Kerwin Walton is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He can knock down pull-up jumpers effortlessly, and he can get all the way to the rim to score around the basket and also finish through contact. He also is an aggressive defender that will get steals in games. He may need to show teams that he can capably run the point at higher levels, but his solid ability to knock down shots combined with his athleticism could enable him to quickly move up draft boards sometime down the road.
