Cardinal trio visit L.T. Walker

With signing day rapidly approaching, three Louisville assistants made the school's final in-home visit with four-star defensive tackle prospect L.T. Walker on Wednesday night.

With his official visits now in the past, four-star defensive tackle prospect L.T. Walker is now beginning the process of making his college decision. The 6-foot-3, 308-pound lineman has seen all of his favorites up close, taking visits to Ole Miss, Louisville, Memphis and Tennessee.

By the end of today, coaches from those school's will have all made there final presentations in the Walker home. Louisville stopped by on Wednesday evening, while Ole Miss visits his Wynne, Arkansas home tonight.

"Ole Miss comes [Thursday] and that's the last one," he said of the visits, adding that he enjoyed his last visit with a trio of Cardinal assistants.

"It went fine," he said of his time with U of L assistants Reggie Johnson, Joe Whitt Jr., and Kevin Wolthausen. "They were hear for about an hour or so – we talked about a bunch of different things really."

Following tonight's visit with Ole Miss, L.T. and his parents will begin the process of choosing the best school, with academics being the most important factor.

"Academics is first," he explained. "I want to go somewhere that I know that I'd have a good career at and feel comfortable. Four years is a long time and it's a big part of your life, so I want to make sure I make the right decision."

That decision could be made as early as tomorrow.

"I'll probably do it this Friday," he said of making his decision. "It's between four schools. It's Louisville, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Memphis. They're all even right now. All of the school's have great programs, so it'll just be how comfortable I am with the school."

However, while his mind may be made and the coaches from the school may know, Walker says that he might just hold onto his announcement until signing day, when his school holds a press conference for the official signings.

"I might not say who it is until signing day," he said.

As a senior at Wynne (Ark.) High School, Walker recorded 64 tackles, 5 sacks and an interception, helping to lead his team to the Class AAAA state title.
