Lewis Walker apparently is transferring to Utah.
Last semester, Walker requested a release of his scholarship to transfer to either Utah or Weber State. The release was granted, and Walker said he is back in Salt Lake City.
It’s too bad. He’s a nice guy who would have been in competition for playing time at corner or quarter (nickelback). His knee injury has healed, too. When he was a freshman, Walker and a few teammates helped out at the Foster Families Christmas party at the Blaisdell Center. They gave up one of their free days at a busy time. Nice gesture. Nice guy. He’ll be missed.
Thanks again to Jeezy for the head’s up.

Former UH cornerback Lametrius Davis said he has signed with a Los Angeles-based agent and will be training in Hawaii and Portland in preparation for UH’s Pro Day in April. Davis said he wants to maintain his weight of 190 pounds.
Davis, who rushed back from knee surgery, was admittedly not 100 percent for the season opener against USC. In that nationally televised game, with scouts unaware of his medical condition, Davis’ stock dropped. He did not feel fully comfortable until a few weeks later. He played to his 2009 level in the second half of the 2010 season.
Former UH running back Chizzy Dimude also will participate in Pro Day. He will train in Hawaii while attending UH’s spring semester.
