You never like to hear about a kid getting injured, but the report has been confirmed from earlier today that Florida forward DeVon Walker tore his ACL and will not be available for the Gators this season. The injury occurred on Friday night and CBS Sports first reported the injury earlier today. Billy Donovan was already going to be in rebuilding mode a bit after the loss of a stacked senior class. Walker was expected to be a key contributor, especially on the defensive end for the Gators.
Walker was getting ready for his junior season with the Gators after 2 years of spot minutes behind the likes of Patric Young. The 6’6 forward was a 3-star prospect coming out of high school.
