On Friday, the Syracuse Orange women’s basketball team added its fifth commitment to the class of 2021. Annie Wright (Tacoma, Wash.) guard Julianna Walker announced she’s headed to SU.

As noted above, Walker is all-state up in Washington, and the 5-foot-6 point guard is among the most prolific scorers in state history. Though she’s not a top-100 player like some of SU’s other additions for this class, she has some clear potential as a scorer, and Q’s up-tempo scheme is usually looking for that in players they bring on board.
As mentioned, Walker is the fifth addition for the upcoming class, joining Amani Bartlett, Shayeann Day-Wilson, Latasha Lattimore and Nyah Wilson. Lattimore, Day-Wilson and Wilson are all top-100 prospects, according to ESPN. SU once again appears to be bringing in one of the stronger classes in the ACC and the country — which hopefully translates to some deeper NCAA Tournament success.
Welcome aboard, Julianna! You can check out some film below.
