Walker Jones keeps reeling in the offers
"Duke offered me today," said Walker Jones. "I have been talking to coach Collins, the linebackers coach. I spoke with coach Jones today. He told me to call him. I gave him a call. He told me what they have to offer. He told me they wanted to offer me.
"It's awesome to get an offer from Duke. It's one of the most prestigious academic schools in the nation. I feel like it's a great opportunity. Coach Cutcliffe is a good coach. I feel like he has the program heading in the right direction."
Jones also added scholarship offers in the past few days from Arkansas and Wake Forest.
"Arkansas offered me this weekend," Jones said. "It was awesome. They are one of the best teams in the SEC. They have a great program. They have an unbelievable campus. Their facilities are second to none. It's a great football program. It's really exciting to get an offer from them.
"I spoke to coach Lobotzke from Wake Forest. He came to my school a few weeks ago. He took my film back for the other coaches to see it. They said they loved my film. They want me to get up there for a visit. Wake Forest is obviously another school with great academics."
The talented prospect has 13 scholarship offers with many more projected such as Arizona State, Ohio State and Stanford.
"I am pretty much in constant contact with coach Groh [Alabama], coach Mirando [Mississippi State], coach Hinshaw [Tennessee], coach Gattis from Vandy and coach Horton from Arkansas. The schools are trying to build a relationship with me and see how I fit in at their school."
The Alabama coaching staff has talked with Jones about the possibility of playing offense. A couple of other schools have the same thoughts.
"Vanderbilt and Arkansas have both said something to me about offense," Jones said. "It's basically a decision for me to make once I get to the school."
Jones does not list any favorites at this time. Academics are a high priority with medical school in his future plans off the gridiron.
