Gonzaga lands Florida transfer Nembhard

Point guard Andrew Nembhard plans to transfer from Florida to Gonzaga, where he will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2020-21 season.

Nembhard, a former five-star recruit, averaged 11.2 points and 5.6 assists as a sophomore in the 2019-20 season.

Gonzaga landed top recruit Jalen Suggs, also a point guard, in the 2020 recruiting class. Suggs is viewed as a potential one-and-done candidate, but Gonzaga coach Mark Few is known for stockpiling guards and playing as many as four in his perimeter-based offense.

Nembhard played in 67 games at Florida and announced his intention to transfer in late May.
