kids so maybe you are lumping in the 50 or more that had no business even considering the draft.

      Many want to be drafted, but know they won’t. I think most just want to play pro ball, and with so many options out there it makes sense to do it while you can. I mean it ain’t such a bad life to be like say Gerald Fitch….he’s played in Spain, Turkey, China, Argentina, etc for the last 10 years….making great money, seeing the world….not a bad life to never played in the NBA. And then there are a few guys like Darius Miller who do that time overseas…,mature, see the world, and then make it on an NBA roster.

      Then you have a few like even Skal…never that good, but based on potential alone still cashes a fat check in the NBA without even having to perform night in and night out as the last man on the bench.
