Chris Walker is a physical freak. He stands 6’10” and has the skills to play on the perimeter and knock down shots from mid-range and beyond.
Dave Telep, ESPN’s senior national recruiting analyst, is a big CW fan. He says:
Walker is a physical specimen and one of the most athletically gifted players in the class. He's a unique mix of explosion, athleticism and size. There isn't another big in the class with fast-twitch muscles, ability to change ends and be a factor in the paint defensively.
ESPN’s Southeast recruiting analyst Mike LaPlante adds this about Walker:
His face-up ability is a perfect fit for Donovan’s system as the Gators have had a lot of success causing matchup problems for opponents utilizing post players with perimeter skills. He will need to put on some weight and get stronger to handle the physical demands of the college level, but there will be few 6-10 freshmen arriving on any campus next season who can match Walker’s combination of size, skill and athleticism
With Gators monster post man Patric Young returning for his senior season and transfers Dorian Finney-Smith and Damontre Harris becoming eligible, the Gators will be positively scary. Now add Walker and his outrageous potential to the Florida roster. Could this be a year when Florida makes a run at another national title?
