Demetrius Walker found a new basketball home.  The former Lobo will play for Grand Canyon University this season.

Walker spent the past three years at the University of New Mexico.  He was kicked off the team near the end of the season.  Walker played in 23 games with UNM last year averaging five points a night.

"We are excited to have a player of Demetrius' ability that has played at both New Mexico and Arizona State," said Grand Canyon head coach Dan Majerle in a released statement. "It is good to have him here at GCU, as he brings with him a lot of experience and can score the basketball. He will be big for our team next season having a guy that we can go to. "

Walker graduated from New Mexico in May of 2013 and will pursue his graduate degree at Grand Canyon.  GCU will come to the Pit this season to play the Lobos in November.
