"A good education, a nice community, and playing time is very important," said Walker.

Walker has taken unofficial visits to San Diego and UCLA. "I'm also supposed to visit San Diego State on an unofficial," said Walker.

We asked Walker if he has given any thought to where he'd like to take his official visits.

When asked if he has a timeframe for choosing a school, Walker said, "I'd like to decide by the end of my junior year or the start of my senior year."
