From the "Only Gators" website:

Payne played a reserve role for the Gators this past season, averaging 15.7 minutes per game while posting 3.8 points and 3.2 rebounds. He was largely inconsistent from game to game, but he frequently came through with big efforts against UF’s toughest opponents. Payne was suspended for the first game of the 2021 NCAA Tournament for disciplinary reasons that head coach Mike White chose not to speak about further after the game. This came after Payne was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the SEC Tournament for throwing an elbow.

On a potentially anecdotally positive note, my good friend is a huge Tennessee fan and he said Payne was extremely apologetic afterward and that he thinks it's all good.

I'm not defending the kid's actions, but I'm willing to give him a chance to prove himself before I judge him harshly.
