One of the top transfers in the country is nearing closer to his decision. On Wednesday, the six finalists for Northeastern point guard Tyson Walker were revealed.

Walker entered the transfer portal earlier this month. He's coming off a tremendous 2020-21 season, where he averaged 18.8 points and 4.8 assists per game. He also proved that he's a two-way star, winning CAA Defensive Player of the Year.

Jeff Goodman of Stadium announced that Walker's six finalists are Kansas, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Texas and Vanderbilt.

Walker plans on making his decision by this weekend.

All six programs on Walker's list would love to get their hands on the star guard - especially since he has multiple years of eligibility remaining.

Kansas and Michigan State could lose multiple players to the NBA this offseason, but landing a marquee transfer like Walker would soften that blow.

On the other hand, we shouldn't rule out Maryland, Miami, Texas or Vanderbilt. They're all Power Five programs capable of providing Walker a chance to be the top playmaker on the roster.

We'll find out where Walker will resume his college career this weekend.
