Chris Walker, once a heralded prospect and potential one-and-done player, is leaving Florida, sources confirmed to SNY.tv.

It remains unclear if he will try to transfer or play professionally somewhere.

“I’m definitely hearing that he’s leaving,” one source said, adding he had heard the news earlier this week. “He needs to transfer. I don’t think he might get drafted at this point.”

Evan Daniels of Scout.com first reported that the 6-foot-10 sophomore was leaving Florida.

A Florida spokesman said by phone the school would have no official comment until head coach Billy Donovan, who is out recruiting, had a chance to meet with Walker.

Walker averaged just 4.7 points and 3.5 rebounds last season.

In April of 2014, Walker was projected as the No. 10 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com. Now he’s listed as the No. 20 sophomore and is not in any of the site’s mock drafts.

“He’s a long way from being a productive NBA player,” one NBA scout told SNY.tv. “Possible second-rounder who will spend time in the D-League next year if he puts his name in the draft.”
