GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Florida basketball program has lost another player.

Coach Billy Donovan announced Monday that freshman guard/forward DeVon Walker has been granted his release and will be transferring.

"DeVon has a bright future, and we hope for the best for him wherever he chooses to go," Donovan said in a statement.

The 6-foot-6 Walker played in 25 games and scored 20 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and blocked four shots.

He is the second freshman to transfer. Point guard Braxton Ogbueze, who played in only 23 games and scored only 19 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and had seven assists, announced he was leaving last week.
