One of the most talented wide-outs in the country, Deion Walker (6'3, 185, 4.45) spoke to TigerRag.com recently about his rehab and his future plans at the next level.
"I've been doing
pretty good," said Walker. "We lost last week by two
touchdowns, but we had two touchdowns called back for penalties. In that
game I had about 70 yards rushing along with a 101 interception return for a
touchdown. I also returned a punt for a touchdown, but that was one of the
touchdowns that was called back.
"I felt pretty good
out there," Walker added. "I was probably playing at
about 90-percent. It was the first time I played at full speed since the
first game of the season. Then I was playing both ways so it kind of took its
toll on me."
The 5-star wide
receiver informed TigerRag he has been watching some college football lately
with a focus on one team in
"I watched the LSU vs.
Florida game a couple of weeks back,"
"It was a really good game. I really liked coach [Les] Miles' play calling
towards the end of the game too. He made some big time calls and they paid
off. With me, it is play big or go
"I didn't see the
LSU vs. Kentucky game, but I did see a few
of the highlights and the final score," Walker continued. "I wasn't too surprised
though because college football is so unpredictable. Anything can happen on any
day. I was kind of expecting LSU to lose one game due to the
schedule they have to play week in and week out. They took Kentucky to 3
overtimes so they kept fighting to the end and that just shows you what
kind of team they have."
Scout.com's No. 9
ranked receiver said he would really like to catch an LSU game in person this
season, but his team's schedule along with LSU's schedule will probably
prevent that from happening.
"It's going to be hard
for me to make it to Baton Rouge for a LSU game
this season because of scheduling," Walker said. "I'd like to take an official
visit to LSU after my season though.
"So far I've taken
official visits to Penn
St. and to Florida St," Walker said. "I have
another official lined up with Notre Dame for November 3rd when they play Navy.
Other than those 3, I do not know when or where my next official will
Walker said he had heard
rumors that he supposedly had made a list of top teams, but claimed that
simply was not true.
"Someone had named a
few schools and asked if I was interested in them and I said yes because
I was and I still am," Walker explained. "I didn't say those were my
top 10 or top 5 or whatever. Right now I am considering a bunch
Is LSU a part of that
"LSU is a part of that
group," Walker replied. "I like their team
and I have a pretty good relationship with coach [D.J.] McCarthy. I
spoke with him a couple of days ago. We talked about normal stuff. He asked
if I was healthy and wanted to know what was going on with my rehab and things
"I should have my mind
made up as far as where I want to go to school sometime in December," Walker
Note: Walker finished his junior season with 47
receptions for 732 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, he had 31 tackles
and eight interceptions. The Christchurch High
School product reported a 3.2 core GPA from last
school year and recorded a 21 on the ACT.
