MLS SuperDraft 2022 Reshaun Walkes

Reshaun Walkes – Striker for the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Brampton-born striker Reshaun Walkes has been an absolute phenom at the NCAA level, scoring 14 goals in 25 appearances in Texas after bagging an immense 29 goals in 30 appearances at the NJCAA level with Lewis & Clarke Community College.

The six-foot-one striker really upped his game for his final RGV campaign, where he not only contributed nine goals in 17 appearances but provided seven assists along the way, too. Walkes has also kept busy at the USL2 level, helping the Des Moines Menace to a playoff run this season and assisting himself with a unique chip-to-header goal along the way. A physically imposing striker with a knack for good goal conversion, there’s a lot of potential for a target man in Walkes.

Before enrolling in Texas, he spent time with League1 Ontario outfit Master’s FA, bagging six goals in 17 appearances through the 2018-2019 seasons, the latter of which saw Master’s FA hoist the league title for the first time ever.

For comparison’s sake, Valour FC forward William Akio enjoyed a breakout year in the CPL after wrapping up his time with RGV, where he had scored 18 goals in 40 appearances before going on to score eight goals in 28 league appearances in his rookie CPL season. Walkes is represented by FutureStars Sports, who currently represent York United’s Lowell Wright.
