Kerwin Walton Updates His Recruitment, Talks Gophers, Senior Season and Much More

Kerwin Walton, a 6-foot-4 senior guard from Minnetonka (MN) Hopkins, is ranked as state’s number three player in the Class of 2020 and one of the country’s top outside shooters.

Walton scored 32 points Saturday in the Royals’ 85-70 opening loss to Park Center in the Breakdown Big 12 Classic.

Walton averaged 16.7 points per game for the Royals last season, who won the Class AAAA state title in March. He missed their season-opening 74-65 loss to East Ridge, but Walton scored in double figures in every game but one and had seven games of 20 or more points, with a season-high 25 points versus Minnehaha Academy and also against Wayzata in the Section 6AAAA section finals.
