Despite just one start as a sophomore last season, Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek cornerback Brian Walker picked up his first scholarship this past weekend. It was a big one for the 5-foot-11, 170-pounder.
"Auburn offered on Saturday when I went to their camp," he said. "That meant a lot to me because they were national champs last year."
What does it mean to get an offer with such limited playing time on the field too?

"That's huge knowing that I didn't start, but recruiting should be coming on now that I am starting."
Walker touched a bit more on the Tigers.
"I don't really know that much," he said. "The campus was nice, I liked it a lot. I like their stadium, it's a really beautiful stadium."
Auburn was just the first camp for Walker as he plans to go to NC State, South Carolina and Wake Forest too.
However, one school he hasn't heard from, Georgia is high on his list.
"I like Georgia," he said. "I like the history of them and the players that went there, Herschel Walker and AJ Green."
As mentioned, Walker only started one game as he backed up two senior corners last season while posting one interception on the year.
"I had a lot of plays and participated a lot, but I only started one game."
With limited film, Walker broke down his game.
"I'd say my physicality on the line is what sticks out and my catch up speed," he said. "I want to improve this year on being a leader and my off man technique. I want to learn from the veterans last year."
