GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida coach Billy Donovan is sympathetic to changes of heart.
   
So it's no surprise that Donovan, who once returned to Gainesville after taking the Orlando Magic's coaching job, welcomed back freshman swingman DeVon Walker on Monday.
   
Florida granted Walker his release from scholarship last week so he could transfer elsewhere. But Walker changed his mind over the weekend, saying he "just realized this is where I want to be."
   
Like he did with forward Alex Tyus a few years ago, Donovan applauded Walker's decision to stay. Donovan says, "We always encourage guys to do what they feel is best for their future and we're glad that DeVon will be continuing with us here at Florida."
   
Walker played in 25 games as a freshman, finishing with 20 points and 17 rebounds.
