2018 Player Intro: Dwayne Walker

by Anthony Ray | Posted on Thursday, September 14th, 2017

6-foot-4 senior guard Dwayne Walker recently moved to the state of Arizona via Juneau High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, after having a very strong junior season in the state where he ranked among the elite prospects in the area.  Walker will now pick up his game and his high school career in the state of Arizona at local AZ Compass Prep.

Walker was rated as one of the elite prospects in the state of Wisconsin before moving to the state of Arizona.  As a junior last season, Walker averaged ridiculous numbers - pouring in 27 points and 11 rebounds per/game.  Walker will look to develop as a player and improve his college recruitment on the West Coast - a fact that should benefit him nicely, as his game fits the up-tempo style of play in the West.

Currently, Walker possesses one offer for himself from Grambling State.  He has already received a visit to his new school from Cal State Northridge head coach Reggie Theus, and also one of his assistant coaches.  Many more schools have inquired recently about Walker, so his college recruitment should really pick up for him during his senior season, heading into the late spring signing period.

Walker is a left-handed shooting guard prospect with combo-guard capabilities.  He has a nice, pure shooting stroke with a quick release that allows him to get his shot off quite well, while also being able to put the ball on the deck and make plays at a high level for himself towards the basket.  He is a strong finisher at the rim and has very good athleticism for himself - a very good attribute for a combo-guard prospect.

Walker is a good ball handler and passer, but he is at his best scoring the basketball, which he does at a high rate.  He is a strong rebounder for his size, which suits him nicely.  He is also a capable lock-down defender and has excellent lateral quickness, while also being able to play passing lanes quite well.  He is strong in the open floor where he thrives, and is a good slasher as well in the half court set.

To maximize his college recruitment, Walker will need to prove that he can play the point guard position consistently, and make players around him better in game situations.

I will look forward to watching Walker develop this high school season, and bring you any recruiting updates as they develop for him throughout the high school season.
