Chris Walker is frustrated.
Billy Donovan is frustrated.
Now, it’s clear that Florida students are frustrated, too, with the NCAA’s handling of freshman forward Chris Walker’s eligibility.
In mid-December, Walker was officially accepted into Florida, but he hasn’t been granted eligibility by the NCAA, yet.
The NCAA is continuing to review Walker’s academic eligibility before making a ruling on whether he will be eligible or not. Since arriving on campus a month ago, Walker has only been allowed to practice with the team.
Considering Florida’s been an injury-riddled team for much of the year, having a talent like Walker in practice as another body certainly helps, but the Gators obviously need him on the floor in games. At the very least, he is growing as a player and becoming game-ready.
