ELYRIA HS '14: Earned three boys' basketball varsity letters... Lauded as one of the top guards in Ohio's Class of 2014 by numerous prep pundits... Averaged 21.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game as a senior... Crossed the 1,000 career-point milestone last year... Named All-Lorain County Division I Player of the Year - the county's most prestigious award - in addition to All-Lorain County first team accolades as a senior... The Associated Press bestowed Division I All-Ohio honorable mention in 2013... Walton was the only player from Lorain County to earn AP All-Ohio honors... Scored 21 points in the 2013 Gene Legeza Cage Classic, a yearly all-star event featuring Ohio's top basketball talent... Finished second in that event's three-point contest... Averaged 17.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game as a junior... Received all-county and all-league first team accolades that year... Competed in the All-Ohio Nike City Series in the summer months leading up to his senior year.
PERSONAL: Born in Oberlin, Ohio... Parents are Stacie and Harold Walton... Is the oldest of two children... Haley is his younger sister... Currently undecided on his major... Earning a Division I basketball scholarship is his proudest personal accomplishment... Winning a district championship in 2012 is his career sports highlight... Felt that UC Davis was the best fit for him, both academically and athletically... "Trust in God's plan" is the best piece of advice he has ever received.
Kudos to Aggies;
I'm lovin' my new home
