The Arizona Sun Devils have lost out on a talented prospect in the 2020 recruiting class. Kyree Walker has decided to decommit from Arizona State and reopen his recruiting process. It is rare for five-star athletes to commit this early in the process and even more rare for them to decommit from the team they selected that early. The talented forward is now leaning toward in-state PAC-12 rival Arizona. The Sun Devils are not expected to pursue Walker further, so it seems highly unlikely he returns there.
The forward is expected to lean heavily toward the Arizona Wildcats who already have a talented 2019 class coming in. The Wildcats are not the only team in the running, and Walker will have well over a year to make a decision about where he will play college basketball. Several top schools like Kentucky and North Carolina will also be fighting to convince the young forward to commit to their school.
There’s a possibility that 2020 five-star Kyree Walker is reopening his recruitment, sources tell Stockrisers.
Walker is the 10th ranked prospect in the country. Committed to Arizona State in June of 2017.

Walker’s desire to reopen his recruitment became obvious when he retweeted Jake Weingarten on a rumor that he may indeed reopen his recruitment. The talented forward Kyree Walker is listed at 6’5″ and 200 pounds. He could provide a talented piece for whichever team ends up landing him. The Arizona Wildcats landing Walker would put to rest any issues with a weak 2018 recruiting class. The Wildcats 2019 class is already star-studded and Walker would move 2020 in a very positive direction. The scandal involving Sean Miller and Deandre Ayton seems to be firmly in the rearview mirror. Walker has a major decision to make about his basketball future.
