What was first reported by Seawolves Nation has now been confirmed by Stony Brook Athletics: Ahmad Walker is back.

The six-foot-four-inch 175-pound wing will transfer back to Stony Brook University in the fall. Walker spent two years as a Seawolf before transferring to Barton Community College of the National Junior College Athletic Association last June.

Walker redshirted his first year at Stony Brook during the 2012-2013 season before impressing in his freshman campaign, starting in all but three games of the 2013-2014 season.

He feasted defensively and was a standout athlete, able to leap among the trees and finish through traffic. At Barton, Walker averaged 20.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game on 51.5 percent shooting from the field in 27 games. A year removed from Division I basketball, Walker will be competing for playing time with sophomore guards Roland Nyama, Bryan Sekunda, Deshaun Thrower and junior Kameron Mitchell.

Walker now returns to secure the last scholarship spot on the Seawolves roster, which is available thanks to junior forward Scott King and sophomore forward Chris Braley signing their release letters last month.

It is still unclear why Walker originally transferred out of Stony Brook after the 2013-2014 season.
