Florida’s crowded roster opened up a spot Wednesday.
Redshirt sophomore Isaiah Stokes decided to transfer seven days after Florida gained transfer big man Kerry Blackshear Jr.
Stokes (6-foot-8, 270 pounds) sat out a year as a redshirt after suffering a torn ACL in high school and played in 26 games last season for the Gators.
He averaged 2.7 points and 1.0 rebounds a game in his one season in Gainesville while dealing with a weight issue.
Florida now has 12 players on scholarship, one short of the maximum.
Stokes is part of UF’s 2017 recruiting class no longer on campus after transfers: Chase Johnson (Dayton), Mike Okauru (UNC Wilmington) and Deaundrae Ballard (South Alabama). Keith Stone (Miami) also transferred after the season.
Blackshear joins three returning starters and a top-10 recruiting class that features McDonald’s All-Americans Scottie Lewis and Tre Mann.
