Arizona Basketball: CJ Walker has Wildcats in his Top 5

Another day, another Top Five list for another prominent, Arizona Basketball recruit, as the Wildcats make the cut for CJ Walker.

For those who need a recap, or haven’t been following, Sean Miller and the Arizona Basketball program are putting in work on the recruiting trails. That hard work is paying off, with four-star forward CJ Walker being an indication of that.

Already after a number of highly regarded recruits, let us give a brief run down of Arizona’s recruiting efforts. Five-star point guard Nico Mannion has the Wildcats in the Top Four.

Additionally, the Wildcats are doing well with current class of 2019 recruits Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Jaelyn Withers, Boogie EllisDrew Timme and Josh Green. All of them recently narrowed their recruiting lists too, and all have the Wildcats as a finalist!

Adding to that list is four-star forward, Walker. As you may recall, Walker recently narrowed his list to 12 schools, and Arizona made the list. Well, now weeks after narrowing his schools, it appears he’s now down to five schools, making his announcement via social media.

In addition to the Wildcats, Walker is also considering; Oregon, Florida, Miami, and LSU.

Considered the 45th overall recruit in the class of 2019, he’s also the 10th overall ranked power forward and the 10th best player in the state of Florida according to 247Sports.

Walker is a terrific player with very good upside, and has steadily been climbing in the recruiting circuit these past few months. Overall, Walker is a great athlete with good length, he possess a great motor, he shows solid lateral quickness on defense and has terrific rebounding ability.

Walker can stretch the floor at times, he can pull and hit a jumper, but that isn’t a strength of his at  this point. He definitely likes to play above the rim, he is a very tough match-up for anyone guarding him.

Just watch from his highlights here!

At Zona Zealots, we are excited for Walker and the fact the Wildcats are doing so well in recruiting so far! Hopefully the momentum continues to grow! Bear Down, Arizona!
