GA '17 QB looks to set up Nebraska visit

One 2017 quarterback in attendance at Nebraska's Georgia State satellite camp was Jadon Walker. The prospect looks to take unofficial visit to Lincoln this summer.

Nebraska was in Atlanta on Monday for their first satellite camp in the Mike Riley era and one prospect in attendance was Chapel Hill 2017 quarterback Jadon Walker.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect played at Lithia Springs high school (GA) last season, but will start at Chapel Hill in the fall.

“I feel like I did really well. I feel like it was a productive camp,” said Walker. “I received a letter from Nebraska during my 9th grade year telling me that they were looking at me and that I was on the prospect board. So when I found out the school was doing a joint camp with Georgia State, I wanted to go and meet the new staff in person.

“I talked to Coach (Mike) Riley. He gave me his email and told me we could set up an unofficial visit. I’m possibly going to go in July. I just have to figure out the details.”

Walker is currently being recruited by Purdue, Minnesota and NC State. Last season Lithia Springs struggled, finishing 1-9 on the year. Meanwhile, Chapel Hill wasn’t any better, going 0-11 during the season.

Walker hopes to help change that.

“I have the education to break down defenses. I’m a dual-threat, which means that if teams gear up to beat my passing game, I can always come back and show my ability to run,” said Walker. “ Last year I lead my team no matter how bad it is. I wasn’t with the best program, but I was fighting to the end.”

Walker hopes to find a program with a family atmosphere.

“I don’t want to go to a school just because they are good or have a good record. I want to feel at home,” said Walker. “So when I do leave from Georgia, even if it’s out of state, I feel like I’m home. So when I am away, it doesn’t feel different.”
