KeVaughn Allen Will Remain With Florida Gators

Four-star recruit KeVaughn Allen will not seek a release and remain with the Florida Gators. ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported the update on Allen’s status.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported a couple of weeks ago that the young man from Little Rock was seeking a release from his letter of intent in light of longtime Gators coach Billy Donovan leaving to coach the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder. Now, it appears that Allen will give new coach Michael White a shot. It also helps Florida as a whole, as the team now has a strong backcourt player that can hopefully get the Gators back to the postseason.

Florida was 16-17 (8-10 SEC) in its final season under Donovan and missed the NCAA Tournament for only the fifth time in his 19 years manning the sidelines. Over that stretch, the Gators went 467-186 (202-109 SEC) and won two national titles in 2006 and 2007, plus made four total trips to the Final Four.
