Walker Is a Husky

Call it tit for tat. Days after losing a recruiting battle to WSU for DB Daquawn Brown, Washington stepped up their game to pluck a former Cougar commit. Trevor Walker, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety prospect from Timberview High School in Mansfield, Tex. verbally committed to the Huskies Friday over Vanderbilt and Ole Miss during a press conference at his high school.

Rated the No. 62 safety in the country by Scout.com, Walker's recruitment blew up after verbally committing to Washington State at the end of April. By the time of Friday's announcement Scout.com had Walker with 21 scholarship offers. Both Arizona and Washington schools had offered Walker, as well as schools like Boise State, Houston, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Purdue and San Diego State.

Walker, who is graduating from high school in December, is expected to enroll at Washington for winter quarter. He is the 21st known public verbal commit for the Huskies.

We'll have more on Walker's commit as FoxSportsNEXT's Erin Hartigan was at the press conference.
