2016 Cerritos QB Jimmy Walker is on the cusp of some offers from four-year schools

2016 Cerritos QB Jimmy Walker (6-2, 215) is hopeful that the right opportunity will come along very soon...

"I'm just sorta waiting to see what happens," Jimmy Walker told JCFootball.com. "I've been talking a lot with San Jose State, UNLV and New Mexico State and Montana just started talking to me on Tuesday night. 

"Incarnate Word, a school out of Texas, has also been in contact a little bit too."

As far as offers are concerned, none of the schools showing him interest have stepped forward to this point, but he's hopeful one will happen soon.

"Well, I finish up my school stuff very soon, so I'm just waiting patiently and hoping to get a chance," Walker noted. "A couple have hinted at an offer and I think if I am patient, one will come when it's time."

As a freshman in 2014, Walker completed nearly 53% of his passes for 2,323 yards with 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He followed that up this past fall by completing right around 50% of his passes for 2,997 yards with 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while leading his team to an 8-3 record.

"Honestly, I know completion percentage is big in some offenses, but in the way we run our offense, I'm not really that worried about it," Walker said. "Obviously I'd like it to be better, but with the way we take shots down the field, you aren't going to get those easy two and three yard completions where it's basically a handoff and then you let the receiver run with it. We take shots down the field and that is going to take away from some of your percentage.

"We had a really good running game, so I only got a little over 300 attempts whereas other guys are getting close to 500. 

"One thing that was nice for me though was having probably the best (JUCO) wide receiver in the country in De'Jai Whitaker to throw to. He made things easy on me because I could just throw it up there and he'd go and get it."

Walker will finish up his course work in the next 10 days and he will have three years to play two starting in 2016.

JCFootball.com will continue to keep tabs on Walker and we will update news on him as it happens.
