Walker, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, has excellent body control and a quick first step. The Reading native averaged 11.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.2 turnovers in 27.8 minutes with the Hurricanes as a freshman.
He has said he would be a good fit for Philly. Walker, who played AAU basketball for Delaware County-based Team Final, has drawn comparisons to Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, a finalist for rookie of the year. Walker said he has been told he compares to Indiana Pacers all-star guard Victor Oladipo, based on his athleticism.
Bridges, a 6-6 forward, averaged 17.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists this season for the Spartans as a sophomore. The Flint, Mich. native shot 45.7 percent from the field, including 36.4 percent on three-pointers. After losing 20 pounds since his college season ended, Bridges is weighing in at 220 pounds.
Like Walker and Bridges, Milton is expected to get drafted. The 6-6, 205-pounder with a 6-11 wingspan is a projected to be second-round pick. The junior averaged 18 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 22 games this season.
