Miami (FL) transfer Anthony Walker is now on Indiana’s campus, he announced Monday on social media.

The 6-foot-9 forward committed to Indiana on April 29.

Walker spent the majority of the summer finishing up academic requirements before arriving on campus today. This week is the final week of Indiana’s eight-week off-season program.

The Baltimore, Maryland native appeared in all 37 games last season for the Hurricanes. Miami reached the Final Four last season and beat Indiana in the second round of the 2023 NCAA tournament at MVP Arena in Albany, New York.

Walker averaged 2.8 points and 1.2 rebounds last season for Miami and has one season of eligibility remaining.

Over his 125-game college career, Walker has averaged 4.9 points and 2.5 rebounds. He’s a career 43.2 percent shooter from the field and a 20.6 percent 3-point shooter.

He played in all five games for Miami in their NCAA tournament run. In Miami’s 85-69 win against the Hoosiers, Walker scored four points and grabbed two rebounds in 13 minutes off the bench. He scored seven points in Miami’s Sweet Sixteen win against top-seeded Houston in Kansas City.

A member of the 2019 recruiting class out of high school, Walker finished his high school career at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

Here’s the full release IU issued in May announcing Walker’s addition to the program:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – IU men’s basketball coach Mike Woodson has announced that Anthony Walker, a 6-9, 215 lb., forward who played for the University of Miami for four seasons will join the program as a graduate transfer and use his final season of eligibility playing for the Hoosiers. He competed in 125 games in his four seasons at Miami averaging 15.1 minutes, 4.9 points, and 2.5 rebounds per game. He shot 51.0% (210-of-412) from inside the arc and had 22 games scoring in double digits. His best season was his sophomore year when he started 16 times and averaged 9.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.

Miami advanced to the Final Four this past season and tied for the ACC regular season championship. IU faced Walker in the NCAA Tournament this year with the Baltimore native posting four points and two boards in nine minutes of action. In 2021-22, the Hurricanes advanced to the Elite Eight.

He graduated from Brewster Academy (N.H.) and helped them win the National Prep Championships and a region championship, as well as reach the NEPSAC AAA title game, during his lone year with the team. He led Perry Hall (Md.) to 4A state crowns, the first two in school history, as a junior and sophomore. In his junior year, he made a basket at the buzzer to send his squad to the state title game. He attended Hope Academy (Ga.) as a freshman and did not play basketball.

He is the son of Anthony Walker, Jr. and Towanda Hayes and has a younger brother, Darius. He graduated with a degree in sociology. He was born February 9, 2001.


“Anthony has been a winner at the high school level and in college and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our program,” said IU Coach Mike Woodson. “He is a veteran player who is very athletic and has great length. He’s very active on the defensive end and we love his competitiveness.”
