Yesterday Kenny Boynton made his plans to stick around for his senior year official. Today center Patric Young’s mother, Bennita Young, says her son will be returning to Florida’s basketball team next season, too:
“I don’t think there was ever a decision to be made. We haven’t talked about Patric leaving as a family and we’re very close. He enjoys college. His dad and I both finished college. Now, will he stay four years? I don’t know that.”
Young will be a junior in 2012-13.
With Young, Boynton and Erik Murphy returning, the Gators will feature at least three of the starters from this past season’s Elite Eight team.
Erving Walker has graduated and freshman star Bradley Beal — expected to be a top NBA draft pick — is likely to announce he’ll leave school after just one season.
Still, Billy Donovan won’t have to go through the almost total rebuild that John Calipari will likely face at Kentucky. (Though total rebuilds don’t look as tough today as they once did.)
