Florida adds DeVon Walker to 2012 class
Florida needs to replace Brad Beal and Erving Walker for next season. Friday, the Gators added their fourth perimeter player in the 2012 class, 6-foot-6 swingman DeVon Walker.
DeVon Walker, a 6-foot-6 swingman from Winter Haven (Fla.), committed to the Gators.
“He thought that he would rather play closer to home and in his home state,” Shadrick Davis, Walker’s stepfather, told Scout.com. “He wanted to represent his own state. He thought that was a great thing to do.”
Walker chose Florida over Alabama, with Clemson and Kansas State also in the mix down the stretch.
He is the fourth perimeter player in the Gators’ 2012 recruiting class, joining four-star prospects Braxton Ogbueze and Michael Frazier, as well as Dillon Graham. There are holes in the Florida backcourt for next season, with Beal and senior Erving Walker moving on.
