LSU/Tennessee battle for Walker

Standout linebacker Chris Walker (6-4, 215, 4.6) is focusing on two schools and he'll get to see them both in action this weekend in Knoxville when LSU travels to play Tennessee.

"These are just the two teams that I feel the most comfortable with at this point," said Chris Walker. "I'm comfortable with the coaching staffs. I really like both head coaches, too."


Walker said he thinks that LSU's defense is the more aggressive style of defense, noting last year's Peach Bowl showing against Miami.


"I talked to coach Porter and he was just saying how they blitzed like the first 11 plays of that game," said Walker. "LSU's defense is a lot more aggressive. That's the way I like to play."



Walker said that he doesn't plan on cheering for one team or the other come Saturday, but that he'll be too busy paying attention to how each defense responds to a good offense.


"I like certain things about each school that make them different, that's why it's a harder decision," said Walker. "I'll just be sitting and observing on Saturday. I'm going to be looking at the style of defense the linebackers play. I want to see who lets the linebackers loose to just go out and make plays."


Walker said at this point he is talking to coach Les Miles and Tennessee coach Philip Fulmer on a weekly basis.


"I text messaged coach Porter last night and we just kind of talked about the game plan and what I should be watching for from LSU's side," said Walker.


Walker said neither team has talked bad about the other in regards to recruiting him and that both teams are using the same types of angles to try and woo him.


"They are both really saying the same thing, that I'll have a chance of playing early and stuff like that," said Walker.
