Hodskins, Murphy won’t be back


Florida sophomore walk-on Zach Hodskins and redshirt senior forward Alex Murphy won’t be back with the Gators next season, sources close to both players confirmed Wednesday.

Hodskins was an inspirational story, earning preferred walk-on status to UF despite being born with one arm rounded at the elbow. The one-handed Hodskins, who became a YouTube sensation and appeared on Good Morning America, scored his first career college points last season against Jacksonville. He is reportedly seeking more playing time at another school.

Murphy is still applying for a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA and will either transfer to another school or play professionally overseas in Finland if the sixth year isn’t granted.
