Following in the footsteps of his older brother Erik, Alex Murphy of South Kingstown, will play basketball for Billy Donovan at the University of Florida.

Murphy annouced his decision to transfer from Duke to Florida on Twitter Wednesday. He said, "It's official, I'm a Florida Gator! I'm more than excited and can't wait to get down to Gainesville soon!!!"

Alex is a Redshirt sophomore at Duke and is averaging only 6.6 minutes per game. He is leaving after the fall semester and will be eligible next spring for the Gators.
