The Gonzaga Bulldogs have received the commitment of one of the best transfers in the transfer pool this year. Florida Gator’s guard Andrew Nembhard will be playing for Head Coach Mark Few and the Gonzaga Bulldogs for his last two remaining years of college eligibility. He decided to withdraw from the 2020 NBA Draft and then announced he would be transferring away from Florida. This is a massive get for Gonzaga who will need more guard help in 2021 after Nembhard sits out a year.
Florida transfer Andrew Nembhard, the nation’s top available transfer, has committed to Gonzaga.
He’ll sit next season and have two years left to play. Bulldogs really wanted a PG in 2021 to replace Jalen Suggs; Nembhard will fill that void. Huge pickup for Mark Few and co.

Gonzaga is typically always a top ten team in the NCAA and moves like this show how they continue to manage the feat. Nembhard will get a year to sit in one of the best college basketball programs and then be handed the keys to run the team. He will have two years left to play under Mark Few and the Bulldogs. This could be an ideal match for both the player and the team involved. Nembhard should only continue to get better and his third year could be spectacular with Gonzaga.
He will enter play in 2021 as one of the better guards in the NCAA and will give Gonzaga an immediate edge. The teammates around him will matter, but he could be a great centerpiece for Head Coach Mark Few. The former Florida Gator will have a year to get used to living across the country before he has to play college basketball again.
