U.S. Army Combine: Sleeper DE Surfaces

The U.S. Army National Combine always produces several kids that have flown under the radar before hand. San Antonio defensive end Myles Walker would definitely fit into that category. He has the size and potential to be one of the top prospects in the nation for Signing Day '08.

Antonian High School's Myles Walker was one of the biggest surprises of the first day of the combine. He is one of the most physically gifted kids that walked through the door Thursday afternoon. Walker has offers from a number of schools, but only one sticks out as his overall favorite.

"UT," Walker said. "The coaches came down to watch me play at practice."

If Texas decides to extend an offer to this kid, it might be a tough task for other schools to jump into the race, but numerous programs are showing interest and several have already offered and .

"I'm hearing from Notre Dame, Purdue, Oklahoma, Ohio, TCU and the University of Michigan. I am hearing from a lot of big schools," Walker said.

The 6-foot-7, 245-pound Walker also claims to have offers from Texas A&M, Rice and Notre Dame.

Walker talked about what makes him a dominant player on the defensive side of the ball.

"I'm very good at getting the pass off the tackle. I am really quick around the edge. I get momentum and I kind of pump myself up to go on every play, and every play to go 110% every time," he said.
