Strong start for Walton
One of the top remaining class of 2015 prospects is K.J. Walton. The Brownsburg (Ind.) product didn’t sign with anybody during the early signing period, and now he is off to an excellent start as a senior. In a season opening win, Walton went for 33 points and was a dominant force at 6-foot-3. As he normally does, Walton got to the foul line and attacked the rim well, but also he was knocking down shots. About his performance, Walton said, “I just stayed aggressive and took what the defense gave me and played off of that.” Now Walton has some big goals for himself and his team as the season goes along. “Expectations first and foremost are to win the state championship, and after that I just want myself and the team to play hard every game,” noted Walton. “If we play hard and lose, I can accept that, but I can’t accept us not playing hard.” On the recruiting trail things are still moving at a slow pace for Walton, but a few schools are showing him attention. “Recruiting wise Georgia Tech, Xavier, and Minnesota are the ones recruiting me the hardest, and Indiana still a little bit,” said Walton. At the moment Walton is taking things slowly and is in no hurry to make a decision, but he does know what he is looking for in a school. “I am just looking for the best fit and the highest level,” said Walton. “How far away it is really doesn’t matter to me or anything like that.” Walton is currently viewed as the No. 29 shooting guard and the No. 97 player overall in the class of 2015.
