Returning: Florida is a team dominated by juniors and seniors. The Gators will lose Kenny Boynton, Mike Rosario and Erik Murphy to graduation, but Patric Young, Scottie Wilbekin, Will Yeguete and Casey Prather will all be seniors. They will be the core of next year’s team, and freshman Michael Frazier will play an increased role. The Gators will also get the services of Virginia Tech transfer Dorian Finney-Smith and South Carolina transfer Damontre Harris.
Recruiting: Billy Donovan has signed just two players for 2013, but they are really good players. Point guard Kasey Hill and power forward Chris Walker are both considered five star players, according to Rivals.com. They will provide immediate help for Florida.
Verdict: Florida is one of the best teams in the country this year, and the Gators return a lot next season. However, the safe bet is that Florida will not be running through the SEC like it has this year and will take a step back.
