EJ Walker Talks West Virginia Visit, Says He’ll be Back



WVU recruit EJ Walker

2025 G EJ Walker made his unofficial visit to West Virginia over the weekend. The WVU recruiting priority enjoyed his time in Morgantown and looks to return sometime soon.

“I’ll absolutely be back to WVU, I look forward to coming and seeing the guys and the staff in action. WVU has always been on my dream school list, so getting the offer was really cool while on campus,” Walker told WV Sports Now.

Walker (6-foot-8, 220 pounds), with 2024 PF Jesse McCulloch and G Colin White, toured the basketball facilities and attended the Towson football game on Saturday. Walker was amazed by the Mountaineer fans showed out this weekend for the football game.

“When I arrived on campus Friday night we saw the lot packed with RVs for Saturday’s game, I’d never seen anything like that,” he said. “Football game day was crazy! WVU fans are super nice. Walking through tailgaters was wild, they know how to get ready for the game. Being on the sidelines pregame was cool, even ran into alumni who welcomed me. Best part was watching the game with the guys they had a really great section and I enjoyed it.”

Walker was able to meet with WVU head coach Bob Huggins. Huggins was honored during the Towson game after his basketball Hall of Fame enshrinement last weekend.

“Coach Huggins is really chill and has some really hilarious stories. It was cool being there while Huggs was honored on the field,” Walker said.

The junior from Lloyd Memorial High School (KY) says that Huggins likes his versatility and his ability to guard all positions. Walker commented on his playstyle as one of the top players from Kentucky.

“I am a Swiss Army knife on the court. I take pride in making the players around me better. My passing game is tough. I can score from anywhere. If I had to compare for people who haven’t gotten a chance to see me I’d say I play like Scottie Barnes or Jayson Tatum,” he said.

Walker has picked up offers from Duquesne, Northern Kentucky, Ohio, Stony Brook, Toledo, West Virginia and Youngstown State. Walker’s recruitment has picked up rapidly over the past couple of months as the rising sophomore is gaining attention from high major programs. Walker has visited Cincinnati, Miami (OH), Purdue, Ohio State and Xavier so far and plans on visiting Illinois, Illinois State, Indiana and Purdue later this fall.

WV Sports Now will keep up to date with the latest recruiting and transfer portal news during the offseason.
