Miramar Beach, FL---This is always a nervous time of year you could say for Florida head basketball coach Billy Donovan. That's because he is used to sweating out the academic reports of his incoming recruits in May.
Coach Donovan talking to us about that Wednesday at the SEC meetings at the Sandestin Hilton. Specifically, Ted Williams speaking with Donovan about the five star recruit he landed from our area, Holmes post player Chris Walker.
Walker helped lead the Blue Devils to the 1A State Championship this season.
We've heard whispers in recent weeks as to whether or not Walker would be academically eligible to play at Florida come the fall, and we asked Donovan about that!
"I mean he's gotta do, obviously take care of his responsibilities and do his work. I don't know exactly what his transcripts will look like at the end of the day because his final grades haven't been posted. But that's gonna be something, he's gonna have to apply for admission and go through the process. Until we find out that, there's really not a lot I can say about it. I always keep my fingers crossed on every incoming freshman class coming in. We'll probably know a lot more maybe in a week or two."
Walker and guard Kasey Hill the two prized members of Donovan's 2013 recruiting class!
