Marquise Walker Stays Back A Grade…Does It Help or Hurt?

Is He No.1 PG?

Left – Marquise Walker

The main reason we like Marquise Walker from Chicago is because at the MSE National Basketball Camp at Fordham University in 2010, he begged to have a few big men on his team to distribute the ball to. A point guard usually tends to behave selfish in a showcase camp setting. However, Walker who was class of 2018 is now class of 2019 and repeating the seventh grade. And he’s 5’7″.

(Correction-Walker actually repeated 6th grade and will be in 7th grade for his first time this September . We wasn’t aware that Walker repeated 6th grade at a private school, in fact the news wasn’t made public until Marquises’ dad recently notified us via e-mail. The message read something like, “he’s now class of 2019”. So, since we had know record of him previously re-classing in 6th grade, it was normal to think he was in his right grade, which is 7th and his original class of 2018—-and therefor would’ve had to repeat 7th grade to be “now class of 2019.” Should MSE have known Walker was in 6th grade again and not 7th grade? Well, we don’t always know about things as they happen nor able to put everything together without knowing specifics, especially when it involves private school; and if a parent, coach or player decides not to discuss certain information. What we do know though is last year, then 6th grade Walker wasn’t playing only down; he also played up against 7th & 8th graders. And as a 5th & 6th grader, he started for one of the top five Indiana state based AAU teams in the country, averaging double digit points per game. That’s another reason we hold him in such high regard. As a matter of fact, he’s currently playing 7th grade in the AAU nationals. Is Walker perhaps the best ‘middle school’ point guard in both classes of 2018 & 2019? Watch out.)

If Walker shows up at the MSE MD MANIA CAMP in August to make the game look easy and put teammates first with low to zero turnovers, then we suggest he’s okay.
