Sophomore guard Jai Lucas announced today that he will be leaving the Florida Gators men's basketball program. He is the son of former NBA player and coach John Lucas.
The younger Lucas was recruited by Kentucky and Oklahoma State, amongst many other schools, prior to signing a letter of intent to play for UF.
This is the second player this off-season to leave Billy Donovan's squad, as forward Jonathan Mitchell departed for Rutgers over the summer.
