Four-star point guard Jada Walker listed the Arizona Wildcats as one of five finalists on Wednesday, the others being Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi State and NC State.

Walker is the No. 63 recruit and No. 15 point guard in the 2021 class, according to ESPN. Prospects Nation ranks her as the No. 99 recruit.

This is what ESPN has to say about Walker, who is listed at 5-foot-7:

Confident game manager executes in half-court game; left-handed playmaker knocks down jumpers with range to the arc; elusive off the dribble, penetrates and finds a way to the rim, takes contact and finishes plays, gets to the stripe; brings consistency, toughness to the back court; clock manager, basketball IQ.

Walker attends New Hope Academy in Landover Hills, Maryland where last spring she led the school to a championship at GEICO Nationals and earned MVP honors. It was only the program’s second year in existence, so Walker is used to being part of an upstart program like the one Adia Barnes is building at Arizona.

The Wildcats currently have one commit for the 2021 class, four-star guard Madison Conner from Gilbert, an elite-shooting off-guard.

The Wildcats will need to replace Aari McDonald after the 2020-21 season so a point guard like Walker would be a nice fit moving forward.
