The stock of EJ Walker continues to soar as he climbs up the 2025 national rankings. In just the last few days, he has picked up a pair of high major offers. West Virginia offered the 6’8” wing of Lloyd Memorial High School (KY) and Brad Beal Elite during a visit this past weekend and then Purdue also offered him shortly afterwards.  

When talking about his two newest offers, Walker said “It felt great to get two power five offers this early. I have been working really had on the court and in the classroom. My parents and I were really happy. It’s a blessing but now I have to work even harder.” 

“The West Virginia visit was incredible,” Walker told us about his recent trip to Morgantown. “I got to see WVU volleyball catch a win, spent a lot of time with Coach Eilert and Coach Huggins…I got to meet the rest of the staff and players. What stood out the most was the atmosphere, from coaching staff, to players, to fans. It was awesome. And of course, meeting Coaching Huggins was super chill.” 

The newest offer for Walker was from Purdue which came after Matt Painter visited him for an open gym. “Coach Painter is a great guy and really down to earth. They care about developing their players for basketball and for life after ball. The coaching staff makes you feel like home.”

As well to the two new offers, Walker also has a few other scholarships offers which he discussed. For Toledo, he likes their campus and assistant coach Jeff Massey. “I really like the coaching staff. Their ability to develop their players,” he said about Northern Kentucky. When speaking about Ohio University, he said “Coach (Jeff) Boals is great, he really likes to build relationships with his players. The campus is really nice.”

The recruitment calendar is just heating up for Walker this fall. Indiana is planning on attending a workout this week and he will be visiting there soon. He will also be making visits to both Illinois and Illinois State in October. Some other schools that have been in contact or have been to see him at a workout recently include Dayton, Michigan State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Xavier.
