Walker was supposed to be a little better than she was. The knee injury is still lingering anytime you still have to wear a full leg brace your not going to play as well as you can. Miles is a good point guard if they can reel her in just a little a little loose on the passes and drives to the basket.

One-on-one with Jordan Walker and family
Jordan Walker played strictly at point guard in high school and then played off the ball most of the time at Western Michigan, where she had dual roles as a scorer and defender. Her college recruitment included teams from Power 5 conferences until she tore the ACL in her left knee in a spring practice and missed the summer showcase events right before her junior season of high school. While her recovery was rapid at four months and she returned for the high school season, most Power 5 schools had zeroed in on recruiting targets, so Walker joined her sister at Western Michigan – which never stopped recruiting her – after graduating from Mona Shores. She started 23 games as a freshman for the Broncos in 2017-18. Before her sophomore season started in 2018-19, Walker tore the same ACL, as well as the lateral and medial menisci, during an open gym session in the summer and had to redshirt.
Second, an ACL is a big set back injury and a second tear with additional damage is something that many players might not come back from. Having another off season to rehab her knee should also make a big difference.
