Jake Walter - CCH (Class of 2018)

Recommended Posts

Austin Crawford was invited to a game last week. Was offered a preferred walk-on spot for next year's squad. I know they are out of scholarships for the 2017 class.

 

I would think he would hold out for a scholarship at another school?

I'm sure that's his plan or the full ride offer he already has at the University of Pikeville. Just stating that it's an option.

The boy is only 16 - he has so much more opportunity than any other NKy boy ever has had before him. He could play the "prep school" game to come out even further ahead. He's not going to Pikeville !

The comments about attending Pikeville were not directed toward Jake Walter.

Sounds like high major schools are rolling through Park Hills for Mr Walters and Mr Fredrick ..... Have to tip my hat to Ruthsatz he has a absolute machine rolling at Cov Cath and their doesn't seem to be in letting up

Big spring and summer for Jake. Playing at the highest level of the AAU for Indiana Elite will get him a lot of exposure.

High major for sure. Watched him play with my son in middle school never ever would I have ever believed that kid would be playing college basketball . In 8th grade the coach barely played him and yelled at him every game . Three years later all this . When I saw him against cooper this year I could not believe my eyes . His body has changed so much and his speed running down the floor . Posting up dunking . I guess you had to see him as a 8th grader to understand. Good for him , and NKY bball .....

Him only averaging 7pts has a lot to do with Cov Caths style of play. In my opinion, of the 2 games I saw, they didn't get him the ball nearly as much as they should have. This is typical of almost all high school teams now. Seems like they either don't want to play a post game or don't know how.

I think some people underestimate his passing ability. It is hard to guard/tip the ball when he holds it 8 ft in the air, and he has great vision on the court. He's been working at ASAP with the rest of the team so he has the strength to put some speed on his passes.

 

He's also a rebounding machine and will only get better as he grows into his body. You simply cannot teach height. He may be one of the highest D1 players out of CCH in a while if he keeps up the improvement.

Excellent program for big Jake to be in. Coached against the program many times and they certainly get it done.

How high ? I read Fredrick has Xavier Iowa and a lot of other high majors like Indiana, Butler , UC. Is it possible they could be a package deal ?

Is he and Fredrick playing together or is he hearing to the power house ALL OHIO Red ?

What % is Jake shooting from the field? The reason his shots are limited may be due more to efficiency than style of play. A new reality of the game is that GOOD 3 point shooters are more efficient on pts/possession basis than VERY GOOD 2 point shooters. If Jake is shooting a very strong % from the floor and getting to the line a high % of the time then he should be seeing the ball more.

 

If not, directing shots to CCH's more efficient scorers is a better strategy.

 

My take is that Jake has been challenged by the coaches to be more consistent/efficient scoring the ball. He has come a long way but he is still the #5 scoring option on the team.

 

With Ruthsatz, Frederick, and Mayer(s) returning next year - this IS a big spring/summer for Jake, primarily to work up the ladder of CCH scoring options heading into his senior year.
