The Iowa high school hoops offseason is now in full swing, and All Iowa Attack Black sophomore DaQuavion Walker has been one of the better stories so far.
He was utterly impressive at Midwest Live! In Omaha last month, and it was his mixture of speed, athleticism, vision and passing that caught our eye.
“I’m a good ball-handler, and I can drive and get people open. I like to keep the intensity up, I like to control the game and slow it down. I like the attack the rim, and I definitely like to drive more than shoot — I need to work on my shooting more,” said Walker.
Last season, as a sophomore at Waterloo East, the 6-foot-1 point guard started varsity most games. He says he’ll be transferring to Waterloo West next season.
“I just feel like it was going to be better for me basketball-wise. I think they’ll push me to be a better player,” said Walker. “We‘re going to be good, with Vasko (Navakovic), Isaiah (Johnson), Jaden (Keller).”
The rest of the spring, he’ll certainly be one to watch with All Iowa Attack Black 16U.
“I know I’ll have to be a leader and keep the team in place, and bring everyone together and just play hard and be there when they need me,” said Walker, who hopes his recruitment starts to materialize this summer.
“I’m trying to to go to more camps so I can get more recognized, and just keep putting in the work until it pays off and some college coaches notice it.”
