Chris Walker Intends To Enter NBA Draft After One Season At Florida
Chris Walker fully intends to enter the NBA draft after one year at Florida.
“Coach (Billy Donovan) said where my skill level is, if that's what I want I should go for it,” said Walker, who has committed to the Gators' 2013 recruiting class. “What I keep hearing is that I'm a potential lottery pick. But I'm not satisfied.”
Donovan believes the 6-foot-9 Walker can play small forward or power forward at the college level.
“I can shoot 3s now,” Walker explained. “I can finesse you. I can dunk on you. I can guard anything, and I'm rebounding better. When I block shots I catch the ball. I can post you up with my back to the basket and hit you with a post move. Or I can face you up and use my quickness to blow by you.
“NBA draft people have said I'm like a sick mix of Kevin Garnett and Perry Jones III.”
