Andre Walker Heading to Kansas?

That's the rumor picked up being pedaled on CBSSport.com's Eye on Basketball Blog by Eric Angevine. The story was first reported by KUSports.com's Gary Debore:
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.
Needless to say, if this happens, there will be a lot of Commodore fans disappointed at the way Walker's career ended, but didn't finish, at Vanderbilt.
