Saying there was a lot of hype surrounding Valparaiso’s four newcomers this season would be a bit of an overstatement. That said, there was still excitement about some of the new players and the impact they’d be able to make this year.
Tevonn Walker and Max Joseph came from Canada with good credentials and high praise from coaches who had seen them play in person. Darien Walker was once a Valparaiso recruit before spending two years in junior college and the Chicago native was bringing in a strong high school background.
The one player that seemed to be a true mystery was freshman forward David Skara.
