Miami landed a commitment from five-star guard Lonnie Walker on Wednesday morning.

The Hurricanes beat out Villanova and Arizona, among others, for the Philly product, who officially has become the king of tweeting out commitment edits with this Muhammad Ali picture:

Walker is the fourth member of Jim LarraΓ±aga’s 2017 recruiting class, joining Chris Lykes, Sam Waardenburg and Deng Gak.

Walker is a product of the same AAU program that sent Ja’Quan Newton to Coral Gables.
