Rondel Walker is leaving Oklahoma State, but has decided to stay in the Big 12 Conference.
Walker entered the transfer portal last month and on Saturday TCU basketball announced on its Twitter page that he will be joining the Horned Frogs family.
Walker played in all 30 of OSU’s games this past season, making eight starts. He averaged 4.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.6 steals a game in 2021-22. His 48 steals ranked fifth in the Big 12.
Walker joined the Pokes as a true freshman during the 2020-21 season alongside his friend Cade Cunningham. The Oklahoma native went to Putnam City West High School in Oklahoma City. He was a four-star recruit in the 2020 class, ranking 104th nationally. He chose Oklahoma State over offers from Arkansas, Kansas State, Texas, Texas A&M and others.
His freshman season he averaged 7.8 points per game.
Walker became the fifth Cowboy to enter the transfer portal this offseason, while Jamie Dixon and the Horned Frogs have made their living in the transfer portal the past two seasons.
TCU landed a No. 9 seed in the 2022 NCAA Tournament and lost in the second round to No. 1 seed Arizona, who they took to overtime before falling 85-80.
