MJ Walker entered his junior season at Jonesboro with some massive expectations. Also a star wide receiver on the gridiron, Walker had some pondering to do.

When he envisioned his future, did he see football or basketball?

Listed at 6-foot-5, 195 pounds and possessing elite athleticism, Walker probably couldn’t go wrong. Either way, his future is incredibly bright.

Luckily for hoops fans, basketball shined brightest for Walker.

Ranked No. 8 in the 2017 graduating class, Walker has continued his progression since focusing on hoops full-time. Through 20 games, the Atlanta Xpress product is averaging 23.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists.
