The brother of Al Horford - a stalwart on UF's two national title teams - has decided to transfer to play his final season for the Gators.

ESPN.com's John Goodman reports Jon Horford will leave Michigan and join coach Billy Donovan's Gators.

The 6-foot-10, 250-pound Horford is expected to graduate next month and will be eligible next season as a redshirt senior.

Unlike his older brother, Horford will be more of a role player, like he was at Michigan. This past season, Horford averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds and 13.8 minutes for the Wolverines.

For the Gators next season, Horford will be among a mix of players that includes 6-foot-10 sophomore Chris Walker, 6-foot-10 redshirt Damontre Harris, redshirt juniors Dorian Finney-Smith (6-8, 212) and Alex Murphy  (6-9, 220) and 6-foot-8 freshman Devin Robinson, a five-star recruit from Virginia.

Horford's transfer fills out UF's scholarship allotment for 2014-15.

Four-star guard Brandone Francis and four-star point guard Chris Chiozza round out  next season's recruiting class. Murphy, a transfer from Duke, will not be eligible until the spring semester.

UF's roster for next season now is expected to include five transfers among the 13 players on scholarship.
