Carver High School head basketball coach James Jackson described Walton's overall game.

"He is still young in a lot of areas but what he does is give us a lot of length at his position," said Jackson. "He can handle the ball pretty well and he can shoot the ball extremely well. We are looking for better defense than he did last year. I have a great group of seniors that I feel can push him to be the player that he can be."

Walton also described his game.

"I am more of a slasher who can get to the hole," said Walton. "I can stop and make the three-point shot. I like to get my teammates involved.

"Defensively, I am a pretty good on-ball defender but I'm more of a help side defender."

According to Jackson, schools throughout the south are interested in the talented guard.

"Right now, a lot of the SEC and ACC schools have jumped in on him," said Jackson. "He has offers from Mississippi State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Alabama. And I think that Auburn is close to offering."
