Class of 2023 shooting guard Ja’Kobe Walter has committed to Baylor, he announced Wednesday. The five-star recruit chose the Bears over Texas, Kansas, Alabama, and Auburn. He is currently the No.1 shooting guard in the country, according to 247Sports.
Walter, 17, announced in May that he will be attending Link Academy for his senior year alongside five-star forward Omaha Biliew, and Oklahoma commit Jacolb Cole.
The 6-foot-5, 180-pound SG as a junior at McKinney High School, averaged 23.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 2.3 steals. Walter will join Miro Little as the Bears’ two commitments for the 2023 class.
