Walker Stands Out at MVP Camp

Xavier Walker, a prospect for the 2011 signee class, talks about recruiting and his performance at a football camp in Atlanta.

Duluth, Ga.--Xavier Walker, a tall safety with good closing speed, has one scholarship offer as a junior and is hoping for more after a strong performance at the Atlanta MVP Football Camp.

"I am going to get to as many camps as I can before the season starts," he says.

Checking in at 6-4, 190 pounds, the prospect from Duluth High School showed good coverage skills at the Atlanta MVP event at Georgia Tech that attracted prospects from around the Southeast.

"It was wonderful camp," Walker says. "I had fun coming out there competing with great athletes. It got me back in the mood getting ready for spring football. Now I am ready to lock it down for football."

A two-way player who also lines up at receiver, safety is his main position, but he adds, "I can play any position in the secondary."

Walker says he has a scholarship offer from the University of Virginia and is hearing from Clemson, South Carolina, Western Kentucky and others. He notes that he has received a letter from Auburn asking for more information.

At the MVP Camp he was clocked at 4.60 in the 40-yard dash. "My best time I have run is a 4.55," he says.

The junior says he is an "A-B student" who is interested in studying to be a teacher or a nurse in college.
