Connecticut has called all media for a press conference this week with 6-foot-1 guard to announce his objective to go into the draft.
The Bronx native Walker, who led UConn to its third national championship, is projected as a first-round NBA draft pick and coach Jim Calhoun has said he has counseled Walker to abstain from his senior season.

The talented point guard averaged almost 24 points and five dimes per game in leading UConn to a 32-9 record, including an 11-0 run through March Madness. The guy was so valuable for his team that he was responsible for 45% of his team’s points.
Nevertheless, with an NBA lockout looming, Walker had left his options open. “It would be a lot of fun if I came back,” he said last week. “These guys are my brothers and I love them. So, if I have an opportunity to come back, it would be special.” Sports scores.
