Nebraska visits Mallard Creek

Mallard Creek high school in North Carolina is loaded with Division I talent this year, so Nebraska assistant Terry Joseph stopped by the school on Monday.

Mallard Creek high school (NC) cornerback Brian Walker committed to North Carolina in March, but it hasn't stopped teams from recruiting him, even new programs.

On Tuesday, West Virginia offered him a scholarship. This was a day after Nebraska's Terry Joseph came to town to learn more about the prospect.

"Nebraska hasn't offered yet," said Walker when asked if he was interested in the program. "Possibly, I really don't know what defensive system they run."

Walker (5-foot-9, 168 pounds) is currently the No. 45 cornerback in the country. Before committing to North Carolina, he had offers from Auburn, Minnesota, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

"I listen to what any coach has to say, but it doesn't really go with the visiting and other further means," said Walker. "Right now UNC is the only school that I'm going to be visiting."

Mallard Creek is loaded with talent in the 2013 class and Nebraska is not just interested in Walker. Marquez North is a 6-foot-3, 210 pound wide receiver who is currently ranked the No. 12 in the country after finding the end zone 24 times last season. His offer list is an impressive one, with a total approaching 20.

"He has the size of top college wideouts right now," said Fox Sports recruiting analyst Chad Simmons. "He has very good speed, so good it may surprise some, and he is a real threat down the field."

Anthony Convington is a 6-foot, 200 pound corner is who is currently a three-star prospect. The junior's offer list includes schools like Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, among others.

Other prospects at Mallard Creek include guard Tevin Lawshe (No. 61 in the country), Jay Horton, and Jorian Jordan-Brown.
