Dantez Walton is a skilled swingman that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He is having a solid senior season, and he played very well in his team’s loss to Arkansas. He will need to continue to make jump shots consistently and improve his on-ball defense, but right now, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
