Florida's Will Yeguete out four months after knee surgery
Will Yeguete was a key cog in Florida's frontcourt last season, but he will undergo a second surgery on his right knee.
Will Yeguete has battled injuries throughout most of his career at Florida, and he will have to recover from another surgery heading into his senior season.

Yeguete had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in early February, but returned to play in the team’s final six regular-season games and the NCAA tournament. During his sophomore season, he missed the final nine games due to a broken foot.
A four-month recovery period would put Yeguete on track to return at the end of September, coinciding with the start of the team’s preseason practices. The 6-foot-7 forward from France averaged 5.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last season.
Florida is expected to be a top-10 team this upcoming season. The Gators return starters Scottie Wilbekin and Patric Young, and bring in talented transfers Damontre Harris (South Carolina) and Dorian Finney-Smith (Virginia Tech), along with five-star recruits Kasey Hill and Chris Walker. Role players Casey Prather and Michael Frazier are also back. Eli Carter announced he was transferring to Florida last month, and there’s a chance he gets a waiver to play immediately.
