UF coach Mike White got more good offseason news Tuesday when leading scorer Keyontae Johnson announced he plans to return to school.
Johnson’s emergence as a sophomore this past season led to speculation he might enter the NBA draft. He recorded five double-doubles during the season’s closing nine games to earn a spot on the nine-man All-SEC first team.
Johnson led the Gators with an average 14 points and 38 total steals. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound forward was second on the team with 7.1 rebounds a game and a 3-point shooting percentage of 38%. He also chipped in 49 assists.
