NC State extended an offer to senior small forward Antwan Walker of Woodson High in Washington D.C. Walker is small forward who checks in at 6’7" and 215 pounds. According to 247sports.com, Walker also holds offers from Georgetown, St. Louis, Manhattan, Duquesne, James Madison, Hofstra, St. Josephs, UNC-G, and Towson.
Walker was quite a force for his high school team this season during their table-running 31-0 campaign. The senior small forward averaged nearly 16 points per game and over 10 rebounds (some of the rebounding stats are incomplete but 10+ is a safe assumption). Walker filled up the stat sheet in other areas as well, amassing 5 or more blocks in at least 12 games during his final year of high school ball.
Walker participated in the Adidas Uprising event in Dallas, Texas over the weekend for Team Loaded (VA). He was productive, averaging 11.3 points through four games, and the exposure the event offered has helped out his recruitment. He received both his NC State and St. Louis offer on Monday. The Pack were the second power conference offer for the forward following what should be the current favorite for his services in Georgetown. There are other majors lurking here as well.
It will be interesting to see what becomes of this offer and how hard the Pack end up pursuing Walker. The one caveat here is that Walker is not guaranteed to be a class of 2016 recruit, as he could still end up taking the junior college route.
