Wide receiver Deion Walker holds nearly 35 scholarship offers and he was at NC State recently for the Pack's spring game.

The 6-3, 185-pound prospect from Christchurch, Va. runs the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds and has now been to Raleigh multiple times. What does he think of NC State?

"I was down there a couple of weeks ago and had just a great time," said Walker, rated a four star prospect by Scout.com. "I spent a lot of time with Rashad Phillips. He's a freshman there from Virginia. We got along really well. The spring game was a lot of fun and I was impressed with what I saw. Everybody was really psyched about that afterwards.

"The biggest thing in NC State's favor right now is how comfortable they've made me feel every time I'm there. They definitely go out of their way to make you feel at home, and that's what it feels like. I like the environment there too. It helps that I know a lot of people down in North Carolina, and I know several people at NC State."

While that all sounds great for the Wolfpack, Walker is keeping his options open. Since visiting NC State two weeks ago he has received offers from Florida State, Cal, Oregon and Washington State.

"I've got 31 or 32 offers from schools to play wide receiver and one or two to play safety," he said. "I really don't care, as long as I can get on the field.

"Right now I'm probably highest on the schools in the South and along the coast. That's nothing against the west coast schools, it's just that I haven't had a chance to check them out. I've seen schools like NC State, Maryland, Virginia, Clemson, Alabama, Tennessee and some others. I do want to see a lot of the schools recruiting me in the Midwest and West, and I'll probably take a lot of those visits over the summer."

Last year Walker had 47 catches for 732 yards and eight touchdowns on offense, while recording 31 tackles and eight interceptions on defense. He has good speed but his size is his biggest asset.
