Talia Walton of Federal Way has made an oral commitment to play basketball of Washington, coach Danny Graham confirms.
As a 6-foot-1 junior last year, the athletic Walton averaged 12.8 points and 11.8 rebounds. She is a key reason the Eagles should be a state contender this season. Walton was part of the 2008-09 team that placed third in the 4A state tournament.
Federal Way was ranked No. 1 to open the 2009-10 campaign, but wound up going 1-2 at state as a couple of key players were either injured or left the team for personal reasons.
