Statesboro, Ga., running back Jimtavis Walker, who is 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, is heading to the SEC.
"He's the perfect back for their offense," said Statesboro coach Buzz Busby. "He's a total back because he has great speed, can block and has really good hands."
Walker, who has rushed for 1,363 yards and 24 touchdowns, was offered a scholarship by Florida back on June 20. Busby said he didn’t know of any other offers but Arkansas, Alabama and Auburn were actively recruiting him.

"The coaches from Alabama were here yesterday," Busby said.
"But he picked Florida because it's easy to see what type of program it is. Jimtavis was impressed to see coach Spurrier out there on the field and on TV actively coaching his kids."
