Florida redshirt freshman forward Chase Johnson is transferring, the school announced Thursday on its website.
Johnson, plagued with concussions the past two years, scored 23 points and had 12 rebounds in six total games. The Ripley, W.Va., native appeared in the first four games of the 2017-18 season before missing the remainder of the year under concussion protocol and was granted a medical redshirt. Johnson appeared in two games this season, but suffered another concussion in November.
“We wish Chase nothing but the best and will support him however we can as he moves on from Florida,” UF coach Mike White said.
The Gators (7-4) host Butler at 4 p.m. Saturday.
