Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Solid rebounder for his size
Solid defender that can get steals and blocks
Very good athlete

Cons:

Must extend his shooting range
Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Unselfish to a fault
Can have lapses defensively

Summary:

Jarace Walker is a very athletic, strong combo forward that excels at making plays on both ends of the floor.  He is a high-flyer that can make impressively athletic plays on both ends of the floor, has some point forward skills, and he is a rangy defender that can cover plenty of ground.  On the other hand, he will need to improve his jump shot and lateral agility.  He is a very talented prospect that could be a lottery pick in the 2023 draft.
