DeVon Walker (25) walks off the court after the Gators' loss to Michigan in the NCAA Tournament.

Florida G/F DeVon Walker, who was granted his release to transfer last week, has decided to return to school.

Walker, a sophomore who played sparingly as a freshman last season, is enrolled in summer classes.

“Florida is such a great place, and the more I thought about it, I just realized this is where I want to be,” Walker said. “The coaching staff has helped me get better on and off the court over the past year and I really enjoy being around my teammates, so I’m excited to refocus on my future here in Gainesville.”

Walker played in 25 games during his freshman year, scoring 20 points, with 17 rebounds and blocked four shots.

“We always encourage guys to do what they feel is best for their future, and we’re glad that DeVon will be continuing with us here at Florida,” coach Billy Donovan said.
