CJ Walker Talks Next Season and Cutting His List

CJ WALKER

When you have five-star wing Nassir Little and four-star point guard Ronaldo Segu on your roster, it may be difficult for other players to stand out. But for small forward CJ Walker, that’s not a problem.

Walker heads into his junior season this year, the last year the trio will take the court together. Walker believes he can become the leader after Little and Segu depart for college.

“Yes, I love playing with my brothers Rondo and Nas,” Walker said. “I’m the little brother so I watch them lead everyday so next year when they’re gone for college, I will be ready to step into a leadership role.”

Walker is a skillful player, with good ball handles and the ability to finish in the lane. The 6-foot-7 wing finished the evaluation period on the adidas Gauntlet sponsored Game Elite 2019 team. During his six-game stint, the four-star averaged 8.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.0 assist in only 12.5 minutes per outing. Despite his stellar performance, Walker admits he has plenty to work on.

“I want to continue to work on my handles and my shooting,” Walker stated when asked about areas he wants to improve. “I want to become a better defender. My style of play is uptempo. I love to attack the basket and finish at the rim. I love watching Kevin Durant.”

Walker’s hard work has paid off, garnering offers from the likes of Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Iowa State, Louisville, LSU, Miami and Virginia Tech, among others.

The 2019 wing is ranked No. 168 in the 247Sports industry-generated composite rankings. He is No. 52 at his position and No. 14 in the state of Florida. We here at D1Vision expect Walker to continue to rise through the rankings.

As far as his next step, Walker said he has a tentative timeline.

“I’ll probably cut my list a year from now,” Walker reported.
