Walker May Profile

VandyMania.com caught up with 2009 prospect, Walker May, to get his take on Junior Day at Vanderbilt University. "I went up there with both of my parents, and my sister," Walker said. "At first, they sat us down with the recruiting coaches (Robbie Caldwell) over our area. "After that, they shuttled us over to the dorms and showed us around the campus. The facilities were really nice and everything. It was a pretty cool visit, I liked it a lot."

After having a chance to tour the facilities in-depth, Walker had the opportunity to meet with his position's coach. Afterwards, he was able to check out the Commodores up close, while they were scrimmaging. However, that wasn't the highlight of the visit for the 6-4, 210 pound LB/DE.

"I finally got to meet Coach Caldwell," Walker said. "I've been getting letters and stuff from him, and I've always wanted to get up there and meet him. It felt really good to meet him and to talk to him in person."

The Commodores are currently recruiting Walker as a defensive end. However, they are not the only school that has been taking a long look at the Alabama prep star. Walker has also been drawing interest from Miss. State, Ole Miss, UAB, and Duke.

Walker told VandyMania.com that most of the programs that have been recruiting him are intrigued with his speed. Walker reports a 4.55 in the forty-yard dash. However, his play from a season ago is another reason why he has been grasping the attention of the programs aforementioned. Last fall Walker registered 96 tackles and 8 sacks for Briarwood Christian High.

Walker is no where near his final decision. Nevertheless, he does know what he desires in a program. "My decision is going to have a lot to do with the school itself; whether I like the campus or not," May said. "I want to go to a place where I feel comfortable; I have to love where I am. I don't want to just go to a school because of their football program. Football is something that you do, but it's not all you do. I would also like to go to a place where I can have a good relationship with the coaching staff."
