Walker Will Visit LSU

LSU has earned a reputation for developing receivers and sending them to the next level and that has some of the country's top wide outs taking a good hard look at the Tigers.

One wide out that is high on LSU's board and that is giving the Tigers a strong look is Christchurch (Va.) product Deion Walker.


Walker, a 6-3, 185-pounder with 4.45 speed, was sensational on both sides of the ball as a junior.


The Scout.com 4-star receiver finished with 47 receptions for 732 yards and eight touchdowns, along with 31 tackles and eight interceptions on defense.


LSU receivers coach D.J. McCarthy is recruiting Walker and the two have gotten pretty close throughout the recruiting process.


"I actually talked to coach Mac for about an hour on Friday," Walker told Tiger Rag. "I talk to a lot of coaches recruiting me and coach Mac is one that I probably talk to the most."


Not only is Walker developing a strong bond with McCarthy but so is someone else.


"He and my dad talk all the time and I think my dad is going to go down and work one of their camps in July," said Walker. "I want to go too but I'm not sure if we're going to be able to get a plane ticket for me too."


Walker may not camp at LSU in July but he will make a pass through Baton Rouge for an unofficial visit to LSU and several other colleges.


"Me and my dad are going to Las Vegas and we're going to visit Tennessee, Arkansas, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Colorado, and a few others," Walker said. "We're going to leave towards the end of June or early July and be gone about 10 days.It should be pretty interesting because we're going to be doing a lot of driving and seeing a lot of places."


Walker said that his drive across the country will go a long way towards helping him narrow his list.


"This trip should help a lot and will be able to help us set up my official," Walker said. "I really don't know where I will go on those visits but I should know by the end of summer."


With 40-plus scholarship offers to choose from, Walker said that he is still pretty wide open but he had this to say about LSU.


"LSU is a school that I'm really interested in and I feel like I know a good about them," he said. "When I talk to coach Mac we start off talking about football and how things are at LSU and then we talk about stuff outside of football. He seems like a real cool guy you can trust and you can tell he really likes it down at LSU."
