Donovan Talks About Chris Walker's Arrival

Gainesville, FL---If you watching Greg Brzozowski and Newschannel 7 Sports over the weekend you saw him report that Holmes alum Chris Walker is now enrolled at Florida.

Chris is in fact now practicing with the Gators basketball team, though because he's still waiting for final NCAA clearance, he won't travel with the team to New York tomorrow for the game against Memphis. Billy Donovan talked about Walker's arrival Monday.

"Yeah a couple of things. One is we're really really happy that he's here. More than anything else, not as it relates to our team but as it relates to him. Because that kid has really worked hard and shown great, great resiliency to want to be here. And I think the fact that he has worked so hard says a lot about his commitment to want to be at Florida."

The other thing says Donovan, is Walker's likely discovery how far behind he is after a few practices with his UF teammates. It will be interesting to see what kind of basketball shape Walker is in when he finally hits the court, which could Saturday when Florida hosts Fresno State.
