Walker says K-State a "perfect fit"

Quarterback or wide receiver? That's a decision Todd Walker has already made, but yet still a decision that could be made for him in the future. That being said, Walker wants to be a quarterback, and so does K-State, as of now.

Quarterback or wide receiver? That's a decision Todd Walker has already made, but yet still a decision that could be made for him in the future.

That being said, Walker wants to be a quarterback, and so does Kansas State, as of now.

"They've only mentioned quarterback to me," said Walker, who had 775 yards passing for 10 touchdowns and six interceptions last season.

K-State is just one of a slew of schools to have already offered the Pflugerville, Texas native. But the Wildcats are also one of just a handful of programs to have only talked quarterback.

Walker, who also had 872 rushing yards and eight ground scores last season, has tremendous speed at 4.33 and decent size at 6-foot-1 175, which has some thinking wide receiver or even cornerback. Walker did play corner as a sophomore.

"I want to play quarterback or course," he said. "I know I can do it. I don't I have a lot to prove to people. I've shown that I can play the position, but I also understand a lot depends on the offense and what the coaches are thinking for me."

In terms of K-State, it's the kind of offense Walker said would be a perfect fit for him.

"The things they've done with Ell Roberson and in the past with Michael Bishop are things I love to do," he said. "They way they run the option with the mobile quarterback and hurt teams deep with the pass. It's the kind of game I like to play."

Walker said K-State's leap of faith to proclaim him a quarterback came after K-State's offensive line coach Bob Stanley watched his spring game.

"He told me after the game that I am definitely a quarterback after watching me play in person," he said.

Walker also said that K-State told him it intends to go after two quarterbacks this season because Nick Patton failed to qualify academically.

But the decision to play quarterback or another position isn't the only thing that Walker is hedging a decision on—not the sole factor down the stretch, for a decision Walker said he plans to make before his senior season starts.

"It's just another thing for me to think about," he said. "I'm not basing my decision entirely on that. I want to play quarterback, but I want the best situation too and if that is to go somewhere where I can be comfortable and help the team win, then that's fine too, even if I'm not playing quarterback. I just want the chance to play quarterback wherever I go and if it doesn't work out, then fine."
