Take a moment this afternoon and send some get well wishes to former UK Basketball walk-on EJ Floreal, who underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles today. In August, the senior gave up basketball to focus on his track and field career under his father, Coach Edrick Floreal, and despite the injury, he plans to redshirt and run next year.
Surgery tomorrow pray for the kid ðŸ™ðŸ¾

As Floreal’s shown us time and time again, he’s an incredible athlete, and I have no doubt he’ll make a full recovery. Minor setback for a major comeback, right? When you get a chance, send EJ some love @.
