GAINESVILLE, Fl. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Former Virginia Tech forward and Florida native Kerry Blackshear Jr. is expected to transfer to Florida, according to multiple reports.
This comes after earlier reports Wednesday afternoon that Blackshear was considering a return to Virginia Tech or transferring to Tennessee. Because Blackshear has already graduated, he will be immediately eligible to play for the Gators next season.
After leading the Hokies to a Sweet 16 appearance, Blackshear entered his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal and quickly attracted interest from several schools.
Blackshear was a second-team All-ACC selection this past season, while averaging 14.9 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per game.
