Chris Walker, ESPN’s No. 7 senior in the Class of 2013, committed to Florida early Sunday morning, elevating the Gators’ recruiting class to the No. 1 ranking in the nation.
Walker’s commitment to Florida is unique. By picking the Gators over Louisville and Kansas — this had been trending Florida’s way all month — Walker pledged to resume a playing relationship with Kasey Hill (Eustis, Fla./Montverde), his travel teammate on Florida Elite.
