A five-star product who signed with the Gators out of Montverde Academy, Nembhard declared for the 2020 NBA Draft after starting every game during his two years at Florida.

After returning to Gainesville for his sophomore season, he improved his scoring average to 11.2 points per game while averaging 3.1 rebounds and 5.6 assists per contest.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Nembhard will have to sit out this upcoming season unless he is granted immediate eligibility.

    • Jack: The Gators will likely look to either Cleveland State transfer Tyree Appleby or sophomore Tre Mann to take over the starting point guard slot. Mann is still checking out his NBA option. The NBA has set Oct. 16 as the official date for the 2020 draft thanks to COVID-19. So, players like Mann have until Aug. 17 to withdraw. And UF also has rising sophomore Ques Glover on the roster.
