Zach Walker Remains Patient

Johnson County wide receiver Zach Walker is a player that a lot of schools have started to notice. The 6' ½" 175 pound senior is working hard in preseason to get ready to showcase his hard work this off season. Several schools including Georgia Tech have begun to evaluate this talented player and he is eagerly awaiting offers.

Zach Walker is beginning to hear from schools as he prepares for his senior season. "Georgia Tech is recruiting me hard right now along with Middle Tennessee State, and Georgia State," said Walker. The Georgia Tech coaches said they would be evaluating me during the upcoming evaluation period. Walker is hearing from other schools but not as much as he's hearing from Georgia Tech.

The schools talking to Walker are telling him to be patient. "If they like what they see during the early part of the evaluation period, an offer could be coming my way." Walker will be working hard to show what he can do. He will be evaluated in the same manner that all recruits are during the September to November period.

Georgia Tech is one school that interests Walker. "Bay Bay Thomas proved that if you work hard you can be productive in their offense and make it to the NFL." Walker knows that his success will depend on his hard work and not the offense. "I definitely could see myself playing at Georgia Tech."

Walker is not a stranger to the Tech campus. "I've been to some camps both this year and last year and made a couple of visits." Walker plans on staying in contact with the coaches as much as possible. "They will do whatever the NCAA allows to stay in contact with me and I will also go up there to some games this year." Walker is being recruited by his recruiting coach Mike Sewak and he has also talked to some of the other coaches.

One thing immediately comes to mind for Walker when deciding on a school. "I want a good education and a good degree." Walker is also looking for a school that has a good football program and tradition.

Walker presently has two offers. "Both Georgia State and Southeast Louisiana have offered me." He is hoping that once the season starts coaches will see how much he's improved and that will lead to more offers. "I have good hands and secure the ball once I catch it." Walker is working on getting bigger and stronger. "I'm also working on my speed," said Walker. "I run a 4.5 forty and I feel I can improve on that as I get stronger."

Walker is waiting until signing day to make his decision. He wants to see who will be offering. "If the right offer comes along, I might make a decision then."
