SEC commit sets other visit

Dominic Walker is a talented wide receiver prospect from Evans High in Orlando and Scout caught up with him to discuss the latest.

Dominic Walker made a commitment to Vanderbilt back in late June, after landing over a dozen BCS scholarship offers. Despite that pledge, several other schools have continued to recruit the talented receiver.

"I am still looking at other schools and talking to them," Walker said. "They are Nebraska, Illinois, Louisville, Penn State, Purdue, UCF, USF, Cincinnati, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and a couple more. They say what things they think I can bring to their program and how I'd be a great fit."

Walker, 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, has two official visits in mind and one that's already been scheduled.

"Cincinnati and Nebraska and that's all I know for sure right now," he said. "I'm still considering what other two I'm gonna go to."

Walker talked about what he likes about the two other schools he plans on visiting.

"Cincinnati has a great coaching staff and a good campus and a good player bond," he said. "And they have an opportunity to play as a true freshman. I went to their camp and dominated and was the best performer."

" "Nebraska, I like what I hear but I've never seen the campus or anything so I wanna see what it feels like going to their game against Wisconsin on September 28th."

Despite his interest in the Bearcats and Huskers, Walker remains committed to Vanderbilt.

"Great coaching staff, awesome head coach, great campus, nice academics, SEC, located in a wonderful city, and there's always gonna be something to do while I'm down there," he said when asked what he likes most about them.

Walker is a talented wide receiver prospect who finished his junior season with 28 catches for 496 yards and five touchdowns.

As a Prospect: Walker is one of two BCS-caliber wide receiver at Evans High (Tony Stevens is the other) for the 2013 class. He has ideal size, good athleticism, and he put up good production numbers on the field as a junior in 2011. He is one of the premier wide receiver prospects in the greater central Florida area for the 2013 class.
