Walker is an outstanding overall athlete that not only excelled on the football field during his senior season, he also is the 2-time defending 300 meter hurdles champion in track.

After discussing his decision with his family, he chose the Tigers earlier today and called Coach O'Cain to confirm his decision around 10 o'clock this evening.

Walker's commitment could not have come at a better time, as head coach Tommy Bowden confirmed earlier on Tuesday that cornerback Brian Staley would not be able to enroll at Clemson this fall due to qualifying issues at Georgia Military.

Walker has excellent size and could play any one of several positions at the collegiate level, including quarterback, wide receiver, or even free safety.

Walker was not qualified on National Signing Day this past February and was unable to sign a Letter of Intent. He has since qualified and will arrive on campus this fall with other incoming freshmen from the 2003 class.

We will have more on Roy Walker's commitment, as we receive more information.
