Walker Kessler showed why he’s the #1 Recruit in the State of Georgia during the 2019 Hawks-Naismith Tipoff Classic November 16, 2019, at Pace Academy in Atlanta, GA. The 2020 big from Woodward Academy in College Park, GA has excellent feet, the ability to protect the rim, and a soft release on his shot which allows him to extend the defense beyond the 3 pt. range with a silky smooth release. He lacks the toughness and physicality you would like to see from a big but his potential to develop into a solid NBA prospect is a no-brainer. Mr. Kessler chose UNC over Duke and other major D1 schools looking to capitalize on his skillsets.
Popscout was on hand doing what we do…evaluating players, getting great footage, and taking butter action shots. A few clips of this young man in action as they outshine host Pace Academy 56-52 in front of a sold-out crowd. The atmosphere was lit out here in the dirty!
