The University of Louisville football landed a big piece to the defense for the future on Sunday morning.
Wesson, Miss., Copiah-Lincoln Community College cornerback Ronald Walker, who originally committed to Mississippi when he was in high school, gave the Cardinals his verbal commitment after making an official visit this weekend.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Walker and his father, Ronald Walker Sr., confirmed to Cardinal Authority that he committed before he left campus.
"It went so good that he committed," Walker Sr., said. "It was a great atmosphere and the coaches were great. They were straight up with us and for me it was more about the coaches not just talking football. They care about his avademics also. It was great."
Walker was also looking at Iowa State, Mississippi State, Arizona, Arizona State and Illinois among others. He attended Jackson, Miss., Callaway High School and was a top prospect in the state of Mississippi but ended up going the JUCO route.
In five games this season, Walker has 15 tackles, four pass break ups and one interception. He was wearing a boot on his right foot when he was seen at the Louisville-Syracuse game on Saturday.
He's being recruited by U of L cornerback coach Terrell Buckley.
"He's the guy who stole me," Walker Sr., said of Buckley. "He's a terrific guy, I just loved him. He's straight forward and he's honest and he just loves the game. He's a great guy."
Walker will have two years of eligibility left when he arrives on campus in January.
