Nebraska Verbal Now Considering Auburn

Wide receiver prospect Dominic Walker discusses his official visit to check out the Auburn Tigers.

Orlando, Fla.--Wide receiver Dominic Walker's teammate, Tony Stevens, visited Auburn this weekend and switched his commitment to the Tigers from Texas A&M.

Asked if he is interested in doing the same thing, Walker said Coach Gus Malzahn's Tigers are definitely under serious consideration in addition to the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

"I will probably finally make up mind in the next week because both teams are supposed to be making in-home visits so I guess I will see how those go and what they are talking about," said the three-star prospect from Evans High School.

"Nebraska is supposed to be coming in on Monday and the Auburn coaches are talking about coming in on Tuesday or Thursday," the 6-1, 194-pound wide receiver said.

Commenting on his visit to Auburn, Walker said, "It was good. Everything went as planned. It was better than I thought (it would be). The players, the coaching staff, the city, the college end--the college feel, the atmosphere. It feels similar to home. It is not that cold--about the same degrees as Auburn."

While saying he still considers himself committed to Nebraska, commenting on Auburn, Walker said, "They are just about up there with Nebraska. It is probably going to come down between those two. I am committed to Nebraska still--nothing has changed--but Auburn is a great consideration.

"I am going to evaluate everything and see the statistics between Auburn and Nebraska on how much they throw the ball and see how I fit in," he added.

Stevens noted that having his teammate, Tony Stevens, commit to the Tigers helps Auburn's cause with him.

"He was telling me we should both come here and it would be just like high school days--we could take over," said Walker, who put the odds of the two playing together in college at between 50 to 75 percent.

The high school senior said he is not planning to take any more recruiting visits and he should have his final decision on a college choice soon.
