Florida sophomore point guard Tre Mann will forgo his remaining eligibility and enter the 2021 NBA Draft.
“After much consideration, I have decided to take the next step in my basketball career and will declare for the 2021 NBA Draft,” he posted Tuesday on Twitter.
The 6-foot-5 Gainesville native averaged 16.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 24 starts for his hometown Gators in 2020-21, earning All-Southeastern Conference first-team honors. Mann shot 40.2 percent from 3-point range and 83.1 percent from the free-throw line.
Mann, 20, helped Florida (15-10, 9-7 SEC) earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament despite losing preseason SEC Player of the Year Keyontae Johnson in December. The seventh-seeded Gators’ season ended Sunday with an 81-78 loss to No. 15 seed Oral Roberts in the second round of the South Region.
The former McDonald’s high school All-American averaged 5.3 points and 17.8 minutes in 29 games (four starts) as a 2019-20 Florida freshman.
