Noles Have Eyes On Texas CB

With Florida State losing four cornerbacks within the next two years due to graduation, landing two to three cornerbacks will most likely be a huge priority for the class of 2004. The Seminole coaching staff is hard at work and one player in that appears to be on their radar scope is <b>Marcus Walker</b> from Waco (TX).

"Some of the schools that I'm considering are Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Florida State and LSU," Walker, who checks in at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds with 4.45 40-yard dash speed, said.

This summer he called all the teams he's considering, including Florida State.

"I called Coach Steele and we just talked about how I fit into the program," he said. "A&M and Florida State both run man-press coverage which fit's well with my style."

Speaking of style The would compare his style to current Seminole Bryant McFadden but Walker had another cornerback in mind.

"I think my style is a lot like Deon Sanders," he said. "Florida State was my favorite team growing up."

The last few years, teams from the Big 12 have done a nice job of keeping the local kids from straying away from the Southwest. Will this Texan stay home or will he be willing to leave the area?

"Like most kids I wouldn't mind staying close to home," he said. "But my family tells me that I need to grow into a man and I need go to where the best fit is for me. I'm going to look into depth charts and environments of schools. I'm going to go someplace that's a good fit for me."

Walker, who is on track to qualify academically, will take all of his official visits after his season is over.
