Walker attended Centennial High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. She was named the 2019 Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year after leading her team to a 31-1 record and a fifth-straight State Championship. Walker averaged 11.5 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 2.1 steals in her senior season and was named a two-time First Team All-State selection. Walker was nominated for the McDonald’s All-American Game and was rated as the No. 43 recruit in the Class of 2019 by ESPN.
