Recruiting: Spring Game Attendee Todd Walker

Pflugerville QB <b>Todd Walker</b>, now with three more offers in hand, talks commitment-time frame, his latest campus visit and offers up a few tidbits on some of the programs chasing him...

Starting with the UT Spring Game visit, Todd Walker said Texas OC Greg Davis was his acting chaperone. Davis, of course, is the coach who works the Austin and surrounding area for the Horns' recruiting efforts, but is also very involved in wooing potential Longhorn QB prospects.

The Pflugerville dual-threat signalcaller said his Forty Acres visit "was fun and it was cool."

"I've been down there a couple of times so it's not like I haven't seen it before," he added, as if to explain his even demeanor when describing the trip.

With Spring Games scheduled at both Oklahoma and Texas A&M this weekend, Walker will not be in attendance at either of those, however, due to a track meet...

Scholarship offers from Alabama, Georgia Tech and Texas Tech recently hit the 6-1, 185-pounder's mailbox, adding to the offer list that already included Baylor, Houston, Purdue, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Kansas.

Don't expect Walker to narrow down his list of options just yet as he's set an after-May timetable to see who is really interested in him.

"May 1st is when they all start calling, so I can see who's interested in me. And then I'll be forming a list after the end of May."

That list will also include certain schools that "me and my dad are going to drive around and see, at least the colleges that I'm really into that I have not yet seen."

Sometime shortly after he hits the blacktop to tour select campuses, kid'll make a decision as he fully intends to wrap up the recruiting process before the Fall...

A few schools in the Big 12 South region that have an excellent shot are OU, Texas and Texas A&M. The Texas Hot 100 top 10/15-prospect was kind enough to toss out a few tidbits on those three schools.

Dean: OU...

Walker: They're competing for a national championship every year. They have a wide-open offense. I've only talked to their coach once. But they offered already, so I know they're interested.

Dean: Texas?

Walker: Just look at their depth chart. Not many schools that I'm considering have even gone a year without signing a quarterback and they've gone two years without signing one.

Dean: A&M...

Walker: I really like A&M. I talk to their coaches all the time. And they're telling me that they really want me to play quarterback for them. And that's what I want -- I want to play quarterback.
