Arkansas Prepster Draws Duck Interest

L.T. Walker will be finishing his junior year at Wynne High School in Wynne, Ark. With the start of summer vacation, Wynne may make some unofficial trips around the country. Will he be heading west?

Walker told Steve Ryan of that he now has five offers from Tennessee, Ole Miss, Houston, Arkansas and Oregon. While he doesn't list Oregon as a top-5 team, it is noteworthy that the Ducks have gone into an area they have not historically recruited in. Considering the size of Walker, maybe there is good reason for the interest.

Standing at 6-feet-4 and weighing 290 pounds with a 5.0-second time in the 40-yard dash, it is understandable why Oregon finds L.T. Walker a candidate for a scholarship. The Ducks will need to find a replacement for Haloti Ngata after this upcoming season because the anchor of the Duck defense has made it clear he is headed off to the NFL.

Walker had 64 tackles, five sacks and a interception on a team that won the Class AAAA championship. He bench presses 320 pounds, Squats 440 pounds and Power Cleans 280 pounds. He carries a reported 2.9 GPA.

Time will tell if Walker finds his way to Eugene, but it is for sure that the Ducks are combing the nation for football talent.
