Wake Forest senior Ty Walker missed the first nine games of the season after being suspended for the first semester.

Walker will now also miss the final game of the season and the ACC tournament after being dismissed from the Demon Deacons for a violation of rules.

“Unfortunately it has become necessary to suspend Ty Walker indefinitely for a violation of departmental policy,” head coach Jeff Bzdelik said, according to the Winston Salem-Journal.

Walker is a 7-footer who came out of high school with a lot of promise. He never truly lived up to that reputation, peaking this season during the 20 games he was on the floor. Walker averaged 4.2 points and 4.6 rebounds, but did rank near the top of the ACC in blocked shots, at 2.6 per game.

Walker had been suspended in early September for violation the student conduct code. He will remain in school and is expected to graduate in May.
