Five-star WR takes a visit

Five-star wide receiver Deion Walker out of Christchurch (Va.) Christchurch School made a final unofficial visit in the past couple weeks. Where did the 6-foot-4, 186-pounder go and how was the trip?
"I did go up to Penn State and it went pretty well," he said. "I attended a couple of their practices and they threw the ball a lot more than I thought they would. It was an eye-opening experience for me especially being a wide receiver. That's what we look for. All the receivers were big-time players and I meshed well with them. I liked the different plays they were running."
Walker spent some time with the coaches as well.
"I met with all of the coaches including Mike McQueary, Jay Paterno and Joe Paterno," he stated. "I had met coach Paterno twice before. This time he mostly talked about my class and big-time wide receivers.
"Overall I'd say the visit helps. Every visit somewhere helps a school and I got to see something different."
In the coming weeks, Walker has one more visit planned a return official to Penn State on September 8th.
Just before that visit on the 8th, the Rivals100 prospect will open the season with his team at Liberty Christian Academy.
"We're preparing for the opener," he said. "We had a scrimmage on Friday and lost, but overall the team looks pretty good especially for only practicing for four days. I know I had a couple touchdowns in the contest.
"I think I improved a lot in my route running this year. I just want to gain more weight by the time the season is over."
