Arizona State Lands 2020 Guard Kyree Walker

Kyree Walker Commits

Kyree Walker, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Hillcrest (AZ) Prep, committed to Arizona State on Friday per Scout. He is considering possibly reclassifying to the Class of 2019.

“It’s a family decision,” Walker told Scout. “I feel like I can go there, play my first year, and do something great for their program. Coach Bobby Hurley told me that he’s proud of me for all of my accomplishments and there’s more to come.”

According to ESPN, Walker is ranked as the No. 4 player in the Class of 2020.  He is the first commit in Arizona State’s 2020 class. He took an unofficial visit to Arizona State earlier this month (June 8).

“I’ll help the program with my passing,” said Walker. “They have an Ohio State transfer in Mickey Mitchell and that’s how I see myself. I’m a passer. I can score at will anytime I want to but I want to get my teammates involved.”

Playing with the Oakland Soldiers on the Nike EYBL, Walker has averaged 8.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 0.6 steals per game in 16 games. Walker, alongside USC Commit Taeshon Cherry, led the Soldiers to a 9-7 record, securing their spot in Peach Jam next month.

“Kyree Walker is a very dynamic and explosive athlete,” Hillcrest Head Coach Kyle Weaver told D1VISION. “He has a great skill set and can score from all three levels on the floor. He’s a five-star player but most of all he is a leader.”

Next season at Hillcrest, Walker will play alongside 5-star 2019 guard Josh Green, who holds an offer from Arizona State. He will also be joined at Hillcrest by 2018 transfer KJ Hymes.

“I want to get better,” said Walker. “I want to get a lot of titles and do something great for the program.”
