2019 Four-Star CJ Walker Talks Recruiting


CJ Walker, a 6-foot-7 small forward from Orlando Christian (FL) Prep caught up with us at D1Vision to discuss his recruiting trail. Walker has taken unofficial visits to Florida, Central Florida, and Florida State thus far in his recruiting process.

Florida-“Florida had a really nice campus, especially their enjoy dorms. I attended the football game and the atmosphere was great. They gave me a tour of the campus and it showed me how nice their academic programs are. The technology for the basketball program really stuck out to me as well.”

Central Florida-“I attended their football game against Florida International and it was a good time. They definitely have a nice campus as well, which they are known for. I’ve been on campus multiple times and enjoy what the program is doing with coach [Johnny] Dawkins.”

Florida State-“I attended a tailgate for a football game which provided a great atmosphere, I enjoyed it. I didn’t get to see much of their campus, so I look forward to learning more about the school and their program.”

One school Walker told us at D1Vision that has shown recent interest is North Carolina, “Coach [Steve] Robinson told me he really likes my improvement just within the last month. They have been in to see me twice within the last few weeks.”

Walker and his camp expect to set up an unofficial visit to North Carolina soon. Other schools they are expecting to set up unofficial visits include NC State, Alabama, and Miami (FL). They are working to possibly set these visits up in December or January, if time permits.

According to 247Sports, Walker is the No. 98 overall player for the Class of 2019 and the No. 28 small forward. Walker holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Central Florida, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Louisville, LSU, Memphis, Miami (FL), Rutgers, and Virginia Tech amongst others.

Walker wants to make it known that his recruitment is wide open. As Walker told us at D1Vision, “Any offer right now is a good offer. I am open to anyone at this moment and feel blessed to be in this situation.”

Walker told us his biggest goal for his junior season is to continue to show his versatility. He wants to show he has the skills to play full-time on the perimeter and be labeled positionally as a wing. Walker watched his Orlando Christian Prep teammate Nassir Little turn himself into a top 10 prospect and feels he has the potential to do the same.

Walker is excited to team back up with Little and Ronaldo Segu, as Orlando Christian Prep looks to win back-to-back state championships.
