ESPN’s John Stovall watched Walton at the All-Oho Super 16 in Columbus and named him as a standout player at the event.

Walton is a smooth scoring point guard who is an effective shooter to 20 feet. He is a solid shooter who is good at freeing himself for drives into the paint. Walton is also a very good passer and could be the heir apparent to Trey Burke at Michigan.

ESPN also updated Walton’s player profile with the following bottom line:

Walton Jr. Is a true point guard the can control the game with his ability to push the ball and deliver it to open teammates and run the show. He is good scorer and when in ryrthum can drop big numbers. As he adds strength and makes his jumper a consistent weapon he will be even more productive. Walton is tough, competes and has great upside.

Indiana All-Stars' Glenn Robinson III has earned respect for his playing skills

Glenn Robinson III has earned respect for his playing skills

Any story written about Glenn Robinson III inevitably mentions his dad, Glenn Robinson Jr., the former Purdue All-American and NBA star.

Big Dog. Big shoes.

But these days, there is less curiosity about Robinson III and the link to his father, or the similarities and differences in their personalities on and off the basketball court. The younger Robinson has paved his own way, earned his own name.

"Every time I see him play," said Indiana All-Stars coach Craig Teagle, "his stock goes up with me."

The 6-6 Robinson, who goes by "Tre," has earned rave reviews with his All-Star teammates this week. On a team filled with talent from the immediate area -- nine of the 13 players on the roster are from either Marion County or a neighboring county -- there was a bit of unfamiliarity with Robinson, who played at Lake Central High School in the extreme northwest corner of the state.

Only a sophomore but Michigan PG Trey Burke may be the best player at the #LeBronJamesSkillsAcademy. Can score, create, & distribute.

Probasketballdraft@Probballdraft

Day 2 has wrapped up & again Michigan PG Trey Burke looked great. Big 10 POY candidate. The Wolverines run in March will depend on him.

James Kerti@jameskerti

Trey Burke has stood out big time in the LeBron #NikeSkills,@*******. He's strong with great ball control in the PnR.

So happy Trey is coming back for another year. His ability to score in the point mixed with his outside touch makes him one of the best PGs in the nation. Looking forward to some UM hoops this year.

More on Burke and some positive reports on Hardaway as well

LeBron James Skills Academy

Some quotes from the link above:

Hoopniks.com called Burke “arguably the top lead guard in attendance” among college players:

Trey Burke was arguably the top lead guard in attendance. He showed efficient shot-making, distributed the basketball and had an all-around game. He should be one of the elite point guards in college basketball next season as he continues to progress and impress with his skill level.

Diamond Stone Set To Visit Michigan - RealGM Wiretap

Diamond Stone, a 6-foot-10 center who is rated as a top-5 player in the 2015 class, will make an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend, according to AAU coach DeShawn Curtis.

"His father (Robert Stone) is from Flint," Curtis said. "So, obviously there's some ties there. Honestly, he's kind of wide open as far as what he's looking at. He likes what they're trying to do there at Michigan, trying to build the program back up.

"Obviously they had a great season last year, and he likes what they're doing there right now and wants to check it out."

Stone averaged 13.5 points and 7.8 rebounds as a freshman at Dominican High School in Wisconsin.

New facilities for @ umichbball incredible 2 yrs ago substandard today a game changer no chance to recruit McGary & Robinson w/o the upgrade

Tim McCormick‏ @ TMcCormickESPN

First impression @ umichbball most talent since the Fab Five - 5 legit NBA prospects 11 deep tremendous size loaded with athletes on the wing

Tim McCormick‏ @ TMcCormickESPN

# michiganbasketball practice thoughts Jon Horford is 260 top 5 bigs in the Big 10 Trey Burke has added leg strength Hardaway improved handle

Tim McCormick‏ @ TMcCormickESPN

Nick Stauskas @ umichbball has not missed - Best M shooter since Lou Bullock? - like Jon Diebler from OSU but better athlete/handle # starter?

That all sounds great. The biggest surprise from that is the Horford comment. He was injured most of last year, but looked raw otherwise.

I am pumped to the gills with excitement for some Michigan hoops.
