Walker's Three-Point Shot Is Attractive Skill

Scout.com's East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan was in South Jamaica, New York watching some Fall IS8 league games ...

There's a skill on the college basketball level that is recognized as a key to winning a National Championship -- three-point shooting. It can keep a team in a game against a bigger and better rebounding opponent. And it can lift a slower team out of a zone so you can take advantage of individual matchups.

It's also a big skill possessed by Erving Walker, who competed yesterday morning at IS8 in Queens, New York. Walker's three three-pointers helped the Juice All Stars upend Elmont, 59-44.

"He can shoot the long range jumper," Morton said.

He did yesterday for the Juice. Walker finished the game with 13 points. Erving doesn't force his shot too. So his points came within the flow of the game.

Erving is also focusing on getting himself to the front of the rim more, creating a bit with his handle so he can open up some easy baskets for his teams. He has a couple of years to work on these skills too since he is a member of the 2008 class.

Tennessee, Illinois, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton Hall, Oklahoma, Virginia, and Virginia Tech are schools Walker has already stated he has some interest in his recruiting process.

He has no leader right now. And it's likely how he does over the next year that will determine the scholarship offers.
