Winter Haven senior basketball standout DeVon Walker will sign with the University of Florida on Friday afternoon, his dad told The Lakeland Ledger on Thursday.

Walker, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, helped led his team to the Class 6A state semifinals while leadning the county in scoring.

He had offers from Alabama, Florida, Connecticut, Central Florida and Kansas State but narrowed his decision to Alabama and Florida in the last few weeks.

Florida made a late push for Walker.
