Florida basketball landed the commitment of EJ Jarvis in the transfer portal yesterday, but Golden and the Gators are far from done picking up talented guys in the portal.
With Rick Pitino taking the head coaching job at St. John’s, a lot of their players are looking for a new place to call home.
One of those players is freshman guard AJ Storr, who the Gators have contacted since he entered the portal.
The 6’6”-200 pounder out of Rockford, Illinois has drawn a lot of attention from teams around the country. He’s also heard from UConn, Miami, Xavier, Gonzaga, and many others.
Storr got to see some good action in his freshman season, but only got to start in half of the games he played in. In just over 21 minutes per game, AJ scored 8.8 points and grabbed 1.9 rebounds.
Those numbers don’t jump off the page but when you remember he was a freshman without a ton of playing time and freedom, they make more sense.
What makes Storr such an intriguing player for a lot of schools is his shooting ability. He shot 43.4% from the field, 40.4% from long range, and 75% from the free throw line.
He never backed down from the moment either. In clutch time, AJ showed the composure of an older player and wanted the ball in his hands when it mattered most.
Storr would bring elevated scoring to a Gators team in desperate need of it. He’d be the best shooter on the team from the second he walked into the building and would see a steady workload throughout the year.
He would make a great combo with Walter Clayton Jr., another transfer target for the Gators if they both decided to continue their careers in Gainesville.
Golden needs guards in the portal, and Storr could be his guy.
Keep up with Florida basketball at Hail Florida Hail.
