Chris Walker still not eligible at Florida

Kentucky is probably Chris Walker's favorite

Uh oh. This isn’t good news for fans of Florida basketball — both of them.

Billy Donovan said today that incoming freshman Chris Walker’s academic status is still undetermined but it will be decided in the coming weeks. Walker is Florida’s top recruit and the sixth overall player in the 2013 class. According to the beat writer from the Orlando Sentinel, Donovan said he “has his fingers crossed.”

This would be a HUGE blow to the Gators next season.

    Gaytor fans trash us all the time. I won’t feel a damn bit sorry if that kid NEVER suits up in an ugly fla. uniform.

    Fortunately for Florida, they’re not Kentucky, so he’ll get to play.

    I hope he can play. What kind of miscreant roots against a young person getting to play a game he’s gifted at?

    #7 do you hear yourself? Gator fans trash us and you root for a kid to fail? I’m all for rooting against UofL, FL, UT or whoever when their team is on the floor or on the field, but being happy if an 18 year old kid can’t go to school is wrong.

    #11 I understand being put off by someone wanting a kid to fail In life. But, all #7 said was he wouldnt feel sorry If he never suited up for UF. Even If he doesnt play this year, he will still make millions In the NBA and have a nicer life than most of us. Switch your tampon and eat a Snickers.

    I won’t root for a kid to fail, but I will recognize that it’s most likely his fault for failing classes so I can’t feel sorry for him

    I for one would like to see him on their team next yr. Can’t help having 2 (maybe 3 if UK plays them 3 times) wins against a really good Florida team on our resume come March

    This happens every year, and almost every one of these kids end up suiting up their first game for whatever program they choose. Normally it is with reclassifications though.
