Hopkins guard Kerwin Walton wants to be known for being more than just a shooter, but his deadly stroke was all coaches were talking about after his 10 three-pointers in a game during the start of the July evaluation period last week.
The 6-5 Hopkins senior scored 30 points on 10-for-13 shooting from beyond the arc in D1 Minnesota's victory over Team Loaded (N.C.) at the Adidas Summer Championships in Birmingham, Ala.
Walton, one of six Class of 2020 standouts with Gophers scholarship offers, combined to hit 15 threes in two games Saturday. D1 Minnesota was without five-star Prior Lake senior forward Dawson Garcia, who was out because of an illness.
Previously, Walton was hearing mostly from Denver, South Dakota, Creighton and Minnesota. After the last Adidas circuit, he picked up scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Miami (Fla.), Iowa and Iowa State. His offer list will keep adding high majors after last weekend's shooting display.
