Now that Humble lost to district rival Nimitz High 31-28 this weekend, John Walker will have more time to focus on recruiting. The 6-1, 205 pound senior had interest from programs like Baylor and Syracuse early in the summer, but he decided to come in on a visit to UL for the Florida Atlantic game.
"Early on this spring and summer, I had interest from Baylor and Syracuse,' said Walker. "I camped at Baylor during the summer, but I haven't had as much interest from either school this fall. I've been in contact with mostly state schools this fall, like Texas San Antonio, Texas State, Lamar, Louisiana and McNeese State."
Cajun defensive line coach Gerald Broussard stopped by Humble during practice this fall and invited Walker to come down to Lafayette and visit the Louisiana campus.
"Coach Broussard called me several times to come in for a game and I was able to work things out for the Florida Atlantic game," John stated. "Coach had come by and visited last month, and I had never been down to the university or a football game in Lafayette."
What was Walker's experience on the visit at Louisiana?
"I really like the coaches and the facilities," said Walker. "This is definitely a program that has some good things to offer for student athletes. The indoor facility was impressive and I enjoyed talking to some of the players."
Walker is a good student and was a recent nominee for the Humble Community "Rudy Award", given to local high school athletes for their work in the community.
"I scored a 17 on my first ACT test, but I'm scheduled for my second test this month," John stated. "I've worked hard on my grades, maintaining a 3.0 GPA currently in my core courses.
