Redshirt sophomore forward Cody Larson is no longer a part of the Florida basketball team. Larson had his scholarship pulled and was told he could be a walk-on by Billy Donovan, but Friday he dedided to quit the team.
In a statement released by the university athletic department the former Roosevelt standout said "After a lot of careful thought, I have decided that I need to place my focus on my personal life and my academics...I really appreciate Coach Donovan and the whole staff here at Florida for the support they have given me, and that made this decision even harder."
A school spokesman said Larson will remain at Florida through the fall semester.
Cody scored 12 points in the 25 games he saw action last year.
