Walker talks commitment

San Diego Madison wide receiver Lee Walker has made the decision to commit to Arizona. Read on for the reason why, if he will recruit his teammates to Arizona, and more.

Arizona hosted three unofficial visitors on Monday and Tuesday and it is already paying off, as 6-foot-0, 160-pound San Diego Madison wide receiver Lee Walker has made his commitment.

"I chose Arizona because it is close to home and I can see myself starting there and making a legacy and carving my own path," Walker said. "It is also a good school and good football program with good academic support. It looks like a school that is big on supporting its students and players and has a good tradition also."

Out of all the coaches that he talked to, Walker says that he formed the best relationship with Rich Rodriguez.

"Rodriguez really knows what he is talking about and he is a cool coach, but he is also tough," Walker said. "You can tell he wants you to compete and succeed."

When asked if he could choose one aspect of the visit that impressed him the most, Walker struggled due to the overall impression he got.

"Honestly there is just so much," he said. "Everything they showed us was impressive. Their weight room was impressive and they talked about upgrading it, which blew me away.

"I did not see the dorms, but they showed us pictures and it was real nice. There is a lot of new stuff that is being put in and I want to be one of the first players to use it."

Walker came on the visit with highly regarded teammate Pierre Cormier and 2014 running back Michael Garner. While he would like for them to come to Arizona, Walker was hesitant to say that he would be pushing them.

"It would be nice of them to come and obviously I will talk good about Arizona to them," he said. "At the end of the day though it is their choice and they have to do what they want and what makes them the most comfortable."
