Cody Larson is leaving the Florida men's basketball team. The school along with the former Roosevelt standout made the announcement Friday.
“After a lot of careful thought, I have decided that I need to place my focus on my personal life and my academics," Larson said. "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.”
Larson was taken off scholarship by Florida head coach Billy Donovan this summer. He had the opportunity to earn it back as a walk-on. Last season, Larson played in 25 games off the bench.
