Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays

Needs to improve his playmaking skills

Didn’t play enough as a freshman
Jabari Walker is an athletic combination forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He didn’t play much as a freshman, but he was very efficient as a shot maker on offense in limited minutes. He will need to tighten up his ball handling skills and cut down on fouls so he can stay on the floor. Walker had a fairly solid sophomore season this year. Currently, he is a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
