Oscar Walker, 6-2, 205, RB, WR, 4.45, Barron Collier HS, Naples, Fla
Offensive Position/Stats in 2001:
"I had 946 yards but I did not play in the last couple games due to an injury. I had played in eight games before the injury."
On pass receptions last year Walker averaged over 20 yards per reception.
None at this time.
"I am willing to go anywhere. I would consider them if they offered."
Early season games:
"This weekend I had 179 yards against Lakewood Ranch on 21 carries and two touchdown. The week before I had 316 against Cypress Lake HS on 21 carries with two touchdowns."
It may be some time before Walker decides. "I'll wait till I take all my visit before I decide," he told me.
As great as his stats are as a running back Walker is being projected as a wide out by many at the next level. Oscar is known for an explosive first step off the line of scrimmage and is great at shaking off his man in the open field. Walker is also a tremendous athlete with a powerful upper body. He is known to go up and get the ball in traffic by simply "out-physical-ing" his defenders.
Walker really started grabbing the attention of recruiting coordinators after a dominating performance at the UCF camp this past summer.
