Maryland the Leader for PA DE

Kurtis Walker lists Maryland as his number one school.

After collecting six football commitments from the class of 2011 since the beginning of March, Maryland might be getting closer to another one. Philipsburg-Osceola Area (Philipsburg, PA) defensive end Kurtis Walker considers Maryland as his top school.

“They're definitely the top school for me right now. When I went down there they were treating me real well and they seemed interested and the facilities were good, so they're definitely the leader right now.”

Walker visited Maryland back in November, and he will be coming back to Maryland for a junior day soon. So far, Walker hasn't been on any official visits or junior days yet, but he plans on visiting a few schools along with Maryland. “I've gotten invited to almost everyone's junior day, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.”

Contact with Maryland has been pretty smooth lately. “I've been getting a lot of letters in the mail. I'm going to their junior day on Saturday. In November, I went for a visit and talked to Coach Lempa and Coach Sollazzo for a little bit. They were talking about getting tape to them and summer camp and things like that.”

As for the summer, Walker knows he's at least coming to Maryland's camp. “I'm definitely going to Maryland [summer camp]. We'll see as the spring evaluation period goes what camps I'll be going to. I've got invitations to everywhere.” So far, Walker lists his top school as Maryland, with Boston College, NC State, and Ohio University rounding out the top four.

So far, Walker hasn't received any scholarship offers. Whenever he makes a decision, it will be based mainly on three factors. “My first thing I'm looking at is what they offer me academically. The second thing is the relationship with the coaching staff. The third thing is, on the playing field, the opportunity to get in early.”
