CJ Walker just got done starting for a Florida State team that went to the Elite Eight. Now, he's leaving Tallahassee.

Walker averaged eight points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.4 assists for the Seminoles this season. He played over 23 minutes per game in Leonard Hamilton's deep rotation.

Minutes ago, Walker took to Twitter to announce his decision. He made what had been reported earlier in the day official.

Walker's role increased greatly from his freshman to sophomore year at Florida State. In 2016-17, he averaged 4.9 points in 12.5 minutes per game.

CJ Walker is a native of Indianapolis. He committed to FSU from Arsenal Technical High School.

Walker's hometown Butler Bulldogs were among his other suitors. Florida State also beat out Illinois, Purdue, and a few other Big Ten schools.

As a recruit, CJ Walker was a four-star recruit.

247Sports ranked him as the No. 113 player overall. He was the No. 24 point guard in the class of 2016, and the fourth-ranked player from Indiana.

As of now, it is unclear whether he will look for a move closer to home, or if he will be open to more options. Since he just finished up his sophomore season, he will have to sit out a season before playing again in 2019-20.

Florida State's season came to an end on Saturday in the 58-54 Elite Eight loss to Michigan. He was held to two points in that one.
