Earlier today, we ran a piece about how the 2018-2019 FSU basketball team might look. And just hours later, we have one answer to that question: a little different at the point guard spot.

You could say that the writing was on the Walker. A native of Indianapolis, IN, C.J. Walker started as the Seminole 1 for the vast majority of the season, but his role diminished as Trent Forrest blossomed into arguably the team’s top player over the season’s final couple of months. Now, Florida State athletics has announced Walker’s intent to transfer. ’Nole head coach Leonard Hamilton had this to say about Walker’s departure: “We wish CJ and his family the best of luck and future success. We appreciate how hard CJ has worked and his contributions to the success of our program in the last two seasons.”

Walker had just completed his second year in Tallahassee, appearing in 35 games and averaging 8 points and 2.4 assists.
