Jim Larranaga and the Miami Hurricanes basketball team just rattled the college basketball universe in landing their most highly touted recruit in program history in the form of guard Lonnie Walker.
The five-star prospect is ranked among the Top 21 players of the 2017 class by all the major recruiting sites and announced the news on Twitter this morning, noting he feels it’s the best move for him “on and off the court.”
