Then he went back.
Walker, a 6-foot-8, 205-pound Northfield Mount Hermon (Mass.) post-grad who spent his high school days playing at Christ the King (N.Y.), was active around the basket – scoring the majority of his point in the paint and from the foul line.
``I feel that I'm a mismatch guy," Walker said before heading back to the infirmary.
``It's been so rocky lately," Walker said.
Walker has put up monster games against a wide variety of competition. He had 18 points and 11 boards in a loss to Notre Dame, 27 points and 10 rebounds in a victory against Exeter and 23 points and 13 boards in a setback to New Hampton.
``He's done it against everybody," said NMH associate head coach John Carroll. "I think he can play in the A-10 or possibly the Big East."
Thus far, there haven't been a lot of schools to have come through the mountains at Northfield Mount Hermon, but those who have, according to Carroll, have offered Walker.
Carroll said that Loyola (Md.) and Delaware both have scholarship offers on the table.
``If you need a 6-8 guy who's skilled and can do a lot of things," Carroll said. "Adam's your guy. He can step away from the basket, creates and finishes, and is strong."
``I would like to have the option of playing at the highest level," added Walker. "I'm not sure if it would be a fit for me or not. Sometimes I think I can play at the highest level and sometimes I don't."
