Waco CB Talks Noles

<b>Marcus Walker</b>, The Insiders.com No 5 ranked cornerback in the country, grew up a big-time Florida State fan. This weekend, the Waco (TX) native took his first official visit to Florida State to watch his childhood favorite take on North Carolina State. Did his visit live up to expectations?

It did more than that, "the 5-foot-11 and 185 pound defensive back with 4.5 seconds said. "I would rate my trip a 10. I liked everything. Florida State was my favorite since I was a little kid."

On his visit he got the opportunity to meet the entire coaching staff, the players and several recruits.

"I liked Coach Andrews, Bowden, Steele and all of them," he said. "The players were great. They made me feel like it was home. Cro (Cromartie) was my host. I got to hang out with Ernie Sims, Pat Watkins, Fluellen, Bryant McFadden and a whole bunch of them. I also talked with Abbott, the offensive lineman from Missouri, Carter and Weatherford."

Walker will also make official visits to Arkansas, Texas A&M, LSU and Oklahoma before making a decision sometime in January.

Going into the visit Walker has claimed to be open. Has that changed?

"I'm still open," he said. "But I can tell you that the Noles have moved up whole lot. They're up there."
