Drafted in the first round of the 2023 NBA draft, Jarace Walker was the 8th pick overall. But the star quality that coaches picked up on didn’t happen overnight. Born in Baltimore, it wasn’t long until Jarace Walker’s passion for basketball connected him to Under Armour. Walker would become a part of Under Armour’s premier grassroots basketball program—the Under Armour Next UAA circuit—and lead Team Thrill to victory for four years. Later, he attended IMG Academy, an Under Armour-sponsored high school, and worked hard to better himself on and off the court. Most recently, Jarace shared his skills and expertise with the next generation of basketball athletes as a leader and coach at the 2023 Under Armour Elite 24 event.

“It’s not often that we get the privilege to work with an athlete from day one and see them rise to every challenge. We’re thrilled to have Jarace continue to represent what it means to be an Under Armour athlete."
