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 be a more consistent shooter and improve his shot-creation skills. He is a very talented prospect that could be a lottery pick in the 2023 draft.
