Coach Billy Donovan made the announcement Monday, saying Walker has been granted his release and ``we hope for the best for him wherever he chooses to go.''

Walker played in 25 games last season, finishing with 20 points, 17 rebounds and four blocked shots.

He's the second underclassman to leave the Gators this month. Point guard Braxton Ogbueze announced his intention to transfer last week.

Florida has one of the nation's top recruiting classes headed to Gainesville. It includes guard Kasey Hill and forward Chris Walker, both McDonald's All-America selections.

Donovan also landed Rutgers transfer Eli Carter last week. Carter chose Florida over Maryland, looking for a fresh start after coach Mike Rice was fired.
