Gators, Todd Golden land VMI transfer guard Trey Bonham
The Florida men’s basketball program landed its third addition to the roster on Monday afternoon under new head coach Todd Golden in Trey Bonham, a 6-foot guard from Mobile, Alabama, who spent both seasons previous to the Virginia Military Institute.
“Beat the odds and stay humble #COMMITTED,” Bonham posted on his Twitter account. Bonham also shared a photo of himself in a Florida uniform during his official visit to UF over the weekend.

Trey Bonham third transfer to Gators basketball in recent weeks
Starting in the 29 games he played, Bonham averaged 13.6 points, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 4.4 rebounds with the Keydets during the 2021-22 regular season. As a freshman at VMI, Bonham played in 24 games, including seven starts, and finished the season averaging 8.6 points per game.
He joins former Belmont guard Will Richard and former LSU winger Alex Fudge as transfers in Golden’s first offseason with the program after arriving from San Francisco.
Florida received a frontcourt boost with Castleton’s decision to return, and the Gators will also bring back guards Myreon Jones and Kowacie Reeves for the 2022-23 campaign.
Neither Jason Jitoboh, Elijah Kennedy or Niels Lane have publicly given any indication that they plan to leave the program, and all three players were part of the group present for the start of voluntary individual training.
