Brandon Walker could be one of the last players added to this year's recruiting class. The senior kicking specialist received a call from Notre Dame the second week of January, and then received an in-home visit coach Brian Polian last Thursday.
Although Walker is still committed to the University of Louisville, he will be making a trip to South Bend for an official visit.
"Right now I'm kind of taking a break from the media," Walker responded when reached by phone Monday evening. "All I can really say is that I have an offer from Notre Dame, and I'm visiting this weekend. I plan to make a decision by next Wednesday or so."
The way in which this situation is playing out is difficult for Walker. Louisville went through a coaching change recently and up until the middle of last week, the new staff had not been in contact with him.
Notre Dame had not originally intended on bring in a kicker this season, but with the Irish scrambling to piece together their recruiting class, Walker could take one of the unused scholarships.
