(NEW YORK) — The third-ranked Florida Gators should be getting even better.
ESPN.com’s 12th-ranked player in the class of 2013, Chris Walker, has been declared eligible to play by the NCAA and will make his college debut Tuesday versus Missouri.
The 6-foot-11 Walker has been investigated by the NCAA to determine his eligibility.
The NCAA said in a statement it found Walker received benefits from five people, including $270 from two agents. Walker will have to pay back the money he received from the agents to a charity and serve 80 hours of community service as restitution.
