Chris Walker Is Ready To Pick His School

chris-walker-spaceman-suit

Is another one on the way?  2013 power forward Chris Walker, whose recruitment with Kentucky has been slightly stranger than that sweet spaceman suit he’s wearing in the picture above, announced on his Twitter account that he’s going to pick his school November 15.  He said he will pick between “uf uconn UK fsu osu ku kstate or bu”, leaving people to wonder if there’s a hidden message in his capitalization. 

Walker has been up-and-down publicly with the Cats, saying in December that he wanted to play there, then sleeping though Coach Cal’s Cal a few months later before publicly questioning why he didn’t have a scholarship offer a few weeks ago.  He’s ranked by Scout.com as the #3 power forward in 2013.

This is what he does:

    Wouldn’t read too much into the capitalization. His phone probably auto-corrected thinking UK was meant to be the country.

    I really think there is no question that he is going to be a Cat. I think his twitter message says it all with him capitalizing UK and didn’t he just congrats Archie on picking the Cats?

    I think he will be a cat. Big Blue Madness will seal the deal

    I want him cause it looks like he could bring back a Jamal Mashburn-esque 90’s flat top. Oh not to mention that he is a Top-10 player.

    He’ll be out of this world if he wears the space suit under his uniform.

    1 has it right. The kid may end up a cat, but the UK capitalization was almost definitely his phone’s autocorrect, not his intention.

    He doesn’t have an offer.

    if he actually announces on that day, i doubt it’ll be UK. you don’t go to kansas midnight madness when u had the option to go to kentucky’s and then commit to kentucky, doesnt make much sense. also theres the fact that he doesnt have an offer

    This might sound stupid to some, but I’m curious about the size of his hands from the way he dunks the ball. It’s nice for guys his size to have big hands so they don’t get the ball knocked away easily. Could be nothing, could be something.

    My phone doesn’t auto-correct “UK”. I have a Droid. I wonder if he has a Droid. Someone find out if he has a Droid!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

    Does he have an offer? I’m a fan of his game but if he doesn’t have an offer he’s not coming here

    Every phone should auto correct UK.

    One of the benefits of being a coder for software companies is the easter eggs you can place in their stew. Go Big Blue!

    I think this player is the one that has Cal struggling to decide. Regardless of what everyone says, Cal HAS to look at the possibility of the two year rule going in the NBA. That will decide who he takes out of the 2012 class and he knows he has to save spots for the loaded 2013 class

    I dont think Cal will be giving schollys away to any kids 2 years before they can play unless they are without a doubt top 5 draft pick type of players.

    Sorry Cat fans, this one is all Gator! Kasey Hill too. You got Brandon Knight from us but Donovan isn’t letting these two get out of state. You will still get some great players no doubt, but these two are all Gator. Remember me telling you this info on Nov. 15th so you know that I wasn’t on here just trolling, this is accurate info.

    If he comes to UK, great. If not, oh well. I know he is a top talent, but he has been full of drama like Quincy Miller. I know he keeps up the charades Cal will pull his offer just like he did with Miller. I’m glad Cal doesnt like the game playin, it’s redundant and shows the player is immature, which is not what Cal wants.
    #20, wouldnt surprise me at all if he stays in Florida, but wouldnt suprise at all if he leaves. But like I said, he is too much drama for me so you can have him. As for Kasey Hill, he is a back up plan to the Harrison twins so you can have him as well.

    18, even if there is a two year rule it shouldnt effect the 2013 class, especially at PF cuz after all, we dont have any PFs committed in the 2012 class. And if we did, by the time Walker got to UK only players at his position will be the ones that come outta the ’12 class, which will probably be 1 or 2. There is PT there. But, doesnt matter to me whether he comes or not.

    He can’t sign until the fall of 2012 so he could change his mind in the next year. UF wants to keep him in Fl.

    Well the Harrison twins aren’t going to UK either so guess its on to the backup backup plan.

    what’s up with this kid? Does he or doesn’t he have a offer? Seems he is always on twitter RTng everything. Can SOMEONE do an interview with this kid and get the scoop. Cal seems to be everywhere except in Florida with this kid. I don’t know what to think!

    25, the Harrison twins are comin to madness, this will be the second time they have been on campus. I think they are serious about UK and Coach Cal. Stop bein jealous cuz they’d never considerin u!
