Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney is returning for his senior season. He announced his decision Sunday afternoon on Twitter.

He posted the following: “I would like to announce that I will be returning to be a Gator another year. 2020 We Got Goals To Accomplish and I Wouldn’t Want To Miss It For the World.”

With Toney’s decision to return, the Gators have only one underclassman in the NFL draft — junior cornerback CJ Henderson, who declared his intentions back in December and did not stay with the team for the Orange Bowl.

Toney, a 5-foot-11, 194-pound dual-threat runner and receiver, is a potential home-run hitter in a UF offense that must replace its four leading wide receivers from the 2019 season — seniors Van Jefferson, Josh Hammond, Freddie Swain and Tyrie Cleveland.

Toney missed almost half of last season (six games) with a shoulder injury. He ended up with 12 rushes for 59 yards and 10 receptions for 194 yards and a touchdown.

Friday was the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft.
