Jarace Walker is a physical 6’8 hybrid forward who plays hard, fast, and at a tenacious level at all times. He is an elite athlete who also has so much raw power, which helps him be such a versatile defender, rebounder, and finisher. He plays with a swagger and confidence that echoes his play style. Walker does a bit of everything on the floor; however, he does need to improve his handles, pace, shooting form and shot creation to separate himself from some other players in his class.
