E.J. Floreal, son of University of Kentucky track and field coach Edrick Floreal, will be a walk-on with the UK basketball team next season, according to his Twitter page.

Floreal played this past season at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Lexington after transferring from California when his father, the track coach at Stanford, took the position at Kentucky.

He is a 6-foot-5 swingman who had received interest from San Francisco, Santa Clara, UC-Davis and Tennessee.
