Egor Koulechov was the No. 1 graduate transfer on the market, averaging more than 18 points and 8 rebounds a game for Rice last season. He shot 47 percent from the 3-point line.
“I finally made up my mind, I chose Florida,” Koulechov said. “It was one of those really hard decisions that could determine a good chunk of my career. It just feels right.”
“I’m fully committed to it and fully invested in it,” he added. “It’s a load off my chest. It was a really hard decision because of my relationship with Carlin Hartman because he coached me.”
