LB Chris Walker hopes to shorten list soon three-star linebacker Chris Walker have visited just about every school that has sent a scholarship offer his way, which included a trip to Louisville in April. Many of the nation's top programs are seeking the services of the Memphis, Tennessee prospect, who tells that he hopes to narrow his list of schools soon.

"I got back from Alabama about five minutes ago," three-star linebacker Chris Walker said on Wednesday evening. "It was a pretty good visit. I met Coach Shula and some of the other coaches, plus we checked out their weight room and academic facilities."

That's been the plan for the Memphis, Tennessee prospect throughout the recruiting process. If a school is interested enough to extend an offer, Walker attempts to return the favor with an unofficial visit.

"I'm still going to try to visit Miami and Michigan," Walker explained. "Those are the only two that have offered that I haven't visited."

In addition to his recent trip to Alabama, Walker has also visited Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Kentucky, Louisville, Memphis, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

The list of schools that have expressed strong interest in the 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker grows frequently, with his scholarship count now over two dozen strong.

"I'm going to try to make a cut before the start of my senior season," Walker told "I'm going to try to cut it down to six or seven schools."

While he isn't sure of all the school's that will make the early cut, he mentioned three that are almost certain to be among the group.

"Alabama, LSU and Tennessee - those three are the ones that stand out right now," he said. "I'm really interested in Louisville too. I really liked my visit when I was up there."

As a junior, Walker had 83 tackles, 10.5 for a loss, 4 sacks, and 9 caused fumbles, earning 1st Team All-State honors.

"Last year we came up a little bit short in the state championship, so we hope to get back there and do better this year," said Walker. "I just want to do whatever I can to help our team win."

Walker's Christian Brothers High School team will open its season August 19 in the annual Bridges Kickoff Classic held at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.
