Walker Still Learning About Syracuse

Kobie Walker is a talented safety prospect who has gained a lot of interest from schools across the country. He recently added his seventh offer from Syracuse and discusses the latest inside.

The safety position has been a focus of the 2014 class for Syracuse recently, with new offers going out on a regular basis. One of the most recent offerees is three star Our Lady Good Counsel (MD) safety Kobie Walker.

"They offered while they were at my school," Walker said. "It was Coach (Fred) Reed. Syracuse really likes me and they want me to come in and play early. I had received mail and stuff but nothing too serious before the offer.

"It was great. I am excited about any offer. Getting an offer from a good football program is good. It felt great."

Walker is still learning about Syracuse. One of the ways he could get a feel for what it's like to be a part of the Orange program is by taking a visit. He says he would like to take that trip.

"Yeah they want me to come out there and check it out," Walker explained. "I don't know when or when I will yet. But they want me to come check it out. I don't know too much (about Syracuse). They've told me about how the school is, that it's a small school and private, they're strong with academics, and just telling me stuff that most people don't know.

"But everyone knows they have a good football program so they didn't really tell me too much about that."

Still early in the process, Walker says no one is standing out right now. While he is expecting more offers to come in, he says two schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"I don't have any favorites as of now," Walker claimed. "I just spoke with Virginia Tech and Rutgers today. They're both supposed to offer me. Right now, Kentucky is on me. They're probably recruiting me the most. I talk to them and Boston College every day.

"I talk to all the other schools as well, but those are who I talk to the most."

Don't expect the 6-foot-3 safety to make a decision anytime soon. Walker says he will decide whenever the feeling is right.

"I'm not in any rush," the three star safety said. "I'll decide whenever I feel it. Whenever I know, that's when I'll decide. I just want to feel comfortable. When I go visit and when I come there, it feels like home. With the coaches and the players, I feel at home.

"My major of course is important. I want to play of course. I don't plan on going somewhere to ride the bench."
