Gators Officially Announce the Addition of VMI Transfer Trey Bonham

Trey Bonham, the 6-foot 170-pound point guard from Virginia Military Institute, has officially committed to play for the Florida Gators. Take a look at how the new head coach Todd Golden is hitting the transfer portal hard after just weeks on the job.

Bonham Coming in Hot

Bonham has averaged 13.6 points, 4.o assists, and 4.4 rebounds across the two seasons he spent playing for the Keydets in the South Conference. He started in 29 of those games.

Alongside that, Bonham shot 48 percent from the field, 36 percent from the 3-point range, and drained 82 percent of his free throws. Bonham shot a higher clip on two-point shots at 54 percent while Tyree Appleby, who is transferring from the Gators program, managed 41 percent on similar shots.

During a game against Samford, Bonham was able to score 31 points, the highest in his career.

Preview of The Gator’s 2022-23 Season

The Gators have reeled in a total of three players from the transfer portal. Coach golden took in four-star guard Will Richard from the Belmont Bruins who averaged 12.1 points, 6.o rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game as a freshman. Florida also acquired another four-star forward Alex Fudge from LSU. During his 2021-22 season, Fudge averaged just 3.3 points and 3.2 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game. Concluding this information, the Gators are looking good so far considering both are listed as No. 29 and No. 32 prospects.

Now we wait to see if Golden’s efforts in retooling the Florida roster will help the team get back to the NCAA tournament next season. The Gators missed the tournament last season for the first time since 2016.
