Freshman Demetrius Walker, who once graced the cover of Sports Illustrated as the nation's best eighth-grade player, has received his scholarship release from Arizona State and is scheduled to visit to New Mexico this weekend, a source close to the situation told me.
A 6-foot-2, 195-pound guard, Walker showed flashes of his scoring ability while averaging 4 points and 10.5 minutes in 23 games for the Sun Devils, but was limited in playing time late in the season.
Walker could be a good fit for New Mexico, as he could sit out a year due to transfer rules while guard Dairese Gary plays his senior season.
Here's the latest edition of the West Coast transfers list:
Arizona: D.J. Shumpert
Arizona State: Demetrius Walker, Taylor Rohde, Brandon Thompson
Cal: D.J. Seeley
Fresno State: Brandon Sperling
Montana State: Austin Brown
