Westfield RB Talks Faves

Bo Walker, a 5-8.5, 192-pound running back for Spring Westfield high school, has a pair of in-state schools on his recruiting trail. Scout.com raps with the senior-to-be about that, his top four schools, not to mention we grab his thoughts on those making up his Fab Four list. We also talk summer camp agenda, stat package and more...

The Westfield running back Bo Walker checks in at 5-8.5, 192 pounds and clocks a 4.53 forty. Not too shabby...Of course, when you post a 37.5-inch vertical at the GHA Combine it probably explains why he has "Houston and TCU" showing considerable interest. But what about the hometown Rice Owls? Will Walker join other Westfield alums Pierre Beasley and Vernon James on the Owl roster? And who else might be in the mix? We go below to talk faves with the tailback from Houston....

Favorites: "Right now, I guess you could say my top schools are U of H (no offer), TCU (no offer), SMU (no offer) and Rice (no offer)," Walker told Scout.com.

Thoughts on his Four Faves?

On the Coogs: "They're close to home, have a nice atmosphere, the campus is pretty nice and I like the stadium. But they have yet to offer."

On the Frogs: "They're close to home and one of the best football teams in their conference. Plus LaDanian Tomlinson went there and he is one of my idols. Still waiting on them to offer though."

On the Mustangs: "They have a very nice campus. And I just really liked everything I saw when I went up to SMU for a camp. They've been talking about offering."

On the Owls: "The academic level of their schools is obviously something you've got to look at. And the fact that they have a new coaching staff is cool. Plus they're close to home. I'm not really sure how much interest they have in me though, to be honest."

Summer Camp Agenda: "I went to (an OU) 3-day camp in Oklahoma. And, I went to the SMU, Houston and TCU camps."

Junior Season Stats: "138 carries, 1,200 yards, 13 TDs."

Track-And-Field Exploits: "100 meter time: 11.3; 200 meter time: High-23s."

Weight Room Numbers: "295 Bench, 505 Squat, 285 Power Clean."

Academics: "2.7 GPA and 1300 SAT."
