Myles Walker: Still Waiting

Nobody had heard of Myles Walker until he walked through the doors at the U.S. Army National Combine in January. By simply showing up and performing, the Antonian Preparatory defensive end saw his stock soar through the roof and land him at number 24 on the Pre-Evaluation Texas Top 100. What is the latest in recruiting for Walker?

"Schools have been contacting kind of a lot lately, but not as much as I had thought they would," Myles Walker said.

At the combine in San Antonio, Walker listed a number of schools that he thought he had offers from, but this was not the case.

"I don't have any offers right now," Walker said. "I made a mistake. I thought I had some, but I didn't."

Walker may not have received his first offer, but he is still drawing interest from some of the top programs from around the nation.

"I'm hearing a lot from Texas A&M. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have started showing a lot of interest. The Florida Gators are coming on strong, and Cal has started sending letters and talking to me," Walker said.

"Texas A&M is my top school right now," Walker added. "I like the school and the way everything goes down there. Everything is really nice. Their school just fits me well. I don't want to go far from home."

Many people thing that the 6-foot-7, 245-pound Walker would be better suited to play basketball on the next level. Walker is also being recruited to play both sports by A&M and talked about which sport he would rather play on the next level.

"I'm not sure if I am going to get any taller, but I will probably play basketball if I grow above 6-foot-10," Walker said.

Walker recorded 61 tackles and one sack during his junior season at Antonian College Preparatory High School.
