Walters Working On His Individual Game

Scout.com's East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan had a chance to watch the Juice All Stars compete this past weekend at IS8 ...

Brandon Walters possesses the type of frame at 6-foot-9 that most division one schools would find interesting. The question is not with his size -- he obviously has it -- but with the way he approaches the game.

Walters sometimes possesses a passive game -- afraid to make mistakes. "Sometimes he is afraid of getting too many fouls early," said Juice coach Tiny Morton. "It hurts him that he is worried about that."

Walters plays for Morton with the Juice All Stars in the IS8 Fall League. The Juice completed their pool play undefeated. Now the playoffs will come. And it's a chance for Walters to show he is worthy of a high division one scholarship.

"He is much more aggressive in practice," Morton said.

But when Walters plays in games, he seems to shy away from being aggressive on both ends of the court.

Walters also plays for an elite basketball program in Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, New York under Tiny Morton. So Tiny knows Brandon the best.

"Providence, Seton Hall, Rutgers, and Auburn are some of the schools that are interested," according to Morton. "He won't take any visits yet."

The reason being is that Walters will take the SAT for the first time in a couple of weeks. For now, Brandon continues to work on his confidence. There are plenty of college coaches keeping an eye on his progress.
