Devin Robinson returning for junior season: Robinson had declared for the NBA Draft earlier this month, but, as mentioned in yesterday's CAB, he underwent foot surgery last week to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. Robinson faces a four-to-six month recovery period after the surgery and thus would not have been able to work out for any NBA teams. Florida confirmed Robinson's return and Mike White noted that he faces an extensive recovery process.

Bridget Sloan receives 2016 Honda Sports Award for gymnastics: The award distinguishes Sloan as the nation's top collegiate female gymnastic athlete. Sloan previously won the award as a freshman in 2013. Kyrta Hunter won in 2012 and 2015, making a Gator gymnast the recipient of the honor four out of the last five years. (Florida Gators)
Kyra Jefferson makes collegiate history: The Florida sprinter became the first woman in history to break 11.20 in the 100 meters, 22.25 seconds in the 200 meters, and 51.51 seconds in the 400 meters as a collegian. Jefferson is also one of only five women in the world since 2002 to break those times. (Zach Dirlam, Florida Gators)
Former Gator Jeff Driskel prepares for NFL Draft: Wish Jeff nothing but the best. (Chris Hays, Orlando Sentinel)
James Bates' artistic side: Batesy's art has been well known to Gator fans for awhile. He just finished a painting of Mr. Two Bits on a 4'x6' piece of wood, which took him weeks to complete. And also tweeted this gem of a shirtless Mark Richt throwing up the "U" after the announcement of Florida's scheduled 2019 game with the Hurricanes. (Edward Aschoff, ESPN)
