ESPN College Basketball Insider Jeff Goodman is reporting that Michigan Wolverines forward Jon Horford has decided to transfer to the Florida Gators.

Following Michigan's run to the Elite 8, Horford announced that he would be leaving the team to pursue a change of scenery and more playing time. With the Gators losing a bevy of players from their senior class this season, Florida might be the perfect spot for the current redshirt junior from Lansing, Mich.

In three years at Michigan, Horford was a very solid role player for the Wolverines, accumulating a usage rate of roughly 16 percent each season in Ann Arbor. The 2013-14 season provided Horford's best season statistically as he averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 512 minutes.

Horford is the brother of Al Horford, currently of the Atlanta Hawks, and formerly a Florida Gator himself. Horford, along with the likes of Joakim Noah and Corey Brewer, won back-to-back National Championships in 2006 and 2007 with head coach Billy Donovan under the helm.
