Make no mistake about it, Colorado State is hitting the Peach State hard in recruiting. The Rams have targeted countless prep and junior college prospects native to Georgia and another recruit was added to the list last week.
Jadon Walker a 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete from Douglasville (Ga.) Chapel Hill, received his seventh offer from CSU on Thursday from Rams tight ends coach and Georgia area recruiter Joe Cox.
While the offer may be new, Walker has already taken a keen liking to the Rams.
“A lot... I have a lot of interest in them. They're definitely in my top three,” Walker said. “As of now, it's Colorado State, Navy and Air Force.”
CSU joined Air Force, Army, Eastern Kentucky, Fordham, Georgetown, and Navy in offering Walker. The service academies have targeted Walker to play quarterback in their option offenses, but the Rams are planning a different use for him in their varied prostyle offense.
“Coach Cox just told me that the coaching staff decided they wanted to offer,” Walker said. “He said the wide receivers coach and the DB coach really like me to play both sides, so they're offering me as an athlete. They see me more so as an edge athlete, so either both sides of the ball, or one or the other.”
Most prep quarterbacks desire to continue playing quarterback at the next level, but that's not necessarily the case with Walker.
“I don't have a preferred position,” Walker said.
Walker will take his official visits after the season concludes. No dates have been scheduled, but one school for sure will receive an official visit from the electrifying athlete.
“Definitely Colorado State. As of now, that is my only one,” he said.
While CSU is located a fair distance from home, Walker still knew about the program growing up, as former Rams standout defensive back Myron Terry shared his sentiments toward his alma mater with Walker.
“My friend's dad (Terry) played at Colorado State, so he's talked to us many times about the program. So I've always kind of had an interest in Colorado State ever since my middle school years.”
Walker anticipates announcing a commitment in January. In seven games this year, he has passed for 897 yards with six touchdowns and seven interceptions, while rushing for 714 yards and eight more scores.
