“My family and I have came to a great decision!” Walker wrote on Twitter. “With that being said I would like to say I have committed to The Ohio State University!”
Walker has two years of eligibility remaining in college and will have to sit out the 2018-19 season under current NCAA transfer rules.
An Indianapolis native, Walker was recruited by Chris Holtmann when the Buckeyes coach was at Butler and Walker was a player in the 2016 recruiting class. Walker was considered the No. 24 point guard and a 4-star recruit in his class.
Walker’s production dropped off toward the end of the 2017-18 season for the Seminoles. He averaged just 3.4 points per game during Florida State’s five games in the ACC and NCAA tourneys.
