    To clarify, Chris Walker has cleared key hurdle In getting in UF. Still has some things to go through. #Gators

    I think what Walker does for this team is raise its ceiling. We've done good work with frontlines less talented than Young-Yeguete-Prather-Harris-Finney-Smith. You'll happily go into conference play with that group.

    Walker adds a measure of talent and athleticism even that group lacks, the ability to do a series of breathtaking things on both ends of the court in quick succession (granted, Pat's had those moments as well). You pretty much know who all of these guys are, though there's certainly upside there, especially with Finney-Smith and Harris. Walker provides that "Anything can happen" element that might be able to pull a very good team to a different level.

    Of course, two of those guys are suspended and the other is still recovering from off-season surgery, so I might want to cool it a bit.

    Anyone actually think Coach D is putting Walker out there after 1 or 2 practices?

    Not happening.

    Of course you would put him out there even if it is for 5-8 minutes. It's not like as soon as he is eligible you have to start him and play him 30 minutes.
