Texas A&M vs. Missouri men's basketball

Texas A&M's Jay Jay Chandler (0) and John Walker III (24) try to prevent Missouri's Jordan Geist (15) from passing the ball in the first half Saturday at Reed Arena.

Texas A&M sophomore forward John Walker III will transfer from Aggieland, according to a tweet from Walker on Monday.

“I’ll never forget what this university has done for me,” Walker said in the tweet.

As a freshman, the Fort Bend Marshall alumnus saw action in 30 games for the Aggies, averaging 3.2 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. The high mark of his short stint with the Aggies was an 11-point performance against UC Irvine on Nov. 19.

Walker is the third Aggie who announced he was leaving the program since the firing of former head coach Billy Kennedy and hiring of Buzz Williams from Virginia Tech. Guard Admon Gilder previously announced his transfer to Gonzaga, and Savion Flagg decided to leave early for the NBA Draft. He has not hired an agent, leaving the option open to return.
