Florida Gators sophomore forward Devin Robinson is declaring for the NBA Draft, according to a post on his Instagram from Monday.
However, this isn’t necessarily the end of Robinson’s time in the orange and blue.
New NCAA rules allow players to declare for the draft and participate in the NBA combine to see where they stand, and return to school if they don’t like what they’re hearing from scouts as long as they don’t hire an agent. In Robinson’s post, he said he wouldn’t hire an agent at this time because, “I do not want to leave the possibility of returning to college.”
Head coach Mike White said the team will support his decision either way, although he admitted he would like to have another chance to coach Robinson.
This past season, Robinson averaged nine points and nearly six rebounds game for the Gators, rotating in between roles as a starter and coming off the bench.
