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.
