Florida will hold its walk-on tryouts for the 2011-12 season at the UF basketball facility on Oct. 5 at 5 p.m.
More information on requirements for those interested in trying out for the team can be found here.
The Gators are looking to replace walk-on Kyle McClanahan, who left the team during the offseason for undisclosed reasons. McClanahan, a 6-foot-1 guard from Maitland, appeared in 33 career games for the Gators in three seasons. He scored 16 career points.
On a separate recruiting note, Florida will have three big-time visits from 2012 prospects for Saturday’s football game against Alabama. The visitors include PF Jarnell Stokes (6-8, 250, ranked 18th in ESPNU top 100), PF Brice Johnson (6-9, 210 No. 25 in ESPNU top 100) and SF Alex Poythress (6-7, 215, No. 17 in ESPNU top 100).
