More great news regarding the recovery of University of Florida basketball star Keyontae Johnson who continues to make great progress less than a week after he collapsed on the court.
But, he's awake and was reportedly talking with friends and family members earlier this week.
Remember, Johnson was placed into a medically induced coma after the incident during Saturday's Florida vs. Florida State game in Tallahassee.
Now, UF athletic director Scott Stricklin has another update ... saying, "Keyontae Johnson continues to show truly encouraging signs of progress as he undergoes tests and further evaluation at UF Health."
"He and his family have again expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of love, prayers and well-wishes."
Stricklin also announced the school has postponed the team's next 3 scheduled basketball games in the wake of Keyontae's situation.
"This has been an emotionally taxing time for Keyontae's family, friends and teammates," Stricklin said.
"Our hope is that everyone impacted will take an opportunity to process those emotions and regroup ahead of the start of the new year."
Florida will return to the court on Dec. 30 to take on Vanderbilt.
