Big 12 Awards Walker A Medical Redshirt For '06-'07

By  | 

MANHATTAN, KS -- The Big 12 Conference has awarded a medical redshirt to Kansas State forward Bill Walker. Walker played just six games last season due to an injury.

The 6-foot-6 freshman suffered a season-ending knee injury January sixth in a loss at Texas A&M. Walker had surgery on his knee in January, and the team says he has almost completely recovered.

Before the injury, Walker averaged eleven points and four rebounds a game.

He was the most highly sought freshman ever to play for the Wildcats.

Kansas State was 23-and-12 last season and 10-6 in the Big 12.
