WACO, Texas – Baylor men’s basketball signee Ja’Kobe Walter has been named a McDonald’s All-American, announced Tuesday on ESPN.

Walter is the sixth player in program history to be named a McDonald’s All-American, joining Tweety Carter, Perry Jones III, Isaiah Austin, Kendall Brown and Keyonte George.

Walter, originally from McKinney, is playing his senior season at Link Academy in Branson, Mo., which finished last year as the No. 2 team in ESPN's national high school rankings.

Before transferring to Link, ESPN's No. 17-rated player led McKinney to its first-ever state championship game, where he scored a team-high 23 points against Duncanville. On the season, he averaged 23.3 points and 7.6 rebounds for the Lions en route to 5-6A offensive player of the year honors.

He also earned a spot on the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All-State Team and the 6A All-State Tournament Team.

The men’s McDonalds All-American game will be held March 28, 2023, at the Toyota Center in Houston. For tickets to the event can be purchased at ToyotaCenter.com
