GAINESVILLE, Fla. -

Walker announced Wednesday via Twitter that he will stay in college for another season, a decision that could make the Gators a contender again in 2015.
   
"This year has been a great one, and I'm happy to say I will be joining the gatornation again for one more year!," Walker posted.
   
The 6-foot-10 Walker is widely considered a first-round pick when he enters the NBA draft. Walker missed the first three months of last season while waiting to be cleared by the NCAA. He made his collegiate debut on Feb. 4, played in 18 games and averaged 1.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in 4.8 minutes while playing behind Patric Young, Will Yeguete and Dorian Finney-Smith.
