Redshirt-sophomore running back Grant Walker announced on his Twitter Friday his intentions to enter the transfer portal.

“You all took me in from day 1 and have not only become great teammates, but Brothers/Best Friends as well,” Walker said in the tweet. “After much thought and prayer with my family I’ve decided that I will be entering my name into the transfer portal with 3 years of eligibility left.”

The former three-star from Ellenwood, Georgia played against South Carolina State and Coastal Carolina, finishing with seven carries for 17 yards in 2018.

Walker announces his transfership a week after fellow running back Andrew Cunningham announced he was transferring.

“We want to wish Grant a successful career in whatever he chooses and desires,” Head Coach Chad Lunsford said in an email.

After spring practice, Walker was one of nine running backs on the 2019 roster. Walker had 11 carries for 35 yards in the spring game.

With departures of Walker and Cunningham, redshirt-sophomores Matt LaRoche and Logan Wright are expected to be the Eagles’ top running backs.
