Gainesville, FL---Good news Wednesday afternoon for Billy Donovan and the Florida basketball program.

Holmes alum Chris Walker announcing via twitter Wednesday afternoon he's decided to stay at Florida for at least his sophomore year.

The Holmes alum spent the vast majority of his freshman year watching the Gators play. Chris failed to qualify for the fall semester, then had eligibility concerns that kept him off the court until the February 4th game against Missouri.

Even after he joined the team he played sparingly, averaging 5 minutes in the 18 games he played. Just 2 points, and one rebound per for the 6-10 forward.

Chris putting it this way on twitter Wednesday "This year has been a great one, and I'm happy to say I will be joining the gatornation again for one more year!"
