Ohio State Women’s basketball add transfer from Syracuse

·1 min read

The Ohio State women’s basketball program added another piece to next season’s roster earlier this week. Eboni Walker has committed to the Buckeyes and hopes to help build on the success from last year.

This will be the third stop for Walker who started her collegiate career as a Sundevil at Arizona State in 2019. She then transferred to Syracuse last season but only appeared in six games before an injury ended her year.

The Orange head coach, Quentin Hillsman resigned in early August of 2021 due to allegations of improper behavior and bullying by players. With the team in transition, Walker decided to move in a different direction once more.

Walker has career averages of 6.6 points per game and almost 5 rebounds per game. The Buckeyes return a solid core of players who made a trip to the Sweet 16 falling to No. 2 seed Texas by only three points. Ohio State should have the horses to compete for a Big Ten championship and make another deep run in the NCAA tournament.
