Louisville’s Zyanna Walker To Transfer to Kansas State

Kansas State Women's Basketball Coach Jeff Mittie

Former Louisville guard Zyanna Walker has committed to transfer to Kansas State, she announced via her Instagram account on Wednesday.

Walker is the first transfer to join the Wildcats this offseason. She was at Louisville last season as a freshman but rarely play.


Her statement “We home with it!” is a reference to the fact that she’s from Wichita, Kan.

Before she joined Louisville last season, Walker was the Gatorade Kansas Women’s Player of the Year while playing at Heights High School. With Heights she averaged 25.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 5.1 steals per game. She had more than 30 Division I offers before she signed with Louisville.

Kansas State has not officially announced the transfer. The window to sign a scholarship with all Division I teams is open.

Walker joins a Wildcat team that won 19 games last season and reached the third round of the Women’s NIT. They did so without All-Big 12 First Team center Ayoka Lee, who missed the entire season after knee surgery.

Without her, the Wildcats took in former Oklahoma guard Gabby Gregory, who will return as the Big 12’s leading scorer from last season as she averaged 18.5 points per game and was named All-Big 12 First Team.

Along with Gregory are three Wildcats that played with Lee the season before and enter their junior season as projected starters — guards Serena Sundell, Brylee Glenn and Jaelyn Glenn.  

Sundell was 11th in the Big 12 in scoring at 13.9 points and was one of the league’s best point guards. Jaleyn Glenn averaged 11.3 points and led the Big 12 with 2.5 steals.
