Widely considered the top freshman prospect in the country, Walker picked the Sun Devils over Arizona, USC, St. John’s and Grand Canyon. He averaged over 21 points, six rebounds and close to four assists last year at Moreau Catholic in Heyward, California before announcing earlier this summer he’d be transferring to Hillcrest Prep here in Phoenix. Per SunDevilSource.com, his dad Kahari Walker, will be an assistant at Hillcrest and his family is already living in the Valley.
We’ve seen Walker in action recently. Elite three level scorer w/ NBA wing guard size already. Highly skilled, controlled, plays above rim. https://t.co/Sryh9Z3Xc4

Many national analysts feel Walker could be the most decorated prospect to land in Tempe by the time he’s a senior.
The Devils finished 15-18 last year but many believe the program is on the rise under Hurley, who is entering his third year at the school. Landing decorated prospects like Walker and certainly doesn’t hurt.
