Draft Notes

Jordan Walsh is one of the most explosive athletes in the country with big time bounce, length and defensive ability. He has all the tools and the upside but will need some time to develop before having a big impact at the NBA level.

His calling card is his defense. Walsh is a lock-down defender on the perimeter who plays an aggressive style and really gets after the ball. He can guard a multitude of positions and gives great effort on the defensive end of the court. He’s like a one man trap with his excessive length and active hands.

He’s got ideal size for a wing and all the tools to be special on both ends of the court.

His offensive game is a work in progress but he shows good instincts for moving the ball, making plays for teammates and is a decent off-the-ball mover.

Has the makings of jumper but will need to put in the work to get consistent shooting the ball.
