Florida F Stokes latest player to transfer from program
Field Level Mediaon
Florida power forward Isaiah Stokes has decided to transfer after struggling with injuries, his weight and inconsistency the past two years, according to multiple reports.
The younger brother of former Tennessee star big man Jarnell Stokes entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal Wednesday. Listed currently at 6-foot-8, 270 pounds, Isaiah Stokes had trouble recovering from knee surgery before enrolling at Florida and had difficulty losing enough weight to get into top physical condition.
He reportedly weighed around 300 pounds at one point and redshirted as a freshman. In 2018-19, he averaged 2.7 points and one rebound in 7.1 minutes per game across 26 appearances.
Stokes' departure comes a week after former Virginia Tech forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. announced on Instagram that he would join head coach Mike White and the Gators as a graduate transfer.
Stokes is one of several players who have transferred from the Florida program in the past few months. Others have included Keith Stone (to Miami), Chase Johnson (Dayton), Mike Okauru (UNC Wilmington) and Deaundrae Ballard (South Alabama).
