Former four-star power forward, and top 100 recruit in the class of 2020 Corey Walker Jr announced his intentions to transfer to USF men’s basketball via instagram.

Walker makes the ninth addition to the progrum that saw nine players leave after the season end in mid March.

Originally from Bishop Snyder High School in Jacksonville, Florida, Corey went to prep school at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia where he averaged 15.2 points and eight rebounds per game and led them to a 36-4 record. His mark lead him to become the number five player in the state of Virginia before committing to play for the University of Tennessee.

Walker did not play much for the Volunteers during his time in Knoxville, as a preseason injury as well as COVID-19 played a huge factor in sidelining him early in the season.

With the addition of Corey Walker Jr, USF men’s basketball replaced the eight players who played during the COVID impacted 2020-2021 season but departed once the season had ended. The progrum also lost Zac Dawson during all the reshuffling, who hadn’t played since the 2019 season.

The list of additions is below:

JuCo Triton College Forward D.J. Patrick

University of Denver Forward Sam Hines Jr

George Mason Guard Javon Greene

UNC-Wilmington Guard Jake Boggs

ETSU/Maryland Guard Serrel Smith Jr

University of New Mexico Center Bayron Matos

Windermere High School Guard Trey Moss

South Carolina PF Jalyn McCreary
