Cats are California Dreamin

The Kansas State staff in going into the state of California looking for a few good prospects and Sacramento Grant Union star LB- Reggie Walker has caught the attention of the Wildcat coaching staff. So much so that this two star rated OLB prospect has scheduled a visit to Manhattan for the 10th of December and claims a Wildcat scholarship offer.


"It is kinda weird, but Syd (Syd'Quan Thompson) is the one who really got me interested in Kansas State. He was telling me that he was going to go for a visit and then told the coaches about me and it just kind of took off from there."

Currently at 6-foot-3 and 223 pounds with legitimate 4.47 speed, Walker says he does not matter where he plays as long as he can get on the field. The Cats however, are recruiting him as a true linebacker and Walker says he will likely get a look at the weakside linebacking position.

"I really do not care what they put me. I would play center if I got on the field. Seriously. I would like to come in and compete for a spot though and maybe at least play on special teams or something. The K-State coaches are recruiting me at linebacker and I think they want me at the weakside."

As for his offer, Walker says he was offered a little over three weeks ago.

"I was talking with the coaches about three weeks ago when they offered. They knew I wanted to come in for a visit and you know Syd and I kinda want to look at some of the same schools and see if maybe that works out."

A first team all-league selection, Walker says the Kansas State tradition on defense is what really stands out to him the most.

"You know it really is all about their defense. I want top go somewhere that plays aggressive on D and they do that. They are always flying around somewhere and that is the thing that really stands out to me. They are Kansas State and everyone knows how they play on D."

As for school selections, Reggie says he would like to play with current teammate and four star rated CB- Syd'Quan Thompson and that they will be tripping to Manhattan together.

"We would like to go to school together but you know sometimes that does not happen. I guess we will take our visits and just see where it all ends up and what happens."

As for a timeframe, this fully qualified prospect says that distance and timeframes are not important in his decision to commit. What is important is finding the right environment.

"Distance is not really a thing with me. I mean I do not want to go somewhere where it is boring, it just depends on how the area is and if it is alright- no problem. I would commit on the spot if it was the right place. I mean I do not want to waste anyone's time and if it was the right place then I would commit right there and get that over with."

Reggie will trip to Manhattan on the 10th of December and then will visit Fresno State on the 17th. Already having close to ten offers thus far, Walker admits he is looking forward to visiting Manhattan and talking more with the coaching staff.

"I really just want to get down there and check everything out, talk with the coaches some more about my position and where they see me fitting in."

We will be checking back with Reggie following his visit to Manhattan.
