With two incoming freshmen (thus far) and five scholarships open for 2018, filling roster spots with experienced players is paramount. And it seems Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton is in the midst of a juggling act to do just that.
Less than two days after USC Upstate graduate transfer guard Mike Cunningham locked in a visit date to Stillwater, Samford grad transfer Wyatt Walker, a 6-foot-9 center, followed suit. Jeff Borzello of ESPN reported the news, adding that Walker, a hot commodity on the transfer market given his ability to score, is also planning visits to NC State and Wisconsin.
Samford grad transfer Wyatt Walker has set visits to his final three schools:
• NC State (4/13)
• Wisconsin (4/20)
• Oklahoma State (4/27)
12.9 PPG, 9.7 RPG in 2016-17. Two years of eligibility left.

Walker is a unique case of a grad transfer, as he comes with two years of eligibility, rather than one, after missing all but two games of last season due to injury. He would give OSU a nice stopgap to replace the loss of Mitch Solomon and Yankuba Sima as freshmen Yor Anei and Duncan Demuth come into their own over the next two years.
