As if all of Gainesville, Fla. wasn’t already trying to grab onto an inner tube to stay afloat in their sea of tears following Billy Donovan’s departure, the hits just keep on coming.
Four-star shooting guard KeVaughn Allen, from Little Rock, AR., is not entirely sure he wants to attend the University of Florida without Donovan at the helm.
Hearing reports that KeVaughn Allen wanting out of LOI at UF may be a little premature. May be in wait and see mode w/new coach.

The two other four-star players the Gators have coming in are Noah Dickerson, a power forward from Montverde, Fla., and Keith Stone, a small forward from Deerfield Beach, Fla.
With the announcement from junior shooting guard Michael Frazier II that he’ll be entering the 2015 NBA Draft — despite the fact that he very well could go undrafted — the need for a shooting guard is as big as ever. The loss of Allen, if he does ask for a release from his letter of intent, hurts a lot.
Now, if the Gators end up hiring a head coach to Allen’s liking, there could be a chance he stays. Xavier’s Chris Mack, Wichita State’s Greg Marshall, and Dayton’s Archie Miller are all potential candidates.
It’s Jeremy Foley’s move now.
