University of Florida junior forward Devin Robinson has tested enough of the water. The 6-foot-8 Virginia native announced on his Instagram account on Friday that he will hire an agent and give up the year remaining of his college eligibility to enter the NBA draft. He had previously announced he would consult with the league and attend the combine in Chicago next month, which he could have done and returned to school, as long as he didn’t hire an agent. “This decision was not easy for me; in fact, it was one of the hardest decisions I have ever faced,” Robinson posted. “I will be leaving a place that has become my second home. I know I am ready for this next step and I am personally excited for all the new challenges that will be presented with this decision. I will always cheer on and be a huge supporter of the University of Florida. I will forever be a Gator.” Robinson was praised by UF coach Mike White in being one of the players instrumental in getting the team back to the NCAA tournament after a two-year absence. Robinson averaged 11.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game in 2016-2017, helped the Gators go 27-9 and reach the Elite Eight.
