The Duquesne Dukes are getting in early on a junior guard from Virginia.
After scouting him last season and most recently over the last two weekends on a live stream of the Phenom Challenge, Keith Dambrot’s program becomes the first team to offer 2022 combo guard Walker Andrews from Virginia Episcopal High School in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Following the offer from Duquesne, Andrews received another offer from NJIT and is getting interest from Delaware, Bucknell, Youngstown State and a number of mid-major along with a few high-majors.
Last season at Virginia Episcopal, Andrews was the teams sharp shooter, connecting on 62 3-pointers while averaging 10.9 points per game. In his last two tournaments, in which he was viewed by many programs including Duquesne, Andrews averaged over 21 points per game.
College basketball recruiting insider Patrick O’Brien, who’s watched Andrews in live action, has this description of his game: “Andrews displayed that he can be a consistent knockdown shooter. Spotting up around the perimeter and finding his shot in rhythm, he did it time and time again. He also showed a nice one-dribble mid-range jumper on occasions. Just has a smooth, confident release as a shooter.”
