Western Kentucky hosted several in-state prospects on their most recent Junior Day. One of those prospects was St. Xavier running back Charles Walker. Walker talked with FOX Sports Next about his trip.

"I did (go to Western Kentucky)," Walker said. "I went with B.J. Nagle, my new quarterback. I met with (teammates) Austin Davis, Austin Askin, Ryan Karrer and John Kurtz there. I had a great visit," he said.

Walker was impressed with the new coaching staff at Western Kentucky and he was already familiar with some of the coaches.

"I enjoyed the campus and the coaches were great. They have a great staff. I talked to coach Nochta, who I spoke to at Purdue's camp last summer. He's great. Their running back coach is great as well. His name is Kolby Smith. He played in the NFL and knows his football well," Walker continued.

Walker was delayed a little bit getting to campus due to some traffic incidents, but one member of the Hilltopper coaching staff said that they would be by St. Xavier during spring practice.

"Coach Jeff Brohm said he was going to attend some of our spring practices. Maybe I can show him my talent then," Walker said.

Walker is planning on going to a few camps in the coming weeks, including the Nike Football Training Camp and is also contemplating a trip to Vanderbilt before spring break.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound back rushed for 1148 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior in 12 games. He's one of the leading candidates for Mr. Football this upcoming season.
