One of the competing recruiters was ex North Carolina coach Tommy Thigpen.
Walker was offered February of last year and committed that March. Walker just recently took his first official visit the 18th this year to seal the deal and see exactly how he will live his everyday life. Walker really loved the atmosphere UNC had to offer and could see himself playing there. Walker had plans to visit other schools in the past but Walker still stayed firm with the Tar Heels. Walker joins Donnie Miles as a definite secondary commit and we’ll have a chance to make an instant impact. The secondary is young and had it’s struggles last year. Look for Walker to use his instinct and coverage skills to come in and play early.
