Nike MDC: Ty Walker Q&A

Ty Walker, who plays with Boo Williams on the circuit, spoke with DeaconSports following one of his pool play games at the Nike Memorial Day Classic. The 7-footer talked about playing with Boo, Ed Davis and why he chose to be a Demon Deacon.

How has it been playing with Boo Williams?

Every since I joined Boo he's treated me like his own son really. If I make one mistake or a couple of mistakes in a row he'll take me out for two quarters. It's fine - I just have to learn how to adjust to it.

Do you feel like you're improving by playing with Boo Williams?

It's been a good experience. I've been able to play against the best competition playing in all of these good tournaments and playing with Ed.

There is a lot of talent on Boo Williams and you're playing alongside a top notch power forward in Ed Davis…what's it like playing with him?

I think it is because he has such a unique style of play and everything. It's really hard to guard him. I feel as if that is a big upside for our team.

How do you think that you have played throughout the spring?

I feel as though I've gotten a little bit stronger but I feel as if I have a long ways to go. I feel as though I need to work on my mid-range shots some more because it really hasn't been going in for me. I got to work on my post play.

You committed to Wake Forest not too long ago…why Wake Forest? What made you pull the trigger?

They always showed me the most interest and when no other school like even knew who I was they believed in.
