I have been watching every one of Walton and Irvin clips since their junior seasons. IMO, Walton was clearly the better player and the 'bigger' get during their junior years. It even became more apparent how important he was when Burke was next to gone to the NBA.
However, watching Irvin's senior year highlights so far - wow. I have always followed basketball closely, specifically Michigan recruiting. I can safely say Irvin's high school film is the best i have seen since..... Webber (although in different ways, and only including Michigan commits).
Irvin is the complete package. He can shoot. He can dribble. He can penetrate/drive (at an elite level i may add). He is long. He is so absolutely athletic.
Those close to Zak had stated the reason why no one had seen this years Irvin last year was because Gary Harris was there. I did not beliive it. Well, he either blew up in one year, or the reason was true.
Walton is a very, very good player. Potential McDonald all american. But wathcing Irvin - he is special. He is going to absolutely KILL it in JB's system. Kill it.
That is all- happy holidays everyone :)
