California JUCO defensive back looks to contribute right away for spring ball

City College of San Francisco,CA, Community College Safety prospect, Kenronte Walker 6'1" 210lbs 4.5 40, spoke with ShowMeMizzou.com shortly after his commitment to the Missouri Tigers.

The talented defensive back talked about his visit and what led him to choose the Tigers as his college destination.

" I arrived on Friday and it was real cool." Walker said. "They showed me around the facilities and school. I was hosted by Josh Tatum and hung out with Jarrell Harrison, both who I played with last year at San Francisco. It was good to se them."

"We had a great dinner and hung out. The next day we watched practice and after seeing everything that I saw I knew Missouri was where I wanted to be so I committed on Saturday night."

Walker, who recorded 39 tackles and 4 pass break-ups this past season for an 11- team, echoed a recurring theme among recruits.

" I felt the friendship among the team and whole coaching staff. It just seemed like family and a great place to be. It wasn't a hard decision to make."

Kenronte Walker will sign his LOI soon and transfer in to Missouri at the semester break.

He was recruited to play Safety, but has the ability to play cornerback as well.

"I can play both spots and I will play wherever I can help the team most."'
