Rivals100 wide receiver Deion Walker hit the road again over the weekend. This time the 6-foot-4, 186-pounder took his third official visit of the season out to South Bend.
"It went really well," he said. "It was a really exciting game and the fans were real good.
"I got there Saturday morning around 11. When I first got there I met a couple of recruits and talked to the coaches for a bit. Then I went outside and watched them walk from the chapel to the stadium. After that, Coach Weis spoke to the team before the game.

"The game went really well. They ended up losing in triple overtime, but the fans were in it all the way through. They were pretty wild which was cool. I watched the receivers and they wanted to throw it, but the wideouts had trouble getting open. I do think within time they'll be getting better and from what I saw there's a chance I could possibly come in and play early. Overall it was a great experience and my first ever at a Notre Dame game. The loss didn't hurt them at all."
Following the game, Walker met with his host, Jimmy Clausen.
"I hung out with him and he was real cool," he said. "He talked about how he knew where I was coming from in recruiting and all the options. He told me not to rush anything. Aside from that, he talked a lot about how he liked it there and how Coach Weis wants to throw the ball."
On Sunday, the four-star prospect met with the coaches.
"I talked to coach Powlus, Weis and others," he said. "They talked about a lot of things. Coach Weis basically said, if I want to get a good education and play big-time football, he doesn't see why I shouldn't look at Notre Dame since they have a lot to offer in both aspects."
The visit was a good one for Walker. Where do they stand now for his services?
"It was a really cool visit and caught me off guard a bit," he said. "They are definitely up there with the other schools. I liked it a lot and had a good time. I saw myself going there, especially with the academics they have to offer, that's huge."
Currently Walker has one more official set to Southern Cal on December 1st. Before that though, Walker may take a couple more trips.
"I may also go to Cal-Berkeley," he said. "I might go to Virginia Tech on November 17th and perhaps NC State or Virginia possibly too."
