What more could four-star prospect Demetrius Walker want than to be a hometown kid playing for a hometown school?
Nothing, really. That is why the 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard from San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) Jserra Catholic High School committed to the USC Trojans.
"It really came down to Coach Floyd and him coaching a bunch of guys that I know," Walker told Rivals.com. "I asked them how he treated them, and they all said it was amazing how well he treated them. The campus is amazing. The school is amazing. I just wanted to be a part of it."
Walker, who has his eyes set on the NBA, also spoke about the style of play and development of players in the USC program.
"Coach Floyd gets players to the NBA, and that's where I want to be," he said. "They play my style of ball. It is an up and down style where when the ball comes off the rim, they just go. If they can't score in transition, then they set it up and set a lot of screens for the wings."
Walker, who is the No. 90 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, is the first USC commitment for the class of 2009.
