Walker Home from Trip

The linebacker prospect from La Puente, Wesley Walker, talks about his official trip to Westwood this weekend. Did he think about committing? And when will he?

Wesley Walker, 6-2, 225, La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat, said he was "tempted" to commit to UCLA on his official visit this weekend, but resisted.

"I told myself I wouldn't commit on my trip, or right after," Walker said. "I wanted to come home and talk about it, sleep on it. But I was tempted."

Walker said that he wants to get the decision over with, though. "I'll hopefully be deciding soon. Probably in the next couple of days. A Cal coach will be coming into the house, and Stanford's new coach, Teevens, will come in Tuesday and UCLA's coach Weber will come in Tuesday."

So, does he think he'll make a decision by Tuesday? "Yeah, I think so. The whole recruiting thing is fun, but I'm ready to make a decision. I'm ready to end this stuff. And I think I'll be able to do it by Tuesday."

He had said that UCLA was his leader before his official visit to UCLA, so is that still true? "I would say so. It's probably between UCLA and Stanford. But Stanford is just too unstable right now. They haven't even hired all of their coaches. Oregon, I liked them, and they moved up. But I'm not sure I'd want to live up there."

Walker's parents accompanied him on his trip to UCLA this weekend, and he said they had a good time also. "They like it a lot. I'd say it's my mom's top choice. My dad – he likes a lot of schools, and he likes UCLA. But he'll support whatever decision I make."
