CCSF's Walker is focused on the season

City College of San Francisco DB Kenronte Walker (6-1, 210) is one of the top players in northern California, but he hasn't let the hype go to his head. He's been hard at work getting ready for the 2009 football season and recently he let know where his focus has been...

"Honestly, recruiting isn't what I'm thinking about right now," the North Carolina native told "I was supposed to visit San Jose State recently, but I didn't go because I had a workout I was going to have to miss and this year I want it to be the best year for us as a team and for me, so I'm not letting anything get in the way of that."

CCSF rarely plays freshman due to the fact that they have a plethora of talent on hand, but because of his athleticism, Walker played extensively, posting 36 tackles, five passes defensed, two sacks and one interception while starting five games.

"I play corner or safety, it just depends on the situation for us defensively or how the offense lines up," Walker said back in June. "I love playing safety, but corner is great too. If the offense comes out in three or four wide, then I can drop down and play the slot or even go out wide."

"They liked to move me down into the box a lot when I played safety. That allowed me to blitz or use my size and speed (4.5) to run with receivers or even backs or tight ends."

Southern Miss, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Arizona, Arizona State, Clemson, South Carolina, Houston, Washington and California all expressed early interest in Walker and he said those schools continue to be the ones making the most contact at this point.

Walker is on pace to graduate this December and he will have three years to play two following the 2009 season.
