Report: Chris Walker not expected to return to Florida

Chris Walker is not expected to return to Florida for the 2015-16 season, according to a report from Scout.com.

It’s unclear whether or not Walker is going to be heading to the professional ranks or transferring to a different program, but it seems clear that he will not be on Florida’s roster come November.

Walker is a former top ten recruit that struggled mightily for the second straight season. As a freshman, he missed the first half of the year and then found himself stuck on the bench for a team that was ranked No. 1 in the country and reached the Final Four. He was a freshman still finding his way behind a talented, experienced front line.

This past season was a different story, however. Walker finished his sophomore season averaging just 4.7 points and 3.5 boards, making him arguably the least-effective top ten recruit we’ve seen since the one-and-done rule was put into effect.

Walker is a sensational athlete, but he’s still learning how to play the game of basketball.
