Already considered one of Nevada’s best prospects, 6-foot-3 guard Brevin Walter says he’s improved quite a bit since the spring.
Walter was playing with the Las Vegas Knicks in the adidas Gold Gauntlet this offseason, going up against that stiff competition helped him to hone his skills.
“I have been able to get better at scoring at different levels and gotten a lot better at being a more consistent scorer. Also, I have gotten a lot better defensively and learning more tricks about stopping the other team’s scorers,” said Walter.
“Playing on the adidas Gauntlet Gold Division was a great experience, being able to play at a high level. I was able to score 20 against Compton Magic and have a few big games against some very good teams.”
The Faith Lutheran senior is now heading into a final high school season, where he’ll see his role increase dramatically from years past.
“My role has changed tremendously, I am the only returner from last year’s team so I will have a lot on my shoulders,” said Walter. “I just want to set the standards for the team and lead them in the right direction to get some wins.”
Some Division I interest continues to come in for Walter, including Ivy League interest and a couple Western D1 programs.
“Recruiting has been going well, no offers quite yet, but UC Riverside has been very interested and so has Denver University. There has still been some interest from the Ivy’s,” said Walter, who says he’s considering playing an extra season of grassroots ball as an unsigned player.
Ahead of that, though, the talented floor general has his senior ahead, and a deep playoff run is the goal.
“I have set a lot of personal goals for the season statistics-wise, and as a leader on the team,” said Walter. “Also, we have some team goals to win the league and make a run into playoffs this year.”
