HOOPS: Walker not on campus

McDonald's All-American forward Chris Walker did not academically qualify for the fall semester. 

Florida's basketball signee -- a 6-foot-11, 230-pound five-star recruit from Bonifay -- missed Tuesday's deadline for the university's drop/add period for fall registration. 

Walker told ESPN's Jeff Goodman he plans to enroll in December and still play for Billy Donovan's team.

The athletic freshman remains optimistic he will complete his academic requirements for spring eligibility.

"It's a minor setback, and everyday I'm working hard to get to Florida," Walker told ESPN. "Now I understand how serious high school is and that you can't take the work lightly. I didn't do as well and work as hard as I should have early in high school." 

Walker was the nation's No. 6 player in the Class of 2013, according to Rivals.com

We will welcome SkyWalker in December just in time for the big dance. In the meantime we are stocked in the post and will do just fine.
As always, Go Gators!

Yep this BB team is loaded, Walker will be a nice addition come tourney time. Bur we should be fine without him too.
