Redshirt junior forward Gorjok Gak is parting ways with the Florida basketball program, the university announced Monday. Gak plans on graduating from UF in spring before pursuing grad transfer options.
Due to various injuries, Gak appeared in just 46 games for the Gators, averaging 1.9 points and 2.1 rebounds. A native of Sydney, Australia, Gak initially signed with Oklahoma State by way of Victory Prep (Fla.) before a coaching change led him to enroll at Florida.
As a freshman, Gak showed promise in 15 appearances for the Gators, but a nagging knee injury limited his impact as a sophomore, eventually resulting in Gak redshirting the 2018-19 season.
Although he appeared to work his way back into the playing rotation prior to this season, Gak suffered a dislocated shoulder in preseason camp, causing him to fall further behind Dontay Bassett, along with freshmen Omar Payne and Jason Jitoboh, in Florida’s frontcourt rotation.
Gak’s departure leaves UF with just 10 available scholarship players.
