Danny Walker has given a verbal commitment to play college golf for Virginia. Walker, of Bradenton, Fla., also made unofficial visits to Central Florida, North Florida and Notre Dame, and he considered Illinois.
“I chose the University of Virginia because of the balance between golf and academics,” Walker said. “I also really like the campus as well as the practice facilities. Coach (Bowen) Sargent is very passionate, with a lot of experience as a coach and player.”
Walker is a junior at Lake Ranch High School, and helped his team to the 2A state championship title the past two years. He won the individual state championship as a freshman in 2010.
Walker was an honorable-mention AJGA Rolex All-American in 2012, the same year he tied for second at the Western Junior.
