The big preps news yesterday came when high school senior Bill Walker, who plays (well, played) alongside O.J. Mayo in Ohio and is considered one of the top recruits around, was ruled ineligible for the upcoming high school season. Word traveled fast on this one — by the time Kevin Love and his dad and brother rolled through our office yesterday in the afternoon, they’d already heard about it.
What happens now? Who knows? I’ve heard he could stay and challenge the ruling, he could go to the NBA next season (he’s already 19, apparently), I’ve heard he could go to Europe…who knows?
