When we first caught up with Chris Walker almost a year ago, he wasn’t quite getting the recognition he should have been – but that soon changed. Chris not only became well known on the summer circuit, he was invited to several major events including the NBPA Top 100 and Adidas Nations. Chris continues to work on his game – and get a ton of D1 offers – and here’s Chris’s current favorite highlight video that showcases his talents on the court:

Chris Walker (6’8″, SF/PF, 2013) isn’t a household name yet, even in recruiting circles. That will probably change in the very near future, as the current 2011 class moves on and the ever-present need for big men in the college ranks means that Chris and his fellow 2013 recruits will be even more highly sought after targets. That doesn’t mean college coaches aren’t aware of him; he’s already garnered a bevy of D1 offers and has extensive interest from major programs across the country.

Chris is mobile, a shot blocker, quick to the rim, with hops and athleticism. But he can also shoot, which makes him the type of player who can be dangerous at any level. In this installment of 7 Questions, we caught up with Chris and got the latest on his thoughts on his future college choice, and what he’s working in his game. Chris currently has several offers on the table from quite a few schools.
