Eyeing Junior Day visits

One of the top defensive backs in North Carolina has already taken one junior day visit this year. For now, he's considering at least two more.

CB Brian Walker Profile

Mallard Creek High School [Charlotte] junior Brian Walker has offers from Auburn, South Carolina, N.C. State and Minnesota. Clemson, Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina are expressing interest.

"I went to N.C. State [last Saturday]. I might be going to Tennessee and Clemson over the next couple of weeks," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.

The trip to Raleigh was his first junior day.

"It was a good experience. I got to spend some time with the coaches. I went with a few of my teammates," he said.

Walker's last trip to Clemson was for the Auburn game.

"All I can really remember was the crowd. I thought it was great. That was my first time going over there. I met some of the coaches after the game," he said. "It was a good experience. I would like to go back."

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound cornerback remains in contact with Clemson tight ends coach Danny Pearman.

"I talk to him here and there. I talked to him a couple of days ago about the junior day that's coming up," Walker said.

One thing in particular stands out about Clemson.

"I like the whole environment. They have a real close-knit -- how everything goes," Walker said.

Who leads?

"Right now, I wouldn't name a leader, but the schools that are kind of in my head the most on a daily basis. Auburn, they kind of stick out a little bit," he said. "But it would probably be South Carolina, right now."

Walker does not have a timeline for a decision.

As a junior at Mallard Creek, he had 30 tackles, 12 pass breakups and three interceptions.
