Fourth Canadian Hoop Star Coming To Hamilton Heights

Hawks' Ado No. 1 Prospect In State By One Service

Sunday, August 23, 2015 - by Larry Fleming

Hamilton Heights has pulled in another top-notch basketball star for the 2015-16 season.

And he’s from Canada, too.

Having already recently gotten three players from Canada, the latest north-of-the-border player to transfer to Hamilton Heights is 2017 point guard Nickiel Alexander-Walker.

All four players have Division I college scholarship offers.

The junior has received offers from Southern Cal, Illinois, Baylor, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati and UNLV.

News of Alexander-Walker’s decision to join the Hawks for the 2015-16 season was released by Corey Evans on his Twitter account.

The other three Canadians now with the Hawks are Abu Kigab, Shai Alexander and Therren Szmidt.

Earlier on Sunday, it was announced by Andre Whitehead of Tennessee Prep Hoops that Hamilton Heights center Abdul Ado is the state’s No.

1 basketball recruit in Tennessee. Others in the top five are Jaylen Fisher of Bolton, Jordan Bone of Ensworth, Dilion Mitchell of White Station and Nathan Hoover of Arlington.
