2015 weak-side defensive end D’Andre Walker is a sophomore recruit to keep a close eye on, and he is racking up major offers. Today, the South Florida Bulls became the most recent notable program to extend an offer to Walker, and the Texas Longhorns reportedly offered him just yesterday. Walker is currently the highest on two storied SEC programs in the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs, as Bama offered him last month on an unofficial visit and Georgia offered Walker back in February.
The Langston Hughes High standout in Fairburn, Georgia also has offers from the Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, North Carolina Tar Heels, Mississippi Rebels, Tennessee Volunteers, Miami Hurricanes, and Florida State Seminoles.
D’Andre Walker will continue to see major offers like the ones from Florida State and Tennessee flow, but Alabama and Georgia will most likely always be huge factors in his recruitment until he decides to commit. But that’s all way in the future, and only the best prospects are able to nab early offers from schools like Georgia and Alabama. In fact, Walker is being recruited to the Bulldogs by defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, so it sounds like the in-state program is in an excellent position to land one of the top defensive ends in the 2015 class.
He is 6’3″, 210 pounds and still not even close to filling out his frame yet, and Walker has terrific upside. Alabama and Georgia are both headed for a huge recruiting battle over him, and it will be interesting to see if the Auburn Tigers decide to join their in-state rivals by offering Walker. He visited the Tigers on Saturday.
Walker is one of the top recruits to keep a close eye on in the 2015 class, and he is one of the most explosive defensive linemen in high school football. He runs a forty yard dash in the low 4.6s, and that’s good enough to make me think that he can be an elite pass rushing presence in college.
