When you ask the 6-3, 185-pound rising senior from Christchurch, VA if he has any favorites, the first schools he lists are Florida State, Michigan, Penn State, LSU and Nebraska, but he's quick to point out that several others are in the hunt. NC State would fall into that second category, according to Walker.
"I have a good relationship with Mike Glennon," said Walker. "I was supposed to go over to his house recently, but I couldn't do it. I'm sure I will at some point. I've been to NC State befor,e and I was pretty impressed with what I saw. They've got a good program, and I like the coaches.
"The only downside might be that it didn't seem like everything revolved around football. I know at some other places that's the biggest thing in town, but I didn't get that feel while I was there. But that's the only thing I didn't like. It's still a school I'm looking at."
Walker also mentioned that in-state programs Virginia and Virginia Tech were in the hunt.
As a junior at Christchurch last fall Walker caught 47 passes for 732 yards and eight touchdowns. While many coaches might be tempted to use his playmaking ability on the offensive side of the ball, Walker was one of the top defensive players in Virginia. He recorded 31 tackles and eight interceptions, showing a knack for breaking on the ball and has the skill-set to star in a variety of defensive packages.
"I'm not really in a rush to narrow things down or make a decision, because I don't want to say I'm going somewhere and then change my mind," he explained. "When I make a decision it's (recruiting) going to be over."
Walker cited coaching and the atmosphere of a school as the top factors that he will consider before making his decision.
