GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Former Michigan forward Jon Horford is transferring to Florida for his final year of college eligibility.
Horford's older brother, Al, confirmed the decision Saturday before the Atlanta Hawks hosted the Indiana Pacers in the NBA playoffs. Al Horford spent three seasons at Florida, helping the Gators win consecutive national championships in 2006 and 2007.
ESPN.com first reported Horford's choice.
The 6-foot-10 Horford averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13.8 minutes a game last season, helping the Wolverines win the Big Ten.
Horford is scheduled to complete his undergraduate degree in May. He is taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows graduate students to change schools without having to sit out a year under normal transfer rules.
