Florida State defensive end Demarcus Walker announced via Twitter that he will return for his senior season. Walker led the Seminoles in nearly every defensive category, and became the first Florida State defensive end since Bjorn Werner in 2012 to register double digit sacks. Walker was named second team All-ACC for the 2015 season, and would bolster a young, but talented defensive line.
Walker issued this statement to Seminoles.com.
“After talking with my family and Coach Fisher I have decided to return to Florida State for my senior year,” Walker said. “I made great strides during my junior season and I hope to carry that on to my senior year. I want to end my career here like I started it in 2013 and with the team we having returning I feel we have the opportunity to have a really special season. I look forward to providing leadership to help this team continue to grow and succeed.”
Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher was also pleased with Walker's decision.
“I’m very excited that Demarcus is going to return for his senior season,” Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said. “This is a great decision for Demarcus because as he continues to develop, he can become one of the best players in college football. He had an outstanding season for us this past year and is a tremendous leader. We are thrilled that he is returning to Florida State.”
