The elite wing plays for Atlanta Xpress on the Under Armour Association Circuit and plays at Jonesboro High School in Georgia.
In a sitdown interview at the camp with Evan Daniels of Scout.com, Walker mentioned Indiana, North Carolina State, Cal and USC as some of the schools who have most recently become involved in his recruitment.
Two other schools mentioned prominently by Walker were Maryland and Florida State.
He’s a finalist for the USA Basketball U18 team that will begin training next week in Houston, Texas.
Walker was the leading scorer this past spring on the Under Armour Association circuit at 20.7 point per game. He also averaged 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.
