One player who definitely drew a crowd on night one at the adidas Gauntlet was Antwan Walker. Currently a member of the 2016 class, Walker could be one of the best available prospects on the board. With head coaches looking on, Walker had a good showing.
While the numbers weren’t eye popping on night one for Walker, 12 points and 5 rebounds, how he got things done was very impressive. The 6-foot-7 power forward has long arms, high level athleticism, and an improving skill set.
After being the leader on the undefeated HD Woodson squad this past season, Walker has turned his game up even another notch lately. He hit a pair of three pointers tonight, and showed why more and more high-major schools are checking in on him.
Head coaches such as John Thompson III of Georgetown and Chris Mack of Xavier were in attendance watching and assistants from South Carolina, Marquette, and Arkansas were also seen watching Walker.
Recently Walker took a visit to Georgetown which he described as a good trip, and he indicated that the Hoyas feel he would fit into their system and they want to take him as a member of the 2016 class or the 2017 class.
At the moment Walker is still hoping to be a member of the 2016 class and says his core GPA is good enough to qualify, but he is waiting on getting a corresponding SAT score. If he does qualify look for Jackson to enroll as a member of the 2016 class and be one of the hottest commodities over the next month.
If he has to go to prep school and is a member of the 2017 class, Walker should get a ton of high-major interest and might be one of the top prospects in the prep ranks.
