Walker Enjoys OU Victory

A few of the current Oklahoma commitments took advantage of the opportunity to travel to Norman this weekend to witness the Sooners stomp Miami. Defensive tackle commitment Casey Walker had visited the school before, but was taken aback by the fervent atmosphere surrounding the game on Saturday.

Casey Walker, a 6-foot-1, 290-pound defensive tackle from Garland High in Texas took in his first Oklahoma game on Saturday when the Sooners defeated Miami (FL) 51-13, but he was not alone.

"Oh yeah I was there," Walker said when asked if he had the chance to watch the game in person. "I went up with my friend Joe (Joseph Ibiloye). We had a great time."

"I also talked to R.J. Washington, Stephen Good, and Justin Johnson. We are all starting to become close and look forward to playing together. I was hoping that the quarterback (Landry Jones) would be there, but he was not able to make it out."

"It was a wonderful experience," he continued. "The atmosphere out there is great and the fans are crazy."

"I did not tour any of the facilities or anything like that, but I am looking to set up a date to come out for an official visit and do all of that again."

The three-star defensive tackle was also impressed by what he saw out of the OU defensive line. He also has some high expectations for how he thinks the season will play out.

"The defensive tackles played a great game," Walker explained. "Really the whole defensive line played great. I think that after watching them in that game that we will have a good chance to win the national championship."

Walker's prep team has stumbled out of the gates at 0-2 by suffering losses to Allen and DeSoto, but he at least took comfort in the fact that he and his teammates were able to shut down future Texas Longhorn Dan Buckner, who is a star receiver for Allen.

"We held him to like one catch for five yards," Walker informed. "Yeah, you know he was still talking though."

OU also remains in contact with Walker's teammate Chancey Aghayere. Walker is trying to keep the pressure on him as well.

"I am always trying to get him to come," Walker said. "I think that we will get a few more people. Whoever is uncommitted will probably commit on the spot if they take an official visit on a gameday."
