OL Landon Walker Profile

Landon Walker, one of the top offensive linemen in North Carolina and a current Clemson verbal commitment has been a frequent visitor to Death Valley this season.

Last week, he made a trip down to see the Tigers' 52-7 win over North Carolina.

"It was a great game," he said. "I came up with my mom, dad, sister and brother. I left in the third quarter because it was such blowout. I will be going back down this week. I am coming with two of my coaches and my dad."

Not surprisingly, Walker has been doing his best to help the Tigers' 2007 recruiting efforts.

"I talked with Ryan Houston this past weekend. I said a few things to him. I told him he should join me at Clemson. I have also been keeping in touch with Willy. We talk about once a week."

Landon's father, who played for the Tigers national championship team, is enjoying spending more time in Death Valley.

"You know he hasn't been down as much as he has this year," Walker said. "He loves going down there."

Walker has also decided he's going to try to enroll at Clemson this January instead of waiting until next summer.

"I decided that just a few weeks ago," he said. "I talked with the coaches. The said they are running low on tackles. They told me that if I come in and do half of what they think I can that I could get some playing time next year."

Walker added that he is trying to be a leader this season for East Wilkes.

"It is going good so far," Walker said. "We are 3-3 on the year. I think I am doing well. I am playing my best and doing what I can to be a leader on the team."
