On Saturday, word broke that Florida point guard Andrew Nembhard was taking his name out of the NBA Draft and transferring to a different school. This morning, Jeff Borzello is reporting that Nembhard is officially in the transfer portal, and has already heard from Gonzaga, Duke, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Memphis, and Georgetown.

Last season as a sophomore, Nembhard averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game. Yesterday, he posted a goodbye message to Florida fans on Twitter, closing the book on his career as a Gator.

With Nembhard gone, the Gators have three other options at point guard: Tre Mann, who is still testing the NBA Draft waters; Cleveland State transfer Tyree Appleby; and Ques Glover. Leading scorer Keyontae Johnson and Scottie Lewis will also be back after withdrawing their names from the draft back in April.

    Why hasn’t U.K. contacted him

      If we aren’t reaching out, It’s probably an assumption he plans to apply for a waiver on grounds that White gave away his schollie so he had to transfer. We’re set at guard this year with Askew, Mintz, Clarke and Boston.

      He will probably end up at Memphis or Duke. I bet dimes to dollars he ends up at Memphis once Penny gets a hold of him. However would not be surprised if he ends up at Duke either. Keep an eye on Georgetown they may be the dark horse and could pull of a major shocker.

      Mints has to sit this season but UK will also have Dontaie Allen this season. So replace Mintz with Allen. Also UF would never ok someone to transfer to a conference divisional rival.

      I’m not sure what you mean. Mintz is a Grad Transfer and is immediately eligible.

      Mintz is immediately eligible as a grass transfer dude.

      Mintz is immediately eligible. Sarr and Toppin are traditional transfers and have to apply for waivers, though many expect Toppin to just sit out the year so he can work with the staff and be ready next year.

    Probably because we have a boat load of guards
