Upcoming Visit Crucial To Tigers' Chances

With a decision looming, Landon Walker will make an unofficial visit to Clemson. The visit will likely determine if the Tigers can overtake the Pack. CUTigers.com has all the details in this recruiting update.

The Dawgs are the latest team to join the hunt for one of North Carolina's top linemen. "Georgia came by the school this week. They want to take a look at my film," Walker told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked about his current favorites, Walker responded, "I would have to put North Carolina State, North Carolina and Clemson as my leaders. They are my top three schools right now."

If the prize recruit had to decide today, the Wolfpack would get the nod. "I might give State the lead right now because that is the place where I know all of the coaches. Coach Amato has been down here two times. I know the coaches at State real well. If I was to select State today, I know I would fit in there. But I want to checkout Clemson and Georgia and make sure I'm not missing out on anything."

The Tigers will get their chance to take the lead for the East Wilkes standout when he takes an unofficial visit to Clemson in the next few weeks. "I am planning on going to Clemson next week, not this coming week. I am going to take a day off school. I will be going down with my coach and my dad."

Georgia may have the final opportunity to impress Walker. "I am also planning to go down to Athens I think. I am not sure about a date yet."

A commitment should come over the next three to four weeks for the talented lineman. "I am still planning to have a decision before the end of May. I want to visit Clemson and maybe Georgia. Then I should be ready to have a decision."

What will be the most important factors when Walker selects his school? "Right now I would have to say the most important thing is how the football program will do. I want to go where they care about the players. I want to go where they take care of the players off the field, not just treat them as football players. I want to go somewhere with a good environment and a nice atmosphere," replied Walker.
