Kansas may be in the running for Andre Walker, a 6-7, 220-pound power forward, who has graduated from Vanderbilt University and decided to play at another school his senior season.
The former Brewster Academy player from Flossmoor, Ill., this week will set up some campus visits, according to a Twitter post from a Brewster coach. The tweet says Walker is considering KU, Northwestern, Xavier and Wichita State.
Walker averaged 3.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists while logging 17.7 minutes a game for Vandy his junior season. He red-shirted the 2008-09 season after tearing his right ACL and has had some injury problems since. He has one year of eligibility remaining. He does not have to sit out a year after transferring, since he’s already graduated.
KU is still hopeful of landing prize prospect DeAndre Daniels, a 6-8 senior forward from IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. Daniels, who has been silent through most of the recruiting process, has a list of KU, Texas, Oregon, San Diego State and Oklahoma State. UConn also has been trying to get in the mix.
