If Dominic Walker isn’t putting a
Nebraska Cornhuskers hat on his head Dec. 30th at the Offense/Defense All-American Bowl in Houston, then it will be a shocking development.
“Yeah, that probably would be surprising,” the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Orlando Evans receiver said Thursday night following an in-home recruiting visit by Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck. “It went good. We had a long conversation, about two hours, and he filled me in on a lot of things and talking about me playing early. It was awesome. They are showing me a lot of love.”
Beck also provided him with information about another school high in his list.
Cincinnati cornerbacks coach Shannon Morrison called on the Walker household on Wednesday night, but he failed to offer up the latest news in the developments and job status of Bearcats head coach Butch Jones. The third-year head coach has been a hot commodity lately with all of the coaching vacancies, but Morrison did not talk about that with Walker.
No problem. Beck was happy to oblige Walker with information.
“That’s another thing. I heard he’s been interviewing with different programs. He wasn’t leaving for Colorado because they called him with an interview at Tennessee,” Walker said. “So, I’m pretty much baffled and nervous about Cincinnati. If he’s trying to leave that’s not good for me. Coach Morrison didn’t say anything about it the other night. I found out from Nebraska.”
And that sort of thing will weight heavily on his mind as he makes his Cincinnati visit this weekend, along with
Sanford Seminole athlete Ronnie Moore.
“I’m just expecting a good time,” Walker said. “I just want to go up there and enjoy myself and see the difference between Cincinnati and Nebraska and see what Cincinnati has to offer.”
It’s probably going to take an incredible sales pitch to lure Walker away from becoming a Cornhusker.
“I like both of them but I probably like Nebraska a little more because they have more to offer than Cincy,” Walker said of the
Big Ten school. “They have the great facilities and great training and everything is first class all the way.
“They tried to get me to commit today.”
