Walker considered many schools before deciding to skip college, as he held numerous scholarship offers for himself, including offers from Kansas, Oregon, Florida, UCLA, Memphis, Arizona State, California, Texas, Arkansas, LSU, Nevada, Illinois, Oklahoma and Grand Canyon, just to name a few schools. Walker had also previously given an early verbal commitment to to the Arizona State Sun Devils as a freshman, before deciding to re-open his college recruitment almost two years ago.
Walker traveled his last two spring and summers with his club program, the heavily Adidas sponsored Dream Vision club program. Walker put on a show with his electric style of play, size, strength and overall experience and feel for the game.
Walker is among the elite overall prospects in America's 2020 Class, and has been since he was a youngster. Walker chose to skip his senior season this year and sit out in preparation for next year. Regarded by most scouting services as a Top-20 national prospect in the class, since he was a middle-school prospect, Walker transferred from Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, California, to transfer to Hillcrest Prep Academy in Phoenix as a freshman, where he played (3) seasons.
Walker will join Dream City Christian Prep 6-foot-7 senior wing Marjon Beauchamp at Chameleon BX next year also, as both elite prospects look to enter the 2021 NBA Draft. The game has definitely changed.

Walker is among the elite overall prospects in America's 2020 Class - regarded by most as a Top-20 national prospect in the class. Walker is a big-time talent that is physically very strong and has very good athleticism. He has a nice handle of the basketball and a strong feel for the game, which allows him to make plays off the dribble and finish strong at the rim, while also being able to set up his teammates for scoring opportunities. He is a good penetrator and a very strong finisher at the rim. He has a good shooting stroke with range on his shot, and is able to make plays off the dribble to make plays for himself and others. He is capable of making players around him better, as a result. Very good in transition and in the open floor, and is a good slasher. A good rebounder as a result of his sheer size from the guard position, although I would like to see him concentrate on this area of his game more. A good one-on-one defender with good lateral quickness. Has a very bright future ahead of him. An excellent NBA prospect for the future.
