Macklin to Florida

The Florida media is reporting that Vernon Macklin will be transferring to the University of Florida.

I have to say, I'm a little surprised that Florida would expend a scholarship on a player like Macklin. Not ot say that he's not talented, but a scholarship is a valuable commodity for a big program like Florida and Macklin will only be able to contribute for a year -- and that's assuming that he actually fits into the Gator's scheme.

Very interesting.

yep, would be 2 years, like PE Jr. for us. And for a guy who shot 23% on free throws, a developmental year is a good idea.
