One of the nation’s top prospects in the 2023 recruiting class is on campus this weekend to visit with Chris Beard and the Texas basketball program.
Five-star shooting guard Ja’Kobe Walter is one of Texas’ top targets from the high school level. 247Sports composite ranks Walter as the No. 2 player from the state of Texas and No. 23 overall player in the country.
Brandon Jenkins of 247Sports had high remarks about Walter in his scouting report.
Walter is a scorer with long arms who can knock down shots with range. He shoots a set shot but he is a consistent shooting threat from the three-point line. Walter is one of the consistently productive and fundamentally sound shooting guards in his class and a tighter handle could only assist him in firmly grasping that title. He does a good job on the defensive end with his ability to defend both wing positions given his size, length, and activity.
Texas landed two five-stars in the 2022 cycle in Dillon Mitchell and Arterio Morris. Beard hopes Walter will headline his 2023 recruiting class.
