CB Brian Walker Profile

Mallard Creek High School cornerback Brian Walker last visited Clemson for the Auburn game.

"It was pretty good. I learned a lot of new things down there," he told CUTigers about the Junior Day trip. "It was my second time. It wasn't for a game, but I did go to a basketball game. I got to see the education part and all of that."

What stood out to the 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect?

"What they pretty much stand for. When the chaplain spoke, things like that. What they're trying to do with their program and school," he said.

Walker also hit N.C. State for a junior day. He'll also visit North Carolina, and possibly Tennessee and Wake Forest.

Auburn, South Carolina, N.C. State, North Carolina, Virginia and Minnesota have offered. He thinks Tennessee could be next.

Earlier this week, Walker updated his list of favorites.

"Right now, I would have to say [UNC] is No. 2 behind NC State," Walker said in an interview with Inside Carolina. "NC State, I talk to them on a daily basis. Coach [Tom] O'Brien comes up to the school regularly and talks to me and Marquez [North] about coming down there and seeing what it's about – I've been down there two or three times. I have a pretty good relationship with them.

"For Carolina, I just like Coach [Larry] Fedora's personality. He's real energetic. He seems like he's changing things around there. Plus I know a player there, Marquise Williams, and he tells me good things."

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