Walker recently completed her undergraduate degree from WMU with a major in political science and minor in communications. At Tennessee, she intends on pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration on entrepreneurship and management. After college, she hopes to play professionally overseas – following in the footsteps of her father, Jarvis Walker – with the desire to coach one day and go to law school.

Now, she’s getting her shot at big-time women’s college basketball. “You know, as like a little girl you always dream of it – being on TV, like, ‘I want to be there,’” Walker said. “It never was my intent to leave Western or anything like that, but since I did and I had an opportunity (to be recruited by top programs) and now that I’m going to one, it’s definitely … I don’t even know how to put it into words. It’s almost a surreal feeling.”
