Recruiting picks up for Walker
Early on Mississippi State, Louisville, Memphis, Tulsa and Houston were the schools recruiting the talented defensive line prospect, but recently a new SEC program has begun to pick up the pace.
"Tennessee just started calling me," Walker said. "They were sending letters and stuff before, but now they have sorta picked things up.
"I'm looking for a school with tradition and honestly it will be the program as a whole -- how many guys graduate and go on will be a big thing too."
As a freshman, Walker contributed 16 tackles as a reserve on a team that went 7-2 and finished the year ranked No. 14 in the NJCAA.
"I think I'm a balanced defensive end, because I can play the run or rush the quarterback well, but because of my long arms I think I'm a better pass-rusher," Walker said. "I'm quick off the ball and I will show it all this season."
We'll continue to keep track of his progress.
Walker is on pace to graduate in December and wherever he ends up he'll have three years to play two.
