Former Michigan forward Horford transfers to Florida

Former Michigan forward Jon Horford is transferring to Florida for his final year of college eligibility.

Horford’s older brother, Al, confirmed the decision before yesterday’s NBA playoff game between the Atlanta Hawks and Indiana Pacers. Al Horford spent three seasons at Florida, helping the Gators win national championships in 2006 and 2007.

Jon Horford, who is 6 feet 10, averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13.8 minutes last season.

• The NCAA levied penalties against the Idaho football team for failing to meet academic standards for the 2009 through 2012 seasons.

The Vandals will be ineligible for bowl games or the College Football Playoff this season. In addition, they will lose four hours of practice time per week and must use that time for study hall.

• The Otterbein men’s and women’s tennis teams claimed Ohio Athletic Conference regular-season titles with 9-0 victories over Heidelberg.

The teams are coached by husband and wife Mark and Pat Anderson.
