Florida forward Devin Robinson enters NBA Draft

Devin Robinson will forgo his senior season to enter the draft.

Gators forward Devin Robinson will forgo his final season at Florida to enter the NBA Draft.

Robinson, a 6-8 slasher, averaged 11.1 points and 6.1 rebounds last season while helping Florida reach the Elite Eight.

"This decision was not easy for me; in fact, it was one of the hardest decisions I have ever faced," Robinson wrote in a letter posted on social media. "I know I am ready for this next step and I am personally excited for all the new challenges that will be presented with this decision."

Robinson is a versatile athlete who can score in a variety of ways, and is also an active defender.

"We'll miss Devin here, but he'll always be a part of the Gator family," Gators coach Mike White said. "We're excited for Devin as he continues to pursue his dream and grateful for his role in helping reestablish the culture and success of the Florida basketball program."

Despite some losses, Florida is expected to compete again next season with recruits Isaiah Stokes, DeAundre Ballard and Chase Johnson signed on to play. The Gators will also have Virginia Tech transfer Jalen Hudson —who sat out last season.
