Walker was an All-Colonial Athletic Association nomination for 2020-21 and was named the All-CAA Defensive Player of the Year. He helped lead the Huskies to a share of the regular-season title this season.
After a strong freshman season, Walker took his game to the next level as a sophomore. He averaged 18.8 points per game to go with 4.8 assists, 2.4 rebounds, and an incredible 2.4 steals. He dropped 19 points and six assists in a road loss to Georgia and scored a career-high 36 points in a win over Towson.
For his career, Walker is shooting 45% from the floor and 35% from three-point range. He is an elite scoring threat out of the point guard position and brings a solid punch to Tom Izzo’s squad moving forward.
