Florida center Gorjok Gak ruled ineligable to play in 2016-17 season

Florida Gators fans will have to wait at least one more year before seeing four-star, 6-foot-11 recruit Gorjok Gak in action.

Incoming freshman Gorjok Gak has been ruled ineligible by the NCAA to play in the 2016-17 season for the Florida Gators.

The Gators announced Tuesday, July 26 that Gak will be able to enroll in classes and practice with the team, but won't be able to see any game action. The 6-foot-11, 205-pound center, who's originally from Australia, signed a national letter of content last November to play for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, but Gak changed his mind after head coach Travis Ford was fired in March.

Gak quickly signed with the Gators in April.


Gak was a four-star recruit according to Scout's recruiting index after averaging 13.8 points and 9.3 rebounds last season at Victory Rock Prep in Bradenton, Florida.

If Gak handles his business, he will be eligible to play in the 2017-18 season and will have a total of three years of potential playing time.
