Point Guard of the Future
Uconn received a verbal commitment from Kemba Walker, a point guard from Queens, New York. At 6 foot 1, Kemba still has a year to play in high school and will join the team next season. He is reminiscent of Taliek Brown in that he is a pass first point guard and lacks the consistent outside shot.
Walker has shot up the rankings since the beginning of the High School season, reaching 4th best at his position in the '08 class.
An early verbal agreement is not a contract and it could be easily nullified if Walker would like to test the waters again but for now Uconn has added depth if any guards should depart early.
