Current Commit Update: George Walker

IT caught up with Texas WR commit <B>George Walker</B> to talk state of the Longhorn football program and what the importance of making a verbal commitment means to him...</P>

"You make a commitment, you keep it," Walker told said. "I was brought up to stay true to your commitment...true to your word."

While the possibility exists that Mack Brown and Co. could lose a prospect who has already given his pledge, the Houston Westbury wideout believes the outcome of the Texas-OU game should not be (one of, or) the reason to justify "breaking your commitment".

"You can't let one game determine something like decommitting," said the state's 15th-ranked prospect. "Okay, so they (Texas) lost to Oklahoma. Why would anyone let that be the basis of their decision? Anybody who decides to go somewhere else, because of a loss to Oklahoma, never really wanted to go to Texas. That, or they never really thought about why they wanted to go to UT."

"I don't know what everybody else will do," Walker continued. "But I will be wearing Burnt Orange and white."

As for what happened in the Red River Shootout, the 6-1.5/6-2, 185-pounder chalked it up to having a bad day.

"Texas just had a bad day. That's how you got to look at stuff like that. You can't dwell on it or think that's the norm. You just had a bad day and you're going to have days like that. Unfortunately, they did against OU. But they can use that as motivation for the rest of the season."

"You can't say they weren't prepared," the B.J. Johnson-like talent said. "There were a ton of mistakes made in that game and you're not going to do well when that type of stuff happens against your biggest rival. So, that's why they lost the way they did."

With the Big Three moving on after the '03 season is complete, Walker gives Darryl Drake's wide receiving corps immediate depth with the possibility of game on-the-line minutes as a true frosh.
