Walker appeared in two games for LSU as a true freshman, completing 2-of-4 passes for 7 yards and rushing for 33 yards on six carries. He saw action in the Tigers' wins over Southern and Purdue, the latter coming in the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl on Jan. 2.

At Ole Miss, he will presumably begin 2023 as the backup to Jaxson Dart, with the opportunity to earn more playing time down the road.
