During 2025 G EJ Walker’s unofficial visit to West Virginia, the Kentucky native received an offer from the coaching staff. Walker was on WVU’s campus on Saturday.
Walker announced his offer on social media.
“I’m excited and blessed to announce after a great time and conversation with Bob Huggins and staff I’ve received an offer to play at West Virginia,” Walker wrote.
Walker (6-foot-8, 220 pounds) has picked up offers from Duquesne, Northern Kentucky, Ohio, Stony Brook, Toledo and Youngstown State. Walker’s recruitment has picked up rapidly over the past couple of months as the rising sophomore is gaining attention from high major programs. Walker has visited Cincinnati, Miami (OH), Purdue, Ohio State and Xavier.
Prior to his visit, Walker was excited to check out the campus and talk to the coaching staff.
“I am looking forward to checking out campus, meeting the staff and players, but I’m really excited to get a chance to talk with coach Huggins! He’s a legend,” Walker told WV Sports Now earlier this month.

The coaching staff hosted him, as well as Jesse McCulloch and Colin White. Now they’re extending an official offer for Walker to play at West Virginia.
