Tide host basketball visitor 

February, 22, 2012
The Alabama football team hosted a large group of prospects for the Crimson Tide’s junior day on Feb. 18, but it was the UA basketball team that hosted the lone official visitor of the weekend, DeVon Walker.

Walker, a 6-foot-6, 188-pound wing player from Winter Haven, Fla., made the trip to Tuscaloosa and watched as Alabama defeated Tennessee, 62-50, in Coleman Coliseum.

“The visit went really well,” Walker said. “I enjoyed it. The atmosphere, the fans are die-hard fans at Alabama. I love the players I was with. I love the coaching staff. All in all, it was just a great visit.
