Florida announces transfer of Jon Horford from Michigan

This doesn't mean much, but it's official.

Florida announced the long-since-reported transfer of former Michigan forward Jon Horford to Florida on Tuesday, confirming multiple April reports that he would join the Gators.

Horford, the younger brother of Florida great Al Horford, reportedly chose Florida in late April over several other big-name schools, including Duke, Louisville, and UConn.

His transfer from Michigan, where he would have played extensively in 2014-15 after the departures of Mitch McGary and Jordan Morgan, was a shock to the Wolverines' system. But his destination was heavily rumored to be Florida from the jump, to the point that his transfer to Gainesville was treated as a given this spring.

Horford is enrolled in Summer A classes at Florida and will be eligible immediately this fall, giving the Gators an experienced big man who could back up or play with Chris Walker, and serves as a substantial insurance policy for Damontre Harris should Harris fail to fully restore himself to Billy Donovan's good graces.

Horford's enrollment means that Florida has currently allocated all 13 of its scholarships for the 2014-15 school year.
