"Everything, man. I just love being here," Walker told InsideTennessee. "Everything that Tennessee has provided for me."
It was the Macon County (Ga.) High School sophomore defensive tackle's first trip to Rocky Top but it was enough to rocket Tennessee to the head of the pack of favorites.
He is teammates in the Peach State with Scout four-star junior linebacker Roquan Smith. Both sat down with Tennessee coach Butch Jones, which stuck out as well.
"That talk I had with coach Jones about how he would love to have me and my friend Roquan Smith here," said Walker, who also saw the Big Orange participate in a spring practice. "I love how they competed out there, going up with one-on-ones. We do a lot of that down at Macon County."
The 6-foot-1, 260-pounder got his Tennessee offer close to two months ago.
"I was shocked," Walker said. "Where I'm from, I didn't know they were going to provide an offer like that. I figured they were going to check out my film."
The prospect said he speaks with Vols defensive coordinator John Jancek "a lot."
The D-tackle says he grew up a fan of the Georgia Bulldogs "but I'm going to pick wherever I feel like I'm coming home." He added that the Georgia staff not offering to this point isn't bothersome.
Macon County competes in GHSA Class AA. The Bulldogs reached the playoffs but fell in the opening round to eventual semifinalist Benedictine.
