Class of 2018 prospect Lauren Walker of Pensacola, Fla., is a high energy and IQ option at the guard spot.

By: @BrandonClayPSB

Jonathan Hemingway’s takeaway – #EBASuper64 Showcase (June 2017): Walker is a strong, athletic guard who can disrupt opposing ball handlers with her activity. Her quick feet and long arms allow her to head the defensive attack with full court pressure. Offensively Walker’s specialty is attacking the lane with drives downhill. She has a good first step and will use her strength to get past defenders when they try to body up on her. The area of her game where she can develop is confidence in her weak hand. Mixing up those attacks with the left hand should keep the defense off balance.

Jonathan Hemingway’s takeaway – #EBATop40 Showcase (March 2017): Walker is an athletic wing-forward who can fill up the stat sheet in a number of areas. Her ability to defend and rebound makes her a versatile piece on the court for her team. She can defend multiple positions on the perimeter as well as hold her own in the paint. She is a perfect type of player to switch screens all over the court. Her offensive ability, while still growing, is a threat to opponents because of her strength and quickness. She can get to the rim quickly with the dribble. The immediate thing that she can grow in her game is the range on her jump shot.

Jonathan Hemingway’s takeaway – Maya Moore Elite Skills Academy (March 2016): Walker is a high energy wing who brings hustle to the court consistently. She gets in a stance and plays in a defensive stance consistently. She will hound the ball and get into the passing lanes very well. Offensively she works best away from the ball and is active and getting open.
