The final member of the Indiana basketball 2023 class is expected to arrive in Bloomington this weekend.

Miami (Fla.) forward transfer Anthony Walker announced on his instagram story that he will be arriving on campus later this weekend. The other members, both high school signees and transfers, arrived on campus in early June.

Last season, Walker averaged 2.8 points and 1.2 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game. He is an athletic forward who was used in spot minutes off of the bench for the Hurricanes.

In 125 games over four seasons at Miami he averaged 15.1 minutes, 4.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. His best season was his sophomore year when he started 16 times and averaged 9.6 points and 4.7 rebounds.

“Anthony has been a winner at the high school level and in college and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our program,” Indiana basketball head coach Mike Woodson said. “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.”

He had four points and two rebounds in Miami’s Round of 32 win over Indiana in the NCAA Tournament.

Walker is one of three incoming transfers for Indiana this season, joining Oregon center Kel’el Ware and Ball State forward Payton Sparks.

Walker has one year of eligibility remaining. He was ranked as the No. 228 player in the 2019 class in the 247Sports composite rankings.
