Homes Star Chris Walker's Status Still Up In The Air


Gainesville, FL--- We still can't be sure if Holmes start Chris Walker is going to be playing for the Gators this upcoming season.

As we've told you a few times in recent weeks, Chris has been working through the summer to become academically eligible for division one ball.

Wednesday is the first day of classes at the University of Florida, but it's not the deadline to register for classes.

Drop/Add ends this coming Tuesday so that's the absolute deadline.

The Gators recently updated their 2013-2014 roster online and Chris is not listed there.

That a strong indication they don't expect him to meet the NCAA academic standards for the fall semester. Billy Donovan has said repeatedly they would still welcome Walker for the spring semester.

If that happens he'd miss the first 12 games, but could enrolled and eligible to start playing in January when the conference season kicks in. We'll keep you advised when we know something definitive.
