  • Scout’s Notes:

    01/24/15: "Walker Jr. accelerates like a pro.  His shooting touch needs to improve, but the slashing ability hints at greatness.  Walker Jr. is perfecting the shot off the dribble.  Quickness and explosiveness are the foundation of Walker’s vibrant game.  His leaping ability and body control midflight is scary." -Andrew Force

    01/30/14: "Walker is a high-flying finisher who punishes opponents in the lane. His jumper has shown steady progression and his aggressive approach allows him to turn digits in the scoring column quickly. He's one of the top freshmen nationally in the 2017 class but must his perimeter skills must continue to evolve." -Spencer Pulliam
