Walker is a top-notch athlete who has the ability to excel on either side of the ball on the collegiate level. And he has the scholarship offers to prove it. In fact, he has so many that when asked to name the schools that have extended offers, he could name a few, but not all.

"I have offers from Memphis, Ole Miss, Auburn, Nebraska, Iowa, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State - that's all I can remember," said Walker.

During the past few interviews, he has named schools such as Florida, LSU, Nebraska and Ole Miss as his top four. However, when asked to name a top five or six, he said they are, "probably, Florida, LSU, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Iowa and Mississippi State."

What are his thoughts about Mississippi State?

"I know they have (head) Coach (Sylvester) Croom coaching down there," said Allen. "We talked to him at (MSU's) Junior Day. I liked how he is home-grown. It seems like he comes from Mississippi, just like me. I have heard that he is working real hard to get Mississippi State where it needs to be. He is trying to recruit the best players."

While Coach Croom is looking for the best players, what is Walker looking for in the college he will ultimately choose?

Walker quickly said, "I want to go somewhere where I don't have to sit out as a freshman."

With the Mississippi State coaching staff searching far and wide for wide receivers talented enough to come in and play immediately, they sound like a school that definitely fits Walker's criteria.
